I need the build for around 1200. These is my first attempt with no video card it seems like its gonna be overbudget once I get a video card and cooling. I was trying not to give up with E6400 for an E6300, but is there any real difference after overclocking? Do I really need anything other than a SATA cable if I get the OEM MoBo? Any other suggestions or parts that I'm missing that I need? Also, If you could find a part for cheaper I'd appreciate it.

I will be saving my X-Fi, Monitor, and Peripherals

Thanks in Advance

PS. Sorry for the bad text formatting it was copied out of an excel file.

yes, with an OEM mobo, you will need the second cable, as well as your IDE cables for optical drives. and get some AS5 instead of that thermal stuff you have. and this is a pretty good GFX card for $200.

Ok so I'm gonna get some generic IDE cables
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812104112

I was probably gonna wait for the 8800s to come out causing the other graphic
cards to drop in price. I was also wondering if I should cut anywhere to save more money for the graphics card and cooling for it.

I already have AS5 and Coollaboratory Liquid PRO is supposedly better dispite being harder to work with.

Do you have a OS to go with your new build?

For a card to keep you under budget would be the asus x1950 pro. When they come back into stock at newegg they're priced nice at $170.

I already got a copy of XP, but no one seems to be answering my question of should I wait for the 8800 series to come out? Would that drop prices of other video cards?

I say hold out for another 2-3 weeks when the 8800 series start to fill the retail channel and then jump on newly price dropped cards OR maybe even splurge and get a 8800.

Okay, one last consideration. I already have an Antec Truepower II 550W with dual 19A rails. I was wondering if I really do need a new power supply. Remember I'm gonna be picking a new graphics card with whatever money I have left (around $200) after the 8800s come out so prices go down.
