post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm wondering if you guys can help me build a computer. This computer will be used for lots of gaming and video rendering. My budget is at $1800 give or take. I'm a fairly good overclocker. Thank you.

After a lot of help here is my build:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 - $369

MoBo: Asus P5W DH Deluxe - $260

RAM: Team Xtreeme PC2-6400 2GB - $321

Video: Sapphire Radeon x850XT - $150 (Use until R600 DX10)

Case: Thermaltake Armor VA8000 - $150

PSU: PC Power and Cooling 750W - $214

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 320GB Perpendicular Recording - $108.00

Cooling: Tuniq 120 - $50

Thanks so much for help!

You definately don't want that graphics card. The x850XT PE is a very weak card, especially for video rendering. I suggest a NVIDIA 7800GTX or something around there, or if you are an ATI fan, a x1900.

Other than that, those are some good choices.

I have a question about newegg. If I ship it to Canada would customs put taxes on it? Also, is the PC Power % Cooling Silencer 750 worth it? Thinking about getting that PSU.

Ouch, didn't look at the Country you're from...

You will get dinged with taxes at the border, especially with a shipment like that

I'll go put together another build
