Building the ultimate gaming PC with unlimited $$$... - Page 4

post #31 of 206
I'll make a realistic $3500 build for the whole setup... Be back shortly. And DDR2 1000 RAM will work in a DDR2800 mobo, it'll just be clocked back, and you can OC it to DDR2 1000 on a decent motherboard, giving you more headroom on your OC.

That's insane, c'mon. And I took back what I said early on the "unlimited funds" comment as it was a poor choice of words. I'm looking to spend between $4K and $5K.

That clockspeed is per core. And the QX6700 has 2 more cores. Thus, despite the lower clock speed, the QX6700 is a better choice in the long run. And the QX6700 has an unlocked multiplier too (i think) thus can overclock to the speeds of X6800 no problem. QX6700 is a way better choice.

All Core 2 models E6600 and up have unlocked multiplier

Cool, I'll check it out, thanks.

That is wrong. Only the Extreme models have it unlocked (x6800, xq6700).

http://www.nvidia.com/page/quadroplex.html they are only around $25,000 a piece I would get 4 or 5 of them. I think you should make it 2 30"dell now that I think about it.

wow, give me a break you don't need that stuff to make a average game or render. (maybe) if it was pixar, but if your making a video game which is optimized to render in real time the files arn't that huge so whats the point.

OK OK, I know it isn't Quad Core, and it isn't SLI, but it's upgradable to either, and is still an amazing rig anyone would be happy to own.

Motherboard: eVGA 680i SLI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188009
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115003

Keyboard: Logitech G15: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126179

That totals under $3,400. The mouse, case, kayboard are all personal preference, though I would certainly recommend a Full Tower. I chose the 8800GTS and E6600 because no games out fully utilize either of those yet, and they are still cheaper than the "absolute best" There is no need right now for a QX6700 and dual 8800GTXs except for bragging rights. However, with that mobo and PSU, you can easily upgrade to quad core and SLI when they become necessary.

I like to play flight sims, and with the new FSX from Microsoft, believe me, that game requires some serious hardware. At a minimun, I am looking at the X6800 and 8800 GTX, but not dual GPU's.

What do you recommend for cooling?

Thanks for info bro!
