I mean sorry that you feel that way but i am serious about my questions,the reason why i am spending so much money is because i only do an upgrade every 4 years and the way i look at things is when i do an upgrade i like to buy the fastest stuff around at the time,and then i know that i will still have a fairly good system over the next 3 to 4 years,this pc i am using now was a machine i got around 4 years ago and its a 2Ghz pentium 4 with about 1 gig of ram,so a few months ago i decided it was time for an upgrade,and not having all that amount of money at once i have been slowly buying parts as i can save enough money,roughly i have been buying one part each pay i get,like the motherboard one week and another bit the next week.
My last pc i never did any overclocking,but i decided that i want to overclock this time around so i better start leaning on how to go about that,i don't really want to buy a lower end cpu like a E6300 just because its my first time at overclocking,i have to learn at some point.
All the parts i got i did a fair bit of reading about whats the best motherboard to go for etc,but the cpu was the part that i couldn't make my mind up on and i have had the machine fully build except for the cpu which i have been trying to work out if i should go for the QX6700 or the X6800 for the last 6 weeks
All the reading i did on the QX6700 i still couldn't make my mind up,i really had to ask a few people on how they seen the QX6700,to me,i kept seeing the QX6700 as like a downgrade to the X6800 due to the lower clock rate,and i wanted to see if anyone has done the upgrade from the X6800 to the QX6700,and see what there thoughts were.
This is my parts list that i kept while i was picking out all the parts and buying 1 bid each week or every two weeks
CASE Coolermaster CM Stacker 830 Black
HARD DRIVE Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10,000RPM
POWER SUPPLY Enermax Galaxy 1000 Watt
CPU COOLER Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX
MOTHERBOARD Asus P5W64 WS Pro
GRAPHICS CARD ASUS 8800GTX 768MB DDR3 HDTV 2DVI-I HDCP
RAM 4 GIGS 2 packs of G.Skill F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ 2GB Kit
DVD BURNER Plextor PX-760SA SATA Internal Dual Layer DVD-RW 18x
CPU X6800 or QX6700 undecided
I took some photos while i was building the machine the other day,you can see here that i am serious and not talking bs,i am just anxious to get the last part so i can stop using this old pc and start using the new machine
you can see that theres no cpu yet on that motherboard.
Sorry for this long reply i felt like i had to justify my thread.
