Opty Vs Conroe e6300 - Page 3

post #21 of 26
It seems since you're already updating practically everything in your 939 build you should just go ahead and do the Conroe instead.

Also I noticed that you went with a single stick of DDR(2). I reckon you intend to do dual channel later when a little more money comes your way? Because the performance benefit from dual channel is pretty significant.

From what i have been reading, single chanle and dual channel does not make much difference as long as the memory bandwidth demand is as not high, and most of application do not. Single stick can be useful if he is considering adding another gig in the future. Just my 2 cent.

If you planning on getting the P5b-E don't get the Rev.1.01G cause it not a great overclocker.
I have a p5b-e and so far it has worked out great. I am running my e6600 at 3.5ghz without any problems and only 54C load and 45C idle. It can't go post 3.8ghz regardless, know that. Setting up RAID 0 was a cinch too.

Yeah I was planning on getting another stick when some more cash comes in, maybe in a month or so. I know there's a big difference with 2gigs over 1 gig. If I can squeeze the extra cash i might be able to pick up 2gigs in one shot but I am planning not to just in case.

I will look into the p5b-e but I think it's still a bit pricey over the gigabyte s3. I'm gonna check it out today. I certainly won't get a p5b deluxe though. I do not plan to go crossfire.

Have you considered a dedicated power supply for your gpu?

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...152&CatId=1076


or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104019

Enterprise gives his opinion on one here

http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...e-gpu-psu.html

This one has some reviews and a few benches

http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...dx10-card.html

The TT one is only $58 CAD, which would save you quite a bit of money, you'd have some extra cables in your case, an extra power cord on the back, and wouldn't have that shiny new psu, but it'd save you quite a bit of $ which you could then put towards a better mobo or more RAM. Unless you really wanted that shiny new psu... wouldn't blame you lol.
