Need Advise on new conroe budget system!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi eveyone, after making up my mind i think i will sale my current system and build a new system with C2D chip and my budget is around 800$. I will be using this system for video converting so the video card does not need to be too fast or exspensive.

Also it would be nice if the system can be overclock later on for better performance

So would you guys recommend me some parts?

I think i would start with Intel E6300 chip
2GB of RAM pc6400( any brand)

thanks guys.

The S3 is better than the P5B so there is no need to add that

I'd get rid of the case and get a better PSU, like the Zippy I linked too

Note that the RAM you picked won't OC that well

Is the PSU that important and need to be that exspensive?

What RAM do you recommend for about 250$(2GB)?
what about these?
265$

or
278$

Concerning your budget, 2x512mb of ram would be the best option. 2gigs isn't necessary yet....mainly it cuts down on load times, and some choppiness with ultra high texture levels, and filtering methods.

If you were to get 2 gigs, then you would have to sacrifice your PSU, case, and videocard......which wouldn't be advisable.

Edit: Yes, the PSU is the single most important component to a reliable computer!
