Yeah Im going to be making a new thread..and Im going to post exactly what im getting for a my new system...Im going to ask exactly what I need to do in the bios to overclock my processor and RAM to 1:1. I read some of the overclocking guides on the stickies but I still need Help because thats a more general guide not a guide specific to my setup/motherboard.

I'll Need to Know what vcore is the max for my RAM and what Ghz People are getting for the Core 2 Duo with a non-watercooling setup, Because I wont be able to get water cooling until Later on.

I'll Update my system specs in the mean time.

Ok... Budget $815, Core 2 Duo rig (per request through PM):
Total: $803.87 + $10.38 shipping = $814.25

If I get more money should I do the X1950XT or should I avoid it because 1950PRO overclocks better or something..

If you have more money, get the XT

I just had to stay below $815, and the video card is the most logical downgrade

chozart...do you have a good core 2 duo/SLI supported motherboard in mind?

Read the orginal post. I changed it. Tell me what you think.

No one has told me to go exactly this...this it what "I" Want.

I dont want a AM2 ...cause AMDs coming out with like 4 more socket in the next two years and they suck atm anyway.

But i still want SLI so i can have the power late on to run phyisic Cards and on a 64-bit OS...I dont want to Depend on overclocking, but I want to take advantage of it.

I'm also willing to save up more $ for this setup.

Well... the only boards that are decent and support SLI are the boards based on the nVidia nForce 680i chipset. However, these boards don't com cheap ($250 and up.... wayyy up). Also, it's a new chipset with some issues. Especially the reference boards (and atm most of those boards are based of the reference board, except ASUS I believe), have issues with RAM and SATA ports that act up.

Personally, I would recommend a good , single card set up, and then later just upgrade that 7950 to a DX10 card. That will be more than powerful enough.

I cannot imagine a rig with a 680i board, and E6300, decent RAM and a good video card for $800... that'll drive the price up to at least $900.

PS: don't even bother about nForce4 and nForce 5xx Intel boards... they don't overclock at all!

yeah I understand the price...but atm is seems like the full package...and you cant get better then two cards.. compared to one. unless there two cards that are old old. but I understand what your saying..and that will make it alot cheaper for me now...and I can always upgrade later..and who knows ..by then they'll have better mobos with the bugs worked out.

But Still SLI is a good thing to have in your back pocket..two card capibility...Seems like other then getting a second 7950 all I would only need to upgrade the Processor..and there you go im back in the game (when times get tough for this system in the future)

You only will need SLI if you get a high res monitor (1680x1050 / 1600x1200 or better)

And also, a single 8800GTX will beat dual 7950GT's easily!
