New E6400 Build - Page 2

post #11 of 12
hey man - nice rig you got coming...

honestly, i would go with the P965-DS3 board, if you just looking for stock speed, the E6400 cpu is also a very good buy, can't go wrong for it's value and performance...

just keep in mind that the DS3 board is not sli-ready, but as you said you only planning on running a 7600Gt for WOW. and besides, sli is only really effective if you are running games and apps at super high resolutions...

i was going to go with sli as well, but don't see the point as everyone has said that the performance increase is not inline with the price increase of getting two cards and a mobo that supports it...

stick with the E6400, DS3, 2gb RAM (your choice as long as it's DDR667 - 800mhz).. you can't go wrong... enjoy...
