Obey The Kraken DX10 Build

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone! This is going to be the first post I have here on Overclock.net

I've been runing a 1ghz Socket 370 Intel with 360MB of ram for way too long, I've saved a ton of money and it's time to blow it all..

Soo This is going to be my new build:

Motherboard: Asus Striker 680i
Prossessor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
RAM: Corsair PC2 8500 (2gb)
Video: Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GTX (they have a nice new cooling setup)
CPU Cooling: ASUS Silent Square Sleeve CPU Cooler
PSU:KINGWIN ABT-600MA1W ATX 12V Ver.2.2 600W Power Supply
HDD: WD SATA II 250gb (windows), And A WD 200gb PATA 133 HD (Music,Pictures,Videos)
DVD Burner: LITEON DVDRW SATA Burner
CASE: LIan LI PC-777 Black (Don't hate, I like it)
CASE COOLING:AeroCool XtremeTurbine-Black 120mm Case Fan
Fan Controller: VANTEC Fan and light Controller (blue neon)
RAM COOLING: Corsair Dominator RAM Cooler
Keyboard: Saitek Eclipse (blue)
Mouse: Razer Copperhead (blue)
Monitor: Sceptre 21" Widescreen HD LCD


That my friends is how you set sails, quite a bump from a 1ghz......I hope soo...hahaha just kidding..


Everything is Ordered and should be here tomorrow (the 14th)

I have the Case. LCD, Keyboard, And Mouse here already.

Here are some pictures soo far, Which I'm going to post a ton of, and kinda do a review on everything I'm using.

Thank you,
Nicholas

Looks like a soldi build to me..Nice parts and will be a rather large jump from your old system.

My comments, after saying Welcome!!!
  • RAM: Corsair PC2 8500 (2gb) - you probably would have been cheaper and better off with the Team Xtreem DDR2 800 kit for $305 at tankguys.
  • CPU Cooling: ASUS Silent Square Sleeve CPU Cooler - Why not one of the good coolers, like the Thermaltake Big Typhoon, Tuniq Tower, or Scythe Ninja
  • PSU:KINGWIN ABT-600MA1W ATX 12V Ver.2.2 600W Power Supply - UGH! Kingwin? Not really a brand known for good PSUs. Get an OCZ GameXStream 600W instead
  • HDD: WD SATA II 250gb (windows), And A WD 200gb PATA 133 HD (Music,Pictures,Videos) - Why not two Sata drives? better performance! And you could even put them in RAID0. PATA is pretty much outdated for HDD's
  • DVD Burner: LITEON DVDRW SATA Burner - SATA is still not fully matured for optical drives. Here I would have gotten a regular IDE drive

Otherwise, good rig! Some comments are minor (like the RAM), but I would definately replace that PSU, even if you bought the other one already.
