EVGA nForce4 SLI NVIDIA Socket 775 - Page 4

post #31 of 53
This is making little to no sense to me.
1. You not buying a C2D compatible motherboard
2. Your buying a motherboard that won't OC more than about 20%
3. Your investing in a cheap SLI setup?

I'd recommend getting a Core 2 Duo ready motherboard, and buying a decent single video card for now. Then later, you can upgrade the board and buy a second video card, instead of buying a new set of video cards.

The point is, why are you buying old technology when the new stuff is the same price?

I see, but looking down the road, your going to have to upgrade your motherboard to support C2D. Not to mention, what's the point of running SLI when you on a Celly D?

I'll stop trying, and say, buy the board.

I'm trying to put together at least a decent gaming system. A budget system, at that. I've been looking around for nearly a year for parts, and from what I've been looking at, I can get a relatively good system for around $700. I don't want to spend much more than that. I can put links up to all the parts I have in mind, if anybody would care to look over them and see where I'm going wrong instead of just looking at the motherboard and saying "Oh, that's all kinds of wrong!"

Everybody's looking at the board and saying its 'old tech'. Trust me. It's leaps and bounds over what I already have. And frankly, the semi-older stuff is all I can afford in the forseeable future.

Now we can help you. What you had before wouldn't have been a decent gaming rig. Going to see what I can find with that budget.

Let me know if that link doesn't work. Never used a checkout link before. You'll be just slightly over your budget on your case. I wasn't exactly sure what you already had. Others will come in and edit a few things around. Newegg prolly isn't going to ship out till the 26th. We should have a decent set up by then.

Edit: If your looking to overclock you could get a decent board and ram for about 100-150 more. It really only becomes hard when you start going toward the high 600 mhz plus end. The main reason of me picking that motherboard was because it was the only one with 2 pci express slots. Aside from that I don't really know much about it.

Just a note. Going SLI does improve your system. But going to the next card up is usually your best bet. I'd only go sli if I had the highest end card out.

Oddly enough, that's the exact harddrive and graphics card I was going to get.

I wasn't planning on spending that much on a processor, and you're short on a lot of things I was planning to buy. I'll put up my list of items I was going to purchase a little bit later on...

Alright. Here's the list of all the parts I was originally going to get.

And yes, I am aware that I'll be ordering from two different companies. This was just the cheapest setup I could find from what I was looking at.

I know that the media card reader isn't exactly necessary, but I know I'll use it eventually, and figure I'll save a few dollars in shipping by buying it now. Then entire setup comes to just over $700 with shipping.

Funny how you case costs more than your processor...

Ok, here are my suggestions..
Buy This Case for 35 Shipped
With that extra $$, buy this motherboard instead of the EVGA and buy these sticks of memory instead of the Ultra.

The reason being is,
1. The motherboard is probably one of the best overclockers on the market for the price (10x better OCer than the EVGA)
2. It's core 2 duo compatible, so you can upgrade your processor later instead of having to change you motherboard (since the EVGA isn't)
3. If your planning on going SLI, your going to need a new PSU, and probably a new CPU to take effect of the SLI benefits (GPU's will be bottlenecked)
4. Those sticks of ram are a whole lot better than the Ultra you linked from Tigerdirect, will run tighter timings, and will OC much better for a few bucks investment.
