Er new build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think?

Armor case
eVGA 680i
E6600
SILVERSTONE DECATHLON DA850
120 extreme w/ SilenX 120 fan
ocz sli 1066
eVGA 8800 gts 320 superclocked
2x 150 raptors
err a floppy drive
2x liteon sata optical drives
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1


I'm hoping to get the parts by Thursday, completing the build that night.

SLI for sure is in the future.

I've never tried a modular PSU before, I'm the worst when it comes to cable management.

Not too bad... but I would do this:

Replace the Raptors with a pair of these:Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250620AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM. Plenty performance and saves you $260.00
Replace the RAM with these: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ - Retail $119.99. SLI RAM is a gimmick, which you need to disable anyways when you overclock. The G.Skill has D9's and overclocks really well. Saves $46.00

Total savings $306.00

Thus, either pick up your second video card right away, or get an 8800GTX!

In either case, the DA750 will be enough power (yes, also for 8800GTX's in SLI)

Replace the EVGA with a P5N32-E while you're at it too.
