My new build - Comments/Suggestions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ram: OCZ DDR2 4096MB Vista Upgrade Edt. PC2-6400 2x2048MB 800MHz. (5-6-6-15)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 8MB, BOXED Socket 775
CPU Cooling: Tuniq Tower 120
Motherboard: Asus Striker Extreme socket775
PSU: OCZ GameXStream 850W
GFX Card: XFX GeForce 8800GTX 768MB GDDR3


I have not bought this yet, except the GFX Card which I already have in my current setup.
I post this in order to get suggestions for replacement for my bad choices.

Can anyone point out my weaknesses and post alternatives for these? Prices is not the biggest issue, I'm quite flexible. But of course not twice the price of my post please. I mostly think my RAM choice is the weakest, so I'm glad for any input here.

Looks good so far, but why a 850W PSU? Even if you SLI you won't need that much.

I have a rather large amouth of HDDs. Which is the reason why i choose a somewhat large PSU.

I might also keep my current CPU and just change the rest, any input on that?

I think the Q6600 would be your best upgrade. Definitely get Vista to get full use of your GTX there.

So I made good choices all over the table here? No real bummers? I might choose another PSU, jsut have to read about power outputs. Any good suggestions here? I need a strong PSU that also has the watt to pull my HDDs.

Im running Vista atm, loving it.

How about my memory choice? Any better around the same pricerange? Or somewhat higher?
