Need help on building new rig pls

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, I came here cause this is the best place to decide the final decision on upgrades ect. I'm having motherboard problems lately, so i decided to change teh entire rig and move on from s939. I'm quite fond of the c2d's so I need a bundle that doesn't cost too much, but has good performance for benchmarking/gaming

Basically I can't decide between the 6420 or 6600 processor, I always overclock, so I think a 6420 will be enough.

The motherboard, I found for a good price, the Abit fatal1ty nf650 edition.
If you guys suggest anything else which supports up to 800Mhz ddr2, skt 775, and overclocks well let me know (I can't decide on which chipset to go , maybe further on i'll upgrade to SLI or Xfire, depends which will be worth most that time)

And one final thing, I'm sure i wanna get the corsair 2 x 1Gb twinX, or the dominator, they r both 800Mhz, but price wise there's a big difference. Which would you guys go with, if there isn't much of a noticable difference, i'd prefer to go budgetwise.

Rep+ to good suggestions

the 6420 isnt that great of an overclocker...its a good cpu, but personally id be on the lookout for either a used 6400 or 6600 with weeks 27-29 and 31-33. for ram, dont get the dominators, get 2 gigs of GSKILL HZ ddr2-800, some of the best overclocking ram out there. as for a motherboard, my asus P5N-E SLI is a great OC'er, usually capping out at 480 fsb, which is always enough for a 6600 and usually enough for a 6420.

Id also go with the 6600, like cogan said if u can find a used one thats even better.

As for the motherboard if your not gonna go with a dual gpu setup id go with the P5B plus, overclocking should run much smoother and with better results on this board. It's also a very stable motherboard...

Or if you plan on going sli, cogan already suggested a great board around the same price as the one you were looking at and the one i suggested. Again i second getting some G. Skill HZs, good luck with the build

good suggestions, aegis, havent seen you around much! the dfi-965-s is also supposedly a great overclocker, but they are pretty hard to get your hands on.
