New Build (e6600 and 8800gtx)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new system pretty soon.(mainly for games and some a/v editing) I'm looking at the following:

CPU http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115003
GPU http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130072
RAM http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820231065
mobo http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...2E16813131045R
HDD 2x in RAID 0 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...58#detailspecs
PSU http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=316504

sound http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...2E16829102006R and http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16836121126

I could get better deals I'm sure if I shop around some more. What should I do with the suite that comes with the hdd's? Overall what do you guys think about this.

You may wanna get a 680i mobo....the board you selected is a great overclocker etc, but you really want a board that's going to support those 1333 (QDR) CPU's later on....Also are you likely to go SLI in the future?

I doubt I will go SLI in the future. 1 gtx should be enough.

100% Perfect i think. Not so sure about sound card though, not into sound.

Those speakers are great, i have the 2.1 version, but i personally don't like 5.1 : /

If you ever want to upgrade CPU 1333 FSB support is good idea, if not then stick with what ya got.

A sound card makes a world of a difference in games. I don't think I would ever play Battlefield 2142 without my XtremeGamer.

Would I be better off getting the P5K, perhaps?

Please note, the P5B DeluxeDOES support 1333FSB with a new BIOS

http://event.asus.com/mb/fsb1333/


The P5K is the standard, vanilla board with the new P35 chipset. While it's the new chipset, features are likely to be barebones. If you wanted to get a P35 chipset that would be rival tot he P5B Deluxe/Commando/Premium you would want this;

It's amazing that supplier has the P5K series in stock, doesn't look like anyone else does....

Nice picks!

Be aware than an 'open box' motherboard might come without ANY Accesories. It can range from just the board in a plain box (I've had that happen) to the motherboard with everything included (which just happened with my P5N32-E SLI).

Although the price of the GameXStream is unbeatable, I'd personally get a better PSU. The GameXStream suffers from ripple at high loads, and thus isn't really suited for high-end rigs like yours.
I would look at the Corsair 520W, although it's a bit more expensive. On top of being a better PSU, it's also modular. And both deliver the same current on the 12V rails, so that's no issue either.
