post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, finally got the cash required for my new setup and want to run it past ya'll incase any last minute changes are required. please dont suggest a $500 part in place of a $200 part: the price i'm at is where I want to stay at/be close to. So please keep any suggestions within close price to original part. Now thats all said and done, here's what I got:

CASE
Thermaltake SOPRANO VB1000BWS Black
-$79.99-

MOTHERBOARD
EVGA 122-CK-NF67-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i LT SLI
-$189.99-

PROCESSOR
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache
-$223.90-

VIDEO CARD
EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
-$289.99-

POWER SUPPLY

swap that memory out for some G skill HZ's , they use d9 micron chips and are great overclockers. That memory you have above uses primos flash chips which basically suck :\\


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231065

those are the HZ's

swap out that PSU for a corsair 620W, i have it, its very nice and doesn't have power issues such as ripples like the gamexstream does.


EDIT: Also, do you need sli? if ur not gonna go sli get the DFI P965-s Dark motherboard, its the best overclocking motherboard for the price, besides maybe the gigabyte Ds3, but that mobo's ugly as hell lol

Good system, but why don't you wait a month and a half and get a Q6600 for that price?

antec 900 case will be better for ocing and have much better air flow. I like the EVGA-680i-A1 motherboard which is $224.99

well then gett all that but the cpu and vid card....to see what you can get..its worth the wait...since if your P4 will work in the new motherboard you can at least wait till quad price drop. and not waste money on a C2D and waiting to sell it for sell to someone else
