Pimp my Ride 6000 X2

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
See anywhere to make improvements on a new build. I am going to propose this build for my engineering computer at work, the one I'm using now is woefully inadaquate (5 years old) using Solidworks for solid modeling, need a good solid numbers cruncher with good graphics.

Umm first off it would be alot easier to just save the shopping cart from newegg and just post the link. Oddly enough I don't have adobe reader installed ... weird

Don't go the 6000 route, go Intel C2D and OC. I made the same mistake but went FX..

Yea, I thought about the Intel route too, but considering this will be a computer at work, I may not overclock at all, so considering stock speeds I thought maybe AMD was the way to go. If it was a personal computer I would probably go E6600 & overclock the snot out of it.

A overclocked Core 2 Duo rig will outperform any x2 setup. But it depends on whether whoever your building this for approves of overclocking your rig. You could build a budget rig with a E4300 and push it upto 3ghz and it will outperform that x2 6000 by a fair margin

Since you don't want to overclock it, I'd say stick with a AM2 setup, their generally more energy efficient and cooler also.

Not on stock they an't.. Well at least hen 90nm proc's..

The e6600 is the same price as the 6000+ and it's a bit better...

Plus a minor oc to like 2.5 will do something and your boss won't mind.. (shh)

Any mobo reccomendations for the e6600, if I oveclock at all I doubt I would stop at 2.5. I'd prob find a reasonable upper limit, stess test till the end of time & then back down a bit to make sure it was super stable. The last two engineering computers bought here recently were Dell's with 6300's in them, not bad, but I know I could make one to runs circles around those, I would lose all credibility in this effort if I built an unstable rig, so any overclock would have to be super stable.
