Greets to all!! Peace and Love

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just introducing myself, I have been out of the computer world for a long long time travelling and such.... I had decided to build myself a new SLI rig.
(As my supposedly fantastic XPS Dell is a heap of junk)
When I realised, that I havent a clue what Im doing.
Which led me to OVERCLOCK.net. where I have already started folding for the team 37726
and I hope to learn how to put together a decent gaming Rig. and overclock the bejesus out of it.

So far Ive started to put together a list of stuff I think will be good for my potential SPEEDDEMON.
please let me know what you think.... and any advice on parts would be much appreciated.

CPU: Im leaning towards a CORE DUO E6600 (for budget overclocking)

MB: still umming and ahhing about this but I think a Gigabyte 965P-DS3P is the way I will go.(for budget overclocking ) although I am unsure on one thing in this case... it says it has 2xPCI express 16 slots, but I think one of them is actually only a 4x.... if this is the case, will I have any issues with duel NVIDIA GPUs??? will I still be able to SLI?
I was thinking about the MSI P6N diamond or the STRIKER... but... theyre really expensive...

GPU: i was thinking of 2x MSI NX8600GT-T2D256E-OC (not that I actually know anything about them... ) any recommendations for similar priced GPUs would be appreciated.

RAM: Pulsar DCDDR2-2GB-800 (DDR2 PC2-6400 1GBx2) once again something I know very little about.

Rest is fairly standard fare: Antec 900 case, NeoHE550 for PSU, ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AT (cause I think it just looks cooler than the NOCTUA which reminds of an office building.) and a Western Digital WD5000AAKS (500G SATA300 7200)

Once again, hello to all... and good luck to me on building an awesome machine.

peace
