Choice Build, Can it be cheaper? Help! :D Thanks! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
My long term goal for the pc isn't gaming, though that's a side bonus.

My primary goal is video/audio editing, eventually 4-8gb's of ram (if possible if I switch over to vista when they debug it... in a year or 2).

Also, i'll have base 2x 320gb drives, and throw in 4x 750gb or more drives.

I might toss in a second pci-e card for dual LCD 22" display's for work management over time. Though that's another year down the road at least.

Keyboard i'm currently fine with, and fan's, I would rather have new fan's over used/*maybe not used" ebay editions.

I chose the p182 case because I have the p180b for my cely pc, and it's amazing.

Ram, definately thinking G-skill, and tonight I may re-update the build with other idea's.

The mobo suggestion for the ds3 mobo. Good idea, but memoryexpress doesn't have it .

I'd rather get all my parts @ the same place, and not have to "send" my parts to other companies to get them fixed, rather have one central place for repairs for all. (hence warrenty).

I have a 5 year warrenty on my gateway, i'm into it by about 3.5-4 years. And just after the 3 year mark hit, a diode or whatever fried and made the system non bootable... So yeah, that was fun, worth it to get a 5year warrenty.

I'm also looking at this pc as a mega build for long term work for at least a life time of 3-4 years prior to a "new" pc, but build this one so I can easily upgrade it in the future as required.

You said the key phrase. If you want to keep it as it is with no upgrading then either wait a month for quad to come out or buy a celeron d and build it now and as soon as its out switch the CPU with a quad. I have nothing else to say. XD

Yeah, ha! A celeron D, funny! I had a 478 cely D 3.2 in my current pc for quite some time, till a diode decided that frying it was just a wonderful thing...

Will repost here my updated spec's with adjusted prices, on my next post, (rather then first, and a ref to which post # will be placed on first page).

Le_Loup

Any more suggestions, should I stick with dx10 based cards, or go with dx9 FOR now, and then get a DX 10 down the road for my PRIMARY pci-e slot, and switch the dx 9 card to the "second" pci-e for alternate monitor's? (I'm a multimon "ultramon" kinda guy)

Ok, looking over, i'll toss in a wimpy cely, lol. Expensive keychain piece..... ^_^

And G-Skill we don't have at memory express, and I don't think they can order it... But i'll ask them though!

I chose a seagate 320 over a WD 320, because it's $20 cheaper (save what I can I guess).


Instead of the 8800GTS, 320mb, I went with the 8600 GT, 256mb. Rather because I'm going to see a performance gain period when I first load the pc... Guarenteed... Because... hey, i'm on a cely 2.4 northwood, for goodness sakes i'm going to see a frame rate gain in any game I have, and call it stable....


Now below is WITHOUT the warrenty, which for 1000-1500 for a price of a pc, is an 89.95 warrenty (IPR = instant product replacement ).

Forget tripple post,

Was on "upgrade the computer above you"

Someone suggested the

Asus P5N-E SLI w/ DualDDR2 800, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, 1394, Dual PCI-E x16 SLI 159.95

Over my choice of,

Asus P5B Premium Vista Edition w/ DualDDR2 800, 7.1 Audio, Dual GB Lan, SATA II, 1394, PCI-E x16 1 269.95

Between the two, I know my first choice had the 2nd lan, 1 more Sata (internal), and a single IDE channel (require myself actually).

The diff between the SLI and the Premium, is that the Prem = 16x + 2-4x, vs the SLI = 16x or 8x/8x. (Which i'd rather do the sli board, but I need a board with a single IDE and preferably 6 Sata, usb/firewire functional is optional as to how many, I can get hubs...).

Idea's anyone on better boards/overall cost effective to start + upgrades over a year or 2 to do better?

Thanks,

Le_Loup
