New System

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have a friend who is in need of a new system. He needs: Processor, Motherboard, Ram, Video Card, Hard Drives, Case, Fans, a CPU Cooler, and Fan Controllers. I'm thinking of getting him the following:

-Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler
--
$60

-2 Black Vantec Fan Controllers
~~
$30
-PC Power & Cooling 750-Silencer
--
$200

-2x1GB of G. Skill DDR2-800 HZ Ram
~~
$100
-Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor
--
$300

-Cooler Master Stacker 832 ATX Case
~~
$200
-2x320GB Seagate 7200.10's in Raid-0
--
$150

-Asus P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP Motherboard
~~
$200
-eVGA e-GeForce 8800GTX Graphics Card
--
$600

-6 Thermaltake Thunderblade 120mm Fans
~~
$100


I will be getting him the Quad Core after price drops (July 22nd) and that will only cost him $2,000. He plays a lot of games on his 19" Sidescreen Display so a good graphics card is neccesary, espeically with demanding DirectX 10 games, like Crysis, coming out soon. He will be using Windows: Vista - Ultimate; which he already has.

The drive also offered very good game play performance and was able to make a strong showing in the general business application benchmarks. If you are looking for a drive that offers slightly better overall performance and excels in most desktop and multimedia applications while offering competitive acoustics then the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB drive should be at the top of your list.

So, should I change anything?

I'm not talking about Fans or the Case, I'm talking about components. My friend picked the "extras" himself; I decided on the Processor, Motherboard, Ram, Graphics Card, Hard Drives, and Power Supply.
