any tips on my build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Heres what I plan on building, if you see any fault with my build let me know. As of now I have a dual core processor picked out, not sure if I should just go for quad or what. I'm planning on spending maximum 2.5 thousand on the computer that will overclock well and be able to play directX
10 games coming out now.

What monitor will you be using?

I love my abit p35 motherboard. Was about $70 cheaper than that and I think it has most of the same features.


If your going to overclock you might as well get a cheaper CPU. And wait a few weeks till the july price cuts come around.

Then use the extra money for a GTX instead of the GTS card.

I was thinking about the SAMSUNG 226BW as its a pretty good value for how large the monitor is and lots of good reviews as well.

And yea not a bad idea I would prefer the GTX so I might wait afew weeks for price cuts.

So, how's the abit P35? Is it easy to OC?
