Help me out for late summer build

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I plan on making the step over to intel after the price drops!

I think it is most reasonable now to pick up ram as the prices may sky rocket later on. I am asking for assistance if I should either go with the Q6600 or the E6850 which I have heard very much about.

If someone could possibly assist me in picking out the best(overclockable) d9 ram with newegg links please and also a suggestion for a new motherboard, which they may drop also after the price drop? or no. Well anyways guys. Thank you for your time.

EDIT:

I would also like information about which to chose, the E6850? or the q6600. I've spent a few minutes looking at toms hardware, and the e6850 seems to be on top of everything.

If it were up to me I would go Q6600, since apps are going to be more and more multi-core enabled. The benefits would outweigh the OCablity of the revised E6800(E6850). Hope this helps!!

could be, im not sure, i figured it out..

The q6600 with DDR2 800 ram is about $10 more than the 6750 with DDR2 1066 ram. The 6750 should easily hit 3.6ghz (per anandtech) while I am only seeing the q6600 hitting 3-3.2 if your lucky.

Okay I am in the same boat as you (except my current comp sucks).
If you don't plan on upgrading for a long time, go with the Q6600, in the end, it offers the most longevity.

If you plan on upgrading in a year or two, go with the E6x50 series. They are fantastic OCers and will perform best on today's games and software apps.

I am opting for the Q6600 because I don't plan on upgrading for a while. I would like to get the X38 board, but I don't think I can wait much longer and the prices of the boards are going to put me way way overbudget (more than I am already). I am also going with DDR2 800 ram (Crucial Ballistix).

The P35 series mobo (I imagine) will drop in price after the release of X38.
