How's this build?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for something, pretty.. future-proof. Budget is around $900-$1000. I'm in canada so no newegg prices please. Thanks.

I don't want to get DDR2/DDR3/1333FSB motherboards since I upgrade 2-4years, I'm sure there will be better motherboards until then.. I will get a 965 motherboard. Good choice?

Anyways on to my build. I work more than I play so I don't need a powerful GPU.

Also should I get Q6600 or E6xxx, July 22nd, since I as I said above, I upgrade 2-4years. Thanks.

That looks pretty good. I would make getting a new power supply a top priority after you build that. Other than that it is quite a build for that money. I spent like 870(USD) on my rig last fall.

If you plan on sticking around you should fill out your rig specs in your user cp.

Alright thanks, but what about the future-proof question I had and my Q6600 vs E6xxx?

Edit: Might get the Coolermaster 534, is it a good case also? Thanks
