Ordering My Computer

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay, so, I am finalizing my build. I am looking at getting:

-Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler for $60 at Newegg
-2x1GB of G. Skill DDR2-800 HZ Ram for $130 at Newegg
-Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor for $300 at Tankguys
-Asus P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP Motherboard for $225 at Newegg

I will be ordering these parts (excluding the processor) on Friday and will have everything here by Tuesday, hopefully. The Q6600 G0 will be on shelves by August, so I should recieve mine within the first week of August. I will post a build log soon.

Should I change anything before I order my system?

Hmm.......why not a P5K-Deluxe, better chipset all around, north and south bridges.

And the P35 is a better overclocker for Q6600s, proven by lots of people at XS and here.

Changed my mind, getting a P35 Motherboard.

Regarding DirectX 10, even an 8800GTX runs poorly (we are talking about 30FPS with a Conroe) in DirectX 10 Applications, so, I'm probably going to wait until the 9-Series and HD 2950's come out. I want to get a really good DirectX 10 that will last me, just like my GTX has. Probably the 9-Series Flagship; after the fix any problems and smooth out drivers.

If you arent going to OC why are you waiting for the new stepping? And you dont need expensive ram if you arent going to OC...... just get corsair with tight timings.

The RAM seems quite cheap for what it does, and the G0 stepping Q6600's are supposed to run a bunch cooler and with lower power than the current one's.

Exactly, mentholmoose.

The G0 Q6600's require less power, this means less heat, meaning a cooler processor. Also, my ram is amazingly priced for what I get. I could probably push for 3-3-3-8 at DDR2-800 and it only costs $130. Plus, it comes with great Micron D9MGH Chips.

D9s are for overclocking and you are not OCing. D9s need more volts then promos so you would be better off.. And I cant see why you would be worried about temps on your CPU if you arent OCing, just drop the volts. On stock FSB on conroes you can drop the volts wayyyy low.

Save some money with these

For super tight timings I'll need good chips, maybe CAS 2 is possible with 2.2v.

Oh, and, I'm going with the Asus P5K Deluxe/WiFi-AP.

Not, it's the other way around. I have the D9GMH in my HZs and (hand-picked) PROMOS in my HKs and the HKs need the extra voltage in order to run at the same speed as the D9GMH at 1Kmhz. 2.25v VS 2.30v.

Have not had any issues with either of my memory modules but overall, the D9GMH kit is better for overclocking.
