If your going to get stuff before the price drop then this is what I'd do.

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115003

then I would get a good cpu cooler and overclock it
something like this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835154001

Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128050

GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

I've used this one many times in builds and have had fantastic results every time. Gotta love that price,too!

Sorry for the Double post.

With the setup I have below, I get about 110-160 fps on average in a 40 slot CS:S office server with full settings at 1440 x 900.

the source engine plays well on most newer computers, it even runs 20-30 fps on my sig rig(1280*1024) with out AA or HDR, any core2 generation and 8800 series will rip through it, also doesn't source work better with a better CPU then a GPU?
wouldn't be better to get one of the 6320 or 6420 an overclock seeing as the caches are the same or is the extra multiplier worth it?

Why do you want high FPS? After you get up to ~30 FPS your eyes can't tell the difference. And most LCD monitors only go up to 60 FPS on high resolutions.
If you want to play Counter Strike Source, stick with the 8600 GTS. It will work well for games in the future and will be MORE than enough for CS:Source.

The 8800 cards are (in my eyes) an unnecessary expense. My 8600 GTS plays EVERY GAME I OWN (including FEAR) on Full settings.
(2x AA at 1600 x whatever (can't see a pixel...don't need higher AA).
Ok, not FULL settings, but close enough.

I have heard that the two 8600 GTS bottleneck in SLI at high Resolutions because of their limited ram...if you REALLY want performance go ahead and upgrade yourself to a 8800 GTS 640 MB card.

After the price drop I've heard its going to be around $270 mark or so.

As for the components you need here is what I suggest.

CPU = E6600 (if you plan on buying now, or wait for the Q6600)
Mobo = Asus P5N32-E (680i chipset) if you don't mind spending what you posted or Gigabyte 965P DS3 which is a bit more on the budget side of things. Still a great board just doesn't have all the features of the other one, such as SLI capability.
GPU = 8800GTS OC 320mb or 640mb

O btw, what ram are you getting and what psu are you getting?
post #19 of 27
Definitely go with the ASUS board and the 2 GFX cards... I have never had a thing for Intel made boards. But the 2 GFX card idea is easily the best option.

I like the P5N-E SLI and also id wait for the cpu drops for intel and get the quad. For graphics I'd go with a single 8800 GTS.
