My first build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello, fellow overclockers. This will be my first build (Unless you count a computer I took apart then put back together.)

Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Four cores are better then one.

ASUS P5N-E SLI - I've heard a lot of good this about this mobo, SLI is a plus.

2GB of Corsair XMS2 - Fast(ish) Memory for my Vista Ultimate

Raidmax Smilodon case - Great looking case with good airflow.

Corsair CMPSU-620HX 620W Power supply - I'm gonna need it for my.....

GeForce 8800 Ultra - I'm gonna need it for Crysis

Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200 RPM SATA HDD - It's big and, fast, but not to loud.

Tuniq tower - Hoping to get the Q6600 to 3Ghz with this

Samsung 226BW 22" Widescreen LCD - With its 2ms response time, gaming will be great.

It'll cost about $2012 CND with all that and the keyboard and mouse. (+Tax)
Sadly, I won't have the money till late October, but it's worth it, all my life I've been stuck with Celerons. The computer in my signature is the best I've owned.

And can anyone confirm if the Ultra will fit in the RaidMax Smildon? Thanks!

Hi there. The Ultra should fit in that case. Also you might be better off getting an 8800GTX and overclocking it to the speeds of an Ultra. Everything else in your system looks great!

I was thinking of getting the GTX and overclocking it but I heard there was a problem with it going back to default after I restart, and I don't like having programs start up at well, Start up. And the Ultra I'm getting is isn't even $100 more then the GTX I was getting.

Easy way is to flash the bios of the GTX, once you over clocked it that is and its stable No more issues then. Just backup your orignal bios first just incase.

Consider getting LG L226WTX-BN instead of the 226BW, specs are the same but LG has noticeably wider viewing angles. (170 vs 160)

Those are really good choices, however I'd pick a better styled case, and a more powerful PSU

otherwise, awesome!

No-one has suggested a P35 mobo yet! Shocking!

Hey i know it may be annoying but insted of flashing the bios or spendin the extra money on an ultra it only takes about 30seconds to reclock the gpu. I do it cause like you i dont like things at start up. And heck if i forget to oc it again after restart it still eats anything i throw at it lol. I would save the money especialy since it wont be to long before its dwarfed by a younger sibling.

I already decided to get the GTX But if those rumors about the 9800 GTX are true, I may postpone my build to it comes out.
