~4k system for friend - Page 3

post #21 of 38
i gotta say that sound card is seriously overpriced. put it side by side with this Omega in a blind taste test and i'd be curious to see how many people actually pick a SB over this one that costs less than half as much.

hey guys. this is the friend whos comp this build is about. Hello overclock.net . Lt.JD has been asking me to get on these forums for sometime now and since you guys are talking about the build he made me and i looked at, i figured what the hell might as well come on here.

Now i know that the build thats up here contains 4 gigs of ram each with 1 gig, but the ram he picked out seems awesome and was rated really high in reviews. But i do see what you saying by trying to just get 2x 2GB sticks.

Also, how much more expensive is DDR3 than what i have?

I wanted to add that this build is mainly to play the latest and greatest of games, such as Crysis when it comes out. So yes this is going to be a DX 10 comp. That is basically the only thing. If i could, i would want to do some sort of a case mod but ill need to work on ideas for it.

DDR3 runs faster than DDR2, but it's a brand new technology and costs a small fortune. i personally don't think it's worth it to buy DDR3 yet. you'll get a slight performance inrease for a lot more money. i think DDR2 is still the best way to go.

as far as memory configuration, 2x2 GB kits cost more and have higher latencies than 2(2x1GB) kits. i would personally buy 2 kits of 2x1.

$4,000 can go pretty quick when you start building a high end gaming PC. saving money where you can means you don't have to cut corners elsewhere.

right on mrbungle. I was looking on newegg at DDR3 and for the specs on the RAM that i was seeing wasnt worth spending all that money for them.

as im seeing now, i have this $2100 PC that was kind of high end like 1 years ago and now this $4000 PC is going pretty quick as im picking parts.

DDR2 D9's, Vista, no monitor, nice case, Q6600

That MB is temporary SLi.

It should hold you over till the darn x38 SLi comes out.

That HSF will last you ages.

I hope you have AS5.. If not just add that when the Q6600 drops to regular price. Newegg is over charging..

Under 4k, you can add AS5 if you don't have..
