E8400 Build - comments p

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My Asus A8N-SLI Premium + 3200 amd and 6600 gt gave out, well first the 6600gt started artifacting then the A8N will not post. So it's time update.
I would be keeping my OCZ 520 power supply.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 ( Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro )

Gigabyte P35-DS3L

2GB OCZ Platinum PC2 6400 ( not sure what else to pick)

XFX 8800 GT Alpha Dog Edition ( Have it now)


I'm about to order this and just looking for some comments.

From what I have found the E8400 should run on the P35 out of the box.

Thanks

Sounds like a pretty good setup to me, although I would go with this G.Skill Memory instead. Are you sure that PSU will have a sufficient amount of power?

Looks good. I have no luck on OCZ ram as I tried so many times but it may be just my case.

I noticed the PC2-8500 is 2.2 v

Wonder if it will work with the Gigabyte P35-DS3L
