Sold my laptop!! 1300-1400 budget for new quad core! - Page 2

Don't go SLI right off the bat, bad idea.

Get 1 single 8800 GTS 512, preferable EVGA so you can step-up in 90 days. Most 8800GT's get into the 700 core range, that can be boosted by a very simple and easy BIOS flash, getting the core to 1.1 volts instead of 1.05 or 1.0.

For the PSU pick up a PC power and cool model a bit more powerful, say 75 watts.

For the RAM, go with 4gb (2x2gb modules) of G.Skill, OCZ, patriot, or Mushukin, what ever strikes your fancy at a given price point. There really is no reason to go 4x1gb modules right off the bat, it is too much of a pain in the neck.

Don't forget a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme for that CPU.

Do you need a monitor too?

They got 720 mhz. that's good.

Well, you found a better deal my friend !

I have a grudge against MSI, but oh well - its a 200$ rebate

I think you can reach a little higher with better arctic silver paste, tho!

I wouldn't believe that crap, first its from Fud, second he is using one benchmark, and a very inaccurate and poor benchmark for performance at that.

720 is pretty good, my EVGA was a stock model and a pretty crappy overclocker, it took the 1.1vmod to get to that speed. But at that speed a Duorb or Akimbo would be a very good idea, actually it is pretty much essential.

I would recommend:

From Newegg

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory $110

and add from the list above:

SATA DVD Burner: Sony NEC Optiarc Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe $30

From Zip Zoom Fly

PSU: COOLER MASTER RP-650-PCAR eXtreme Power 650W Power Supply Retail
(SLI certified, super silent)
$65

or if you need more power

PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX TX 750W Power Supply Retail $156, $120 after MIR and Free Shipping


Do you need both video cards now, or will you buy one now and get one later? Do you need an LCD, and if so what size?

b1gaple has covered all your bases there, but If you have a microcenter near you - check this thread out - http://www.overclock.net/online-deal...-218-48-a.html (ignore the newegg one, thats open box, but the microcenter deal is worth checking out)

Sorry but 1400 isnt gonna get you an SLI build, I would recomend just the single 8800GT card. It's a great card plus when are you ever really gonna need all that power. Mabie in the future but not now. If you do want SLI be able to fork over some money.

Single Card:
Q6600
P5K Deluxe
Power & PC Cooling 610W
EVGA 8800GT
X-Fi XtremeGamer
500GB HDD
Team 4GB(2x2GB)
Tuniq Tower 120
Lite-On DVD-R
Total: $1314.90
Link

Dual Card:
Q6600
P5K Deluxe
Thermaltake Toughpower 750W
2x EVGA 8800GT
X-Fi XtremeGamer
500GB HDD
Team 4GB(2x2GB)
Tuniq Tower 120
Lite-On DVD-R
Total: $1644.89

sorry for taking so long to respond I was a little busy. I thought that I would like an SLI build because I saw those new 199.90 sub-par GT cards that just came out. I guess it wouldn't be a problem for me to get an 8800 and then upgrade at a later date. As for the q6600, I have a friend who I can get that from with the g0 stepping for 200, but I'm not sure which video card to go with. Can someone give me a complete list of stuff including the 8800 within my range?

For the single card build above, I would change the P5K Deluxe for the ASUS X38 P5E.

He will aslo need the more expensive 680i/780i motherboard for the 8800GT cards, that ASUS P5K Deluxe doesnt support 2 NVIDIA cards. Or he will have to get ATI cards for Crossfire.

In the order of performance:
8800 GTX and ultra (too expensive)
8800 GTS 512Mb (G92 core) about $285
8800GT about $239
9600GT about $180
8800 GS about $149

The ATI 3870 is $199 and is between the 8800GT and the 9600GT.
