Need Opinions on New Intel Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm starting to get jealous of all the good hardware out there and i need another computer so I've made the decision to build a new one.

This will be my first Intel build.

This is what i have so far:

CPU - Q6600 or Q9450
Mobo - P35 chipset or X38, for the brand i was thinking Asus or MAYBE DFI
GPU - Atleast G92 - I was thinking 9800GTX
RAM - 2x2GB G.Skill DDR1000 PQ's
HDD - Raptor 150GB <- How noisy is it? or 500gb Seagate
PSU - 620HX
Case - Antec 900

Trying to keep it under 1.2K

Thanks

The 9800's price tag will probably put you over and from what I've seen its not worth it. I have heard dfi blood iron is a great p35. Also what will you be using for cpu cooling? Your big typhoon?

You might not want to go X38. P35 is good enough for overclocking, and the extra features from X38 aren't so noticeable. Save yourself some money, and get a sound card. Or something.

The raptor is not quiet by any means..but the noise does not bother me. It is definitley louder then a 7200 drive.
