Complete q6600 build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, after my last build which after my brother being the annoying *h*t he is decided it would be nice of him to clean out my case for me. I come home to find him on my bed with my case opened and a can of "dust off" next to him. Somehow, someway I really don't even want to think about how he did it, but he blew my PSU and right now im in the process of looking at a complete new build because he said it smelled like the 4th of july when it happened and we all know that isn't good. So with the loan/debt of my parents/brother I got about 700-800 bucks to mess around with and this is what im looking at.


PSU: OCZ GameXStream 600w
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341001

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059

Processor: Kentsfield q6600 (probably going to wait for Pereyn to come out to knock down price)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

RAM: G.Skill 4GB (2x2) DDR2 1066
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166

Heatsink&Fan: Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme/Scythe S-Flex 120mm
http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/therm...r-p-16580.html

Video Card: Undecided*Don't need a real powerhouse but I do play a lot of CS:S, TF2, HL2 and I like my stuff to look pretty, but I want to stay away from the 7600's and 7900's because of their "pink hue" after long gaming use.*

Hard Drive RMA'ing my Seagate since I just got it last week, thank god I have a backup external


Thanks for your input it is greatly appreciated ^_^

Everything looks great. For the video: You can get an 8800gt for 150 bucks from Newegg after MIR.

For games you'd be better off with a 45nm Duo. My suggestion would be save $100 and grab an E8200 if you're overclocking, an E8400 if you aren't.

The only problem with that is (and I forgot to mention) is that im using a Dell 2407 24" at 1920x1200 and i've read about the 8800GT's getting performance issues with higher resolutions. I think I might go with a evga 8800GTS 512 for 270 at the egg.
