Will this work???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I'm looking at building a system with overclocking in mind. Will all the following components fit and run to give me 3.2ghz.


XFX 780i
Intel Q6600
Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme
Geforce 8800 GTX XXX edition
Thermaltake 750w psu

crammed into an Antec nine hundred case.

Has anyone tried this combo and if so with what results?

Thanks

Anthony

I would ditch the 780i/GTX, and go for an X38/3870x2.
Other than that, your going to have a very nice pc, i would get a different case though, A900's are nice, but its def worth the money for a well made case.

However, if u want to stay with what you have, you should have extremely good results, and hopefully get clocked higher than 3.2, maybe around 3.6 ISH

Ditch the GTX and get a G92 GTS 512MB.

OK, well the a900, ultra 120 cooler are bits I already have. And another bummer is here in Oz, the g92 gts isnt available yet. Would 2x XFX GeForce 9600GT 512MB be better than the single g88 gtx as I'm building this system to run Flight Sim X at max. And their cheaphen 2x Ati 3870 cards.

The 780i is a triple sli board so I could add another card later.

If you want tri-SLI, it can only be with an GTX or Ultra. Only the GTX and Ultra cards come with the second SLI bridge connector on the cards circuit board.

See the 2 connectors on this 8800GTX:


Tri-SLI connector:




Here is a GTS that cannot support Tri-SLI:
