*proposed* My new System~advice please

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Alright fellow OCN members I have decided to purchase a new computer(its about time) I have waited and waited for a year now and have made up my mind.

Processor
ntel Core 2 Quad Q6600/ 2.40GHz/ 2x4MB Cache/ 1066FSB/ LGA775
http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/...ducts_id=21959

GFX
I am confused about which one should I buy... I mean there are some obvious reasons why some are cheaper(one supports PCI E 2.0 and some don't) But is there any performance boost with PCI E 2.0? help me choose one.

Cases

2.http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/...p?cPath=125_60

I am confused to which one? Should I go for one with PSU or one without PSU.

Cooling I don't know what type of cooling I would need.

or
WesternDigital

PSU

EDIT...
I missed RAM

Any good branded RAM will do. I am going for 4GB.
Keyboard/Mouse/monitor not really required already have one.

My Budget will come around 1200-1500 Dollars. I know Australia is bloody expensive place

Dont bother with the 1gb version, and just choose the cheapest 8800gt with 512mb. The factory ocs are minimal and you should have no trouble doing it yourself.

I would go with the 780i. The only difference in the 790i is that supports DDR3.

If 9600gt's are cheaper in australia, then get that instead. They scale very well in sli and they're always cheaper.

well NVIDIA claim that your RAM and your PSU need to be SLi ready. Is that bullocks or what?

Would it hurt to provide which one

8800gt is still the most solid card that NVIDIA have build even more solid than the 9800gx2(I also love the 9600gt). But really I am willing to spend 500(Sum) dollars on two cards.

Ram no, psu yes, it does matter, but there are plenty of psus that can handle sli that arent certified officially.
