I HAVE NO PICS! BECAUSE I HAVE NO COMPONENTS YET!

I am going to put my order in on Monday I think. Might have to wait till Tues, or next month due to the chance I will be looking for another apartment all of a sudden.


Oh yeah, I still have to pick out ram.

The RAM:
the reason I took the lesser known DS3R over the wildly loved cheaper DS3L is because the R has a higher DDR support: "Support for DDR2 1200 (O.C.)/1066/800/667 MHz memory modules".

Meaning 1066 MHz? I am not entirely sure what this means. The DS3L has "Supports DDR2 1066*/800/667memory" which really means 800MHz, I think. the asterisk says 1066 with OCing.

DS3R = 1066, and
DS3L = 800
so I am thinking going with the faster RAM board will help with my OCing, and just be faster RAM.

Both DDR2 1066 and 800 RAMs come with another speed, like PC 8500. I don't understand these two speeds, why is there two. Still researching.

DDR2 1066 should run at 1066

I see, these two numbers (eg. DDR2 1066, and PC8500) are tied. DDR2 1066 has a speed of 1066 MHz and has a bandwidth of 8500 MB/s.

DDR2 800MHz has a bandwidth of 6200 MB/s.

DDR2 667 *8 = PC 5300

Which means, with this board ready for 1066MHz (and ready for 1200MHz with OCing, whatever that means) I should be buying DDR@ 1066 which will have a bandwidth of 8500MB/s. It got a lot simpler for me just now.

here's the 1200 mhz OC thing..








But don't be fooled by the big leap: it's still only a tiny amount of points and 1-2 fps in game. However most of the time the Reaper tend to have superior performance. (which is, like a i said, just a little bit better).

There you go for the DS3L vs DS3R


Quote:
Re: GA - P35 - DS3L vs. GA - EP35 - DS3R

The DS3R is raid capable and the "E" is refering to the feature "dynamic energy saver" and It is definately compatible with E8400 out of the box.

you can read about that here http://www.giga-byte.com/FileList/We...des-des-01.htm

google it for other sources of info.

I got the one without the "E"(GA-P35-DS3R) rev 2.1. Should work with the E8400, will see tomorrow when it arrives.

I've been busy with work last few days, time to update my first post on what I think I will be getting.

And wow, I've done so much reading the last while. I needed to learn way more than I thought I would have to in order to make educated decisions on the parts I need.

I'll go work on that post#1 update now..


5 mins later:
oh great... NCIX has changed the prices on half of the things I had picked out. My plans are screwed, I give up for now. I'll do this up in a couple days.


a few hours later:
I went and looked at the gear I picked out, had to change some because of pricing changes, one thing went out of stock, made up my mind on the ram finally, and spent an hour updating post #1.

I can't believe I am going to spend 200 bucks on a motherboard. I hope it makes sense.

I can tell yah, I am getting excited about this, I will be able to put the order in wed this week (april 16/08). I wonder how long UPS will take to get it here (they are charging 23 dollars from Vancouver to Victoria, supposedly 1-6 days to ship).

NVidia chipset + 4 RAM modules at 1066 + SLI = you may have problems. Also remember, in a year, the 8800GT is going to be completely out of date. SLI also can only scale 50-60% while CrossFire scales 70-95% depending on the game. Instead of getting an SLI board and wasting money on a second card, get one good card and leave it at that! What resolution will you be running at by the way? If it's anything less than 1440x900, your video card sits and does just about nothing, it's all cpu based at lower resolutions.
