My New Gaming Build [ Need Advices ] - Page 2

post #11 of 24
in terms of pure performance, the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme would be your best bet...you linked the regular Thermalright Ultra-120. The Extreme gives better cooling performance because it has a few more heatpipes.

and now what is this the best between the OCZ Reaper, Crurial and G.Skill ??
and what the right chose for 4GB Rams
are (2 x 2GB) or (4 x 1GB) ??
post #17 of 24
get a 2x2gb kit of G.skill...my ballistix work great as well, but I've heard that the G.skills are usually better overclockers.

DO NOT GET A 650I CHIPSET FOR A QUADCORE...P6N would be a terrible decision for a quad. Try these boots on for size: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127030

if that one is a little too expensive, this would be good too: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059

I tired to chose this information and I asked a pro-gamer he gives me this gaming build but i change some of it. I decided to change my pc because I want a new upgraded gaming build. Here's the list of the parts.

Case: Gigabyte 3D Aurora
Motherboard: MSI N6P-SLI Platinum
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB)
H.D.D: Western Digital 160GB (2 x 160GB)
Graphic Card: GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 ( I have it already )

and some of another part like dvdwriter, etc..

I need an advice if this part look perplexing or some upgrade.

Hmm, stick to the pro gamer for headshot advice, trust in OCN for build advice

I assume you're keeping your 32-bit Vista Ultimate, so we'll go with 2x1GB of memory for now. I play games just fine with my 2x1GB and so does everyone else. Eventually 2x2GB might be more beneficial, but I see no reason to dump a perfectly good, already purchased version of 32-bit Vista for a $100 64-bit version and RAM that costs $70 more. Also, I assume you're overclocking. So with that in mind, here goes:

$210 - E8400 (when it is in stock again)
$130 - DFI P35 Blood Iron
$140 - XFX 9600GT (after $30 MIR)
$70 - Corsair VX550W PSU (after $15 MIR)
$29 - 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC2 6400 (after $25 MIR)
$65 - 250GB WD HDD
$26 - 20x SATA DVD Burner
$85 - CM RC-690 Case
$50 - Tuniq Tower 120
$6 - AS5 Thermal Grease
-----
$811 Subtotal (after $70 MIR)
$35 Shipping Estimate
-----
~$840-850 Total

This system will overclock to about 4.0GHz and give you about 2x the FPS in games as the other system you posted (mainly due to the improved video card). You could get an 8800GT and see a small boost (around 15% more FPS), but the price/performance ratio is strongest with the 9600GT right now, IMO. Just upgrade the video card every 1.5-2.5 years like most gamers.

hmm ok can I get P7N-SLI because i want a SLI motherboard I think i will buy if the future another vgraphic card and connect it with this graphic card, want the motherboard MSI or Gigabyte.
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L look soo good but 1 PCI Express x16 slot here the problem. And i would like to ask you what are the best nForce chipset or Intel chipset?? it seems the nForce is better am i correct ?? GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3P is this ok or not ???
