What do you think of these components

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking to upgrade my system,

For the new board, I was looking at this

I was also looking at this memory

Also will a 620w PSU be okay for the SLI setup.

Any reason why you want to go DDR3? It's highly overpriced for no real performance gain with the current generations of CPUs. I'd upgrade, but keep it DDR2 and only get DDR3 when it really makes a difference at which time DDR3 will be MUCH cheaper.

The 620W Corsair is a good PSU, but you'll be pushing it when you run two 8800GTX's in SLI.

Thus, I'd recommend something like this:
EVGA nForce 780i SLI nForce 780i (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (132-CK-NF78-A1) £182.11
OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-9200C5 1150MHz Flex II Passive/WaterCooled Dual Channel DDR2 (OCZ2FXT11504GK) £99.86
Corsair TX 750W ATX2.2 SLI Compliant PSU £82.24
Total: £364.21, which is £276.13 cheaper than your picks without a real difference in performance.

woah..... thanks have just saved a lot of money! I will be able to spend the rest on the new Nvidia cards coming out!

Is that ram one of the best DDR2 modules?

I agree with Chozart 100% on DDR3 ram. besides, OCZ are not playing nice with the 790i. I would recommend the eVGA 750i FTW:

Here is a great review showing it running a 470 FSB with a quad core:
Xtremesystems.org

These boards run a 500 FSB easily with dual cores:

Very Good Results , specially the excellent Latency = 47.2ns !!



Special thnks to EVGA for the Sample !

Seems like the EVGA 750i motherboard also performs very well with Quad-core processors !!

470 FSB with Quad-core is really awesome!
