I wish I can do that, but I'm trying to work with what I have. College Student, paying for my own *****, insurance, GAS... etc, I can write a whole essay about it.

But I haven't had an opportunity to anything with such a great processor like this so i want to keep it. (though I wish I had $$$ to build what i truly want) Any other ideas then? (ps. throw out any ideas of DDR3, just because it such a waste of money since the processor can't even clock at such a high speed) (+i'm still between the X38 vs X48 also. no SLI for me so none of the 7 series boards)

I would advise you to keep it too dude and save up and gradually add good components to go with it. Start with a good mobo and RAM and go your way up! Enjoy your beast man!

qft. although, i think that it's also rude to be ignoring the OP's request in the thread.

now, the first question for intekmdma would be how much you are willing to spend. after you specify that, we can help you make a decision as to what parts would be best for your price range. looking at what you chose, though, I would say that you have already done SOME research as to what you can afford and what is best for price/performance. If you don't mind spending a little bit more you can probably find an 8800GTS G92 for close to the same price as an 8800GT.

As for the MoBo, I dont have any personal experience with that specific board but others may have suggestions. IF you aren't looking for an extreme overclock, though, most mATX boards should suffice, just don't go for the least expensive one out there as you are more likely to have problems with even a slight overclock and it wouldn't be worth the trouble to save a few bucks.

If you let me know a price range then I can probably help you out a little better. Hope I was of more help than others who have been posting in this thread.

if you have a budget and a list of things you need i'll make you a list of parts

Very well, whats your budget for the other parts?
And please, get a proper OC mainboard, it would be a shame not OCing that CPU like mad

EDIT: Woop-tie-doo I type slow...

Thanks for the feedback. Actually the ASUS micro ATX board is the most expensive micro ATX board there is. The reason I chose to go the micro ATX route, was because I would not build an EXTREME system with the processor i have. I don't want to build weak parts around a good processor, so I guess I decided to use the 'excuse' of building a micro ATX which will help with mobility instead.

As far as the video card, I looked over the 'graphics card list' in the other sub-forum (i've been on here for a long time, just never decided to register/post) and i thought the 8800GT was the best (though it seems more like a retail market card) If the GTS is better, then I will shell out the money to get it.

As for $$$, technically, I can put everything on the credit card and pay it off later, but I would like to limit my budget just so I can use that money for my graduate education later on instead. Lets just say I would say just any other typical person would say... "the best bang for your buck"

.. Keep an eye on the Freebie section... That CPU is nice, built a computer for a friend with that chip. Definitely a waste of money tho... My advice is this.. If someone bought you a chip that expensive, they should have just bought you a working computer... or a laptop(+ College is a must).

So, by the look of it.. it shows that they either don't know crap about computers and just looked for the highest price tag or Completely underestimated your budget situation or you really bought it for yourself because you like having the best, like I did at the time I built mine. If your "buyer" seriously gave it to you and just doesn't know computer parts, they will never know you sold it for money for a better build... If they do know computers, I would find it insulting... to receive the chip in your situation and sell it just to pay for school.

I would laugh and die at the same time to see Extreme QUAD in a Microatx Lan-box, I think... it would melt away.. cuz a cooler to cool that beast for a budget price would be bigger than the board it is on.

Add: the GTS as a amazing card

BTW: thanks microman for the critisizm, and everyone else for the feedback. I would ABSOLUTELY love a great overclocking board. I originally started off with my 486DX2 overclocking it to a couple extra mhz over 50.... but as far as the motherboard... I want to stay near $200, + or - $40, GPU is $200 + or - $40, and memory $150. The case, hdd, and other stuff will be funded by my G/F (hopefully) or... I'll need to sell my old fish tank equipment for it

This gift wasn't purchased... lets keep the price of the CPU out of the question though i know it is expensive. Lets say, it was directly from Intel. (no it's not stolen)

p.s. i like your icon =)
