I want to spend around $1100-1500.

I am kind of nervous right now about building my own PC
I'm on it. I'll post my recommendations soon. Please allow me a few minutes. Thanks.

Would this be for everything (MoBo, CPU, Memory, HSF, Video Card, HDD, Optical drives, Case, PSU, Keyboard, Mouse, monitor and OS)?

A good temp monitoring program would be CoreTemp, Speedfan, or HWMonitor.
Alot of q6600s hit 3600 and you dont need water with the G0 mine folds at 51-52c on a tuniq tower.



legendor Dells cant overclock best you could do is buy a new motherboard and case and put your old stuff in it.

Any suggestions are fine. I don't need $Nine Trillion comps but around $1100-1500 total. If this price is not possible for such system, I can only stretch to $1600.

P.S. Things I do NOT need are:
mouse
keyboard(already have logitech)
extreme sound drives
speakers
CD/DVD drives
USB sockets(I can use some of these kind of equipments from my old gateway system).

Also contrast the advantage of Vista vs XP. Some people say Vista shouldn't even been released.
Thanks A lot guys

I kinda researched that OC in OEM comps are virtually impossible because the adminstrator can't access to the settings or something.

First Question is : Are all OEM(DELL) comps really impossible to OC like user-build system? If the answer is yes(not possible), you can ignore the rest of my posts.

Here is my specs.

Intel Core2 processor Q6600 (2.40Ghz, 1066FSB) 8MB Cache
4GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
500GB NCQ Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200 RPM) w/ 16MB databursh cache
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit
Power- Probably 240 Voltage because it's OEM comp
Cooling - Don't know, probably standard one, but you can guestimate because its profile because my comp is OEM(DELL).


I know my power and cooler equipments are too weak. All i want is not extreme OC, but wanna take baby steps. From reading the forums, I think OCing to 3.2 Ghz comfortable spot for now.
Here are more questions.

1. Can I OC to 3.2 GHz comfortably without upgrading anything? If yes, skip to #2.
a) What is the range of voltage required to OC to 3.2 GHz?
b) What is the estimated temperature if I OC to 3.2 Ghz?
c) Can you suggest me the best fit temp cooler? I think some air cooler would be fine.

2. Is OCing to 3.2 MUCH more damage than 3.4? In another words, Is the dmg from 3.4 oc noticible than oc in 3.2?
I have a E521 as my backup system so I know a little.

Here's your manual:
http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1057811

-your cpu cannot be o'cd
-which psu did you get? 375w or 425w
quads would come with the 425w (if you ordered it)
-the 375w psu has 30amps and 375 continous watts (not peak)

What I would do if you desire is upgrade from the 8800GT and o'c it.
Dual-slot 9800 would be a good fit.

Hope this clears some mis-imformation up from people that don't know

I just helped my friend ordered a quad core system for 850$.. that's without the monitor..

[not the best, but can still overclock and run your system]
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128084
[have this mobo on my brothers rig, runs great, but high Vdroop]

Case is up to you.. and same with your operating system.
Newegg does not charge tax, but charges shipping fee.
They also have great deals.

CPU heatsink.. its 43$... my friend have his, it got his quad to 3.2 ghz with 62 celcius load

EDIT, the price here isn only 775. not 850 (im missing CD drives and ur case... also operating system if you don't have one.). thats another total of 200$

So yeah, since you cannot overclock in the first place...
