War's $2000 Budget - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Thread Starter 
I *kinda* forgot to say that this is my first build. How would I make the 780i board work with DDR2 1066, do I just plug it in or do I have to do something within BIOS? Also, RussianGrimmReaper, I am getting the 9800GTX KO, whose stock speed is 738GHz and is about 20 dollars cheaper than the 9800GTX+. So... >

You are right on that! I reformat my computer just about every 6 months and have a NAS so I don't really think about situations like that.

Yes, I realized. Unless the 9800GTX+ can overclock like no tomorrow, I doubt I will recommend it to anyone if you can get the same thing for $20 cheaper.
