Your Thought On My Build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600
Mobo : XFX nForce 790i Ultra SLI
RAM : OCZ 2GB DDR3 PC3-14400C8 1800MHz Platinum
Graphics Card : XFX GeForce GTX280 1GB PCIE DUAL DVI DDR3 602/2.2GHz
Hard Drive : 550GB Hard Drive from old pc
CPU Cooling : Zalman CNPS9700NT
Optical Drive : Samsung SH-S223F/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA Dual Layer ReWriter
Case : Antec Twelve Hundred
PSU : Corsair TX 750W ATX2.2 SLI Compliant PSU

That's it but im not sure on PSU because i may go SLI in the future and that PSU wouldnt handle 2x XFX GeForce GTX280. Any Suggestions on PSU's? And your thoughts on this build.

Thanks
:)

I think that's a nice high end computer. If you plan on getting Vista then you should get more memory.

If you plan on OC'ing, stay away from the Q6600, the latest batch haven't been bumping as well as they usually do, so if you want a cheap quad you're going to have to get the Q6700, or you can get the E8400 or somesuch in the Wolfdale family and OC to 4.0GHz in a breeze, not to mention be more efficient with gaming. Games at this point are just not completely multi-threaded for quads, so half your CPU will be sitting on its thumbs, doing absolutely nothing.
