Hai Everyone

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys whats up, I've been seeing this site around for awhile and finally decided to register XD. I'm very new to anything of this nature (overclocking, building computers, selecting the correct products, etc.) so please treat me nicely =P. I know the basic facts such as what is crappy and what is not crappy and what to look for, but that is basically it. As you can see at the current time I am running a lemon of a computer, its just a stock comp with an GF8500 and an external hard drive for work. Although it is crap, it does get the job done, and I can play most of the games I want to, but that isn't enough I want the games to look the best the game and run them at a nice framerate.

I'd like some recommendations for a build under 3 grand using Intel/ Nvidia and not AMD.

Anyone know anything about the new 200 series from Nvidia? I'd like to use that GPU but I'm not sure how it is yet. It sounds nice seeing that it is 600 dollars but I don't know.

Here was my first idea for a new build:
Intel E8400 Core 2 Duo "Wolfdale" (3.0ghz)
Dual 8800 GTs "Superclocked"
EVGA nForce 750i FTW Intel Mobo
OCZ GameXStream 700W PSU
Patriot Viper 2g x 2 DDR2 PC2 RAM
Barracuda 500gb 7200rpm HD
AC Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler (I'd rather it be liquid cooling instead *recommendations please)
Thermaltake Xaser Full Tower Case (I'm not so sure about cases, etc. * recommendations please)

But again, I'd like to know more about the 200 series as well as switching to quad- core because those two items may just change the whole thing XD.

Thanks!

~Brandon

Hey, welcome to OCN. Looks good except, go with the Antec 900 case. It's one of the best ones out there. Also, go with a single Ati Radeon HD 4870, it's cheaper and gives very good performance.
