Gone intel..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright i finally decided i deserve a new computer. I already ordered the following parts.

CPU: Intel Q9450
Ram: G.Skill 4GB PC2 1066
Motherboard: Asus P5E Deluxe X48 Intel

Going to upgrade my 8800gt to a 4870 through work. I know a best buy around me that has the rocketfish cases left in stock. So i'm going to probably get one of those to hold everything, i'm not too fond of my antec.

What would you guys go with for a cpu cooler, tuniq tower or a TRUE? keep in mind i have no intent to lap anything.

if you dont plan to lap then grab a tuniq as the TRUE tends to be much better lapped

rep for the xigmatek suggestion, most of the reviews i've seen for it advertise about a 15-20 degree drop on quads.
