Intel Mid-Range Built Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong section, I'm still a very fresh member here and I'm still a bit confused with the cathegory system.... anyway, I'm going to get a "~mid-range" custom PC built and I need some advices on what I've got so far etc. I wanted to make a fairly cheap gaming PC which will play today's demanding games aswell as maybe tomorrow's but also using demanding video and photo softwares.

Here is the stuff:

Case: Antec Nine Hundred
PSU: Corsair 650w
CPU: Intel Core 2 QUAD Q9300 2.5GHz
GPU: XFX GTX 260 (maybe XXX)
RAM: OCZ SLI-Ready Edition XTC DDR2 PC6400/800MHz 2x2GB
Mobo: Asus P5NT WS nForce 680i LT SLI

I didn't bother posting DVD/RW etc here since it doesn't really make any effect on the PC.

Any good?

Mini FAQ:

Q: Why don't you go with the 4870?
A: I can't explain the reasons, it's just the way it is, and no, I'm not an Nvidia fanboy.

Q: What will you be using this rig for?
A: Gaming - Crysis, Far Cry 2(when it's released) and other maybe a bit less daming games. I also commonly use heavy applications such as Photoshop and Sony Vegas.

Thanks in Advance,
Votkrath

Anyone have any good options on an AMD Mobo, preferable some nForce SLi one.

Please move this to the Intel section, changed the CPU and the Mobo.

you can get TX750W for 10-20$ more...and although it is personal I think CoolerMaster CM690 is better case...
