First $900 Build

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ive had my Dell 4600c for about 4 years now, i think its time for an upgrade.
ive been researching this forums to find the best build for $900.
I do alot of video editing and also im bout to do alot of gaming.
Is my setup the best for a 900 dollar budget?

Where are you getting your parts from? You can get the Q6600 at Newegg for 184.99 USD. Also that gigabyte board for 136.99 unless you live out of the US like in Canada or something . Otherwise you got yourself a good build there.

If he plans on running one card, then that board is fine. Plus it's one hell of an overclocker.
