Newb on first build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay im ditching my 1st Gen Inspiron XPS to a friend for $1500.
So naturally I'm trying to break even and not spend more than that on this new rig.

So far from reading the guides and general threads on this site I've come up with:

6400 X2 3800+
Asus A8N 32-SLI-Deluxe

I need help/suggestions on ram and a Video card. I want 2gb of brand name ram but I'd like to OC to atleast 2.4 so maybe 1gb of a more stable ram.

Any suggestions on a case would be great too. If I can fit water cooling into my budget aswell I would like to try that.

Monitor/Opticals/Kboard/Mouse im not factoring into the $1500.

Alright well throw some ideas at me guys. I'm not a newb to computers I work IT but I have never built my own OC'd rig from scratch before.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
