Ordering parts this week, tell me what you think

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, as soon as this months payment posts, I'll be ordering a few items.

so far I have it narrowed down to the following:

DFI LP UT nF4 Ultra-D 939 mobo
The proactive support for these products makes this one a no-brainer really

AMD Opteron 148 Venus OEM
This one has been giving me a headache, Athlon 3700 SD a better choice?

XFX GeForce 7800GTX
I jumped Nvidia ship to get my x850pro, I like Nvidia color performance, however ATI seems to have better driver support / OC potential

2 WD Caviar 16MB Cache Sata 3.0 HD was 2 samsung spinpoint sata 3.0 250G
hopefully I can get a Raid x0 setup running.

any input would be most appreciated.

I've never been a fan of samsung hdd's or optical drives. Never had a western digital hdd fail on me. Plus the WD has a 16m cache.

I'd say that this looks pretty good, all chosen items are quality parts. I was looking at buying an Opteron 148 or 3700 SanDiego (before I bought the 165 for dual core) and I think I was leaning towards the 3700 because I could get it for a little cheaper. Both seem to be great overclockers, so either is good.

Thanks busa, you have some very valid points there, as a matter of fact I own an IDE WD caviar drive that I have been running for years still in my current rig.
(I had a 450Mb drive arrive DOA once many moons ago and it left a bad taste in my mouth I suppose.)
that extra cache will come in handy.

Got everything on the list plus a little fan controller (Highly recommended by the folks over at DFI-Street.)

I wasn't able to get an Opty so I Opted for the E6 Stepping Sandy.

Stuff will be in next week, wish me luck!!!
