First Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Working on my first build and need some advice. I have a case already, Lian Li PC-9F, XFi Card out of my other computer and a fresh copy of Window's 7 and I'm looking to fill it up to do some decent gaming and dabble in some beginners overclocking. I'm looking to spend $1,000 - $1,250.

Everything is from Newegg. I'm choosing the one ssd drive as i have a couple of external harddrives around the house and I only plan to have the OS, MS Office, and a game or two at any time on that drive. Eventually I'd like to go SLI after the new year. Thanks again for your help and advice.

Ya he right, I would wait but if you can't it looks pretty solid.

... well that sounds like nvidia being unable to price their products accordingly, ati is going to have to do the same thing probably with the 6 series, but at least that is because of a new generation.

I'm very much wanting to move forward as with technology, every day brings a new change, Thanks again for taking the time to take a gander at my set-up.

how do you take advantage of the quad channel ram on a board designed for triple channel?

I think this would be better... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-121-_-Product

EDIT: Skip the artic silver 5! The TIM on the H50 is Shin Etsu, and will perform as good if not better!
Also skip the superclocked version of the 460. You can get better clocks for free...
