Building My First Gaming PC - Page 2

No problem. And to answer your previous post, I would definitely go with Windows 7. Within a couple years (and they've already started doing it), Windows XP will be phased out.

If you're looking for a gamer this build blows yours away.

x4 is a great gamer and a little faster than a q6xxx clock for clock
gtx 460 destroys the 9800 you have
samsung f3 16b is one of the fastest 7200 rpm 1tb drive there is

Great parts, although frankly, I don't like the quality of the case still. I still recommend my case.

You don't need a cooler, but if you plan to overclock sometime (which I recommend...I mean this site is dedicated to that), a dedicated cooler is defintitely something good to have.

Okay ... Lets say i get the build http://secure.newegg.ca/WishList/Pub...umber=21873868

would my geforce 9800 GT run fine with it ? or should i get the video card that the build recommends ? or is there another option where i could add an extra video card ?

I can't see your link unfortunately...didn't copy right.

If you want to save money, I guess you could run your 9800 GT. If you want some more performance, then the GTX 460 should perform far above your 9800 GT.

He linked to my build.

You COULD run your 9800gt fine in the build, however its a dated card and MUCH slower than the gtx 460

The case is cheap, but I focused on quality for the price. I don't see a better gamer for < $650 being built.

Yeah if your building it for gaming, don't skimp out on the graphics card..... The 9800 is kind of old now.

I have the same processor. There good for overclocking, I guess you could do what someone else said, and buy the 955 and just overclock it much higher, which then you would need a CPU cooler. If your not overclocking, you don't need the CPU cooler. Which in that case, I would just buy the 970 AMD Phen. II if your not going to overclock, since it's already priced low and has the highest stock clock.

Def. get a good graphics card. You don't want to build it for gaming, then put in one of the newer games, and find that your frames per second are lower than you want.
