Would love some input if you all care to share.
There is room in my budget for upgrades you think I am missing of decent value.
I want to be able to run dual boot XP/Vista (Vista for DX10 games...) as well, and everything here seems to be Vista capable... I am going to check the official Vista hardware list after I post here heheh
CPU - E6600 retail ( I like the retail warranty )
RAM - OCZ 2GB dual channel kit, EPP, 1000MHz ( I currently own a Kingston dual channel 2GB 666Mhz kit and would prefer to use that to save money, possible? Worth doing?)
Mobo - EVGA 122-CK-NF63-TR I have heard of problems with these boards but if I buy from the linked source I have 30 days to return it no questions asked so I am willing to chance trying it out.
Video - EVGA 8800GTX 768MB (standard clock, are the overclocked ones worth the difference?)
HDD - Seagate 320GB 16MB perpendicular x 2 ( I own these already )
DVD - Lite-On 20x SATA DVD burner (supports all formats)
Sound - Creative Labs SoundBlaster X-Fi extreme audio
Case - Antec 900 (already own this case)
PSU - Ultra 700w Modular (Hoping it will provide enough power for a 2nd video card in the future should I need to do that)
If anyone can suggest a decent, gaming 22 Inch widescreen LCD monitor that will let me watch HD videos in the future ( Do I need HDCP? I don't understand the HD requirements well )
Right now I am leaning towards this Samsung model. My office is generally free of direct sunlight if that helps ...
