Asus P5N-E SLI nForce® 650i SLI Chipset
2048MB [1024MB X2] DDR2-800 PC6400 Corsair XMS2 Xtreme w/Heat Spreader
Nvidia Geforce 8800GTX 768MB
200 GB HARD DRIVE [Serial-ATA-II, 3Gb, 7200 RPM, 8M Cache]
And now I can't decide which processor to put in it, the Q6600 or the E8650 (I didn't put a power supply cause it would obviously vary based on what processor I choose). This computer is 100% strictly for gaming, I plan on playing games like Crysis. I read that Crysis utilizes Quad-core systems, but is the difference really noticeable? Also, will this computer be able to run new directx10 games in max graphics? That's really what I'm looking for, I want a computer that will let me max out the graphics in every game I play. If there are any hardware suggestions please post.
I plan on making this computer last me for a long time. I know Quad-core will be more integrable in the future, but I'm kind of leaning towards the E8650 because it can be over clocked quite a bit for literally a 3rd of the power needed to over clock the Q6600.
