I want to build a new system, however i am a taurus and we are known to be fussy with everything we do.
I do not like seagate [some might tell me 'they the best'] etc etc yada yada i do not want seagate. I am a WD fan
I like AMD but my senses tell me Intel is killing them at the moment with Dual and Quad core
Now, besides all that nonsense, i have a budget but i am willing to stretch it a bit...
I know you supposed to follow a budget but i would like a few suggestions of a reliable pc that i can overclock and later add more ram and maybe a 2nd gfx card [if SLI/Crossfire is worth it] I am not looking for a monster PC coz i aint got cash for that. Aynyone can build a good PC with money. So, here is an article i read in the PC Format SA issue a while back
They have the following to report:
CPU : Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 [They overclocked it to 2.86Ghz and temp was @ 27degrees celcius with a Zalman Fatal1ty cooler]
Board : Asus P5W DH Deluxe or Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 or Intel D975XBX [Personally i prefer the Asus]
And that's basically all the article says, nothing much but it looks so good, not so?
Now i ran into a problem, i have to use a ATI gfx card, hmmm... I wonder, do i have to use a ATI card? I don't swing either way when it comes to gfx cards, but yet again i want a good stable card not something that seems to break after a while etc.
ssooo.... anybody feel up to the challenge of giving me some place i can go look at custom builds that have been tested or something?
