and i am also buying everything on monday so some fast review would greatly be appreciated =X.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor
I heard this could overclock to 3 ghz - 3.2 ghz
haven't tried overclocking but learning is always nice =].
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor
i heard this could overclock to 3.5 ghz not like you need to overclock it any faster lol.
This was my first choice as i don't know anything about overclocking and 3.2 ghz seems good enuf for me.
Both come with Rosewill RX950-S-B ATX 12V v2.2 & EPS 12V v2.91 950W Power Supply 100 - 240 V TUV, FCC, UL, CE, ROHS
for around $120. orginally is it $220 but $100 discount when bought with the processors.
ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
nice price compared to the P5K3 Deluxe.
ABIT IN9 32X-MAX LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
$129.99 after $100 rebate
ASUS P5K3 DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
A bit pricey ='( otherwise i'd get this.
Foxconn C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Either one of these two unless someone has a suggestion.
XFX PVT80FSHE9 GeForce 8800GTX Extreme 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
$439.99 after rebate
kinda expensive =X but my friend said it was good
my other choice
2x MSI GeForce 8800 GT 512MB PCI-e Video Card
$208 each = $408
around same price as single 8800 gtx but do i really need 2?
4 x 1 gb
2x OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
around $80 for 4 gibs.
500 gb SATA haven't decided where to buy yet.
Last but not least the case to put it all in.
COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 Evolution RC-830-KKN2-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
$139.99 after rebate
I heard that the intel quad 6600 stocks were good enough.
but for case fans.
there are 4 sockets for side fan so i might as well buy it some to fit it in.
1x AeroCool XtremeTurbine-Black 120mm Case Fan
1x COOLER MASTER STF-B01-E1 Cross Flow Fan for CM-Stacker
2x Thermaltake A2018 120mm Blue LED Case Fan
