I'm planning to build a new computer early next year and was hoping for some advice. The Rig will be solely for gaming.
Also I'm In the uk so please bear that in mind when posting links.
I'm pretty sure I want the Intel quad core Q6600 G0 SLACR CPU, Mobo wise i'm thinking Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus.
Graphics card wise i'm unsure wether to get a pair of higher end DX9 cards or to go with two DX10 cards 8600 gt/gts is about right for my budget. In the end what may decide the Graphics card could be if i choose to get vista or stick with xp.
On the storage front I'm toying with wether to use raid 0 since it will be solely for games.
Case will be Antec nine hundred or thermaltake kandalf if i can find one cheap enough.
power supply I'm pretty open on, I'm expecting 700watt or more as i don't want to run a cheapo psu on it's limit I'd rather go over a bit and let a decent one take things in it's stride.
total budget is a bit up in the air as I expect prices to change after christmas expect it to be £7-900
what I'm looking for is a shortlist to shop for after santa has been.
any thoughts or observations would be greatly appreciated.
