I am building a VERY fast gaming computer. I plan on playing the newest games (like Crysis, Call of Duty 4, Unreal, and new games that demand a fast computer.) I like to do video work to, and i like to use AutoCAD Inventor, so i need a good all around computer, but mostly for gaming.
This is what i have picked out for it now, tell me what you think. What should i change and what would be best for my Money.
I already have this case but what do you think?
This is the Motherboard/CPU/RAM combo i plan on buying:
XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard CPU Bundle - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor 2.40GHz OEM, OCZ 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 Memory (2 x 2048MB)
CPU cooler/Heatsink(If you know of anything better besides water cooling, PLEASE share!!!):
ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 CPU Cooler
OCZ / GameXStream / 1010-Watt
Ultra X2 750-Watt Power Supply (I like this one!)
Those are just cool ons i found. VERY open to suggestions!!
Ok, now the graphics cards.... This i don't really have an idea on. I an always upgrade later, but i dont want to spend more than $200 for now. But as of now, its going to be(can always upgrade later:
One of these
XFX GeForce 8800 GT XXX 512MB Video Card
or Two of these
XFX PVT84JYAJG GeForce 8600GT 512MB
Also what OS is the best? I don't really like vista, And XP only reads 3.25gb of ram. so should i use XP pro 64-bit? or what?
What is better. i would like to build a VERY good comp, and not have to upgrade for along time.
If you know of a great graphics card that isn't to much then please share. If YOU personally dislike something please tell me. I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTION!!!
After talking for awhile, me and my dad though it MAY be better to go with this motherboard. Do i have to use the 8800 graphics cards? and what size power supply should i get? Which mombo do you think is the best?
ANOTHER idea for the computer.
EVGA nForce 780i SLI Motherboard CPU Bundle
Thanks A LOT if you will help me, and please comment back if you disagree with anything i have posted.
