I would like to rebuild my computer so I can play high end games on High settings. I can play only on low at the present. (no online play) Below is my list to rebuild, using my existing case which is a is Apevia ATX mid tower. Also I would like to reuse the 3 GB of DDR2-667 Kington ram is possible and my 22" LCD wide screen. I do not know if I want to do any over clocking., as I have only over clocked a ATI video card. MY OS is Vista Prem which is OEM. I believe that is tied to my present Mother board's BIOS and cannot be used on another new MoBo, so I guess I have to buy another OS.
MoBo... Asus P5N-D 2-Way SLI Invidia, PCI Express 2.0, 1333 MHz FSB
CPU...Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 45NM, 1333 MHz
Two Video cards... BFG GeForce 8800GT OC2 Nivida 675MHz
PSU... Enermax Infiniti EIN650AWT 650 watt SLI approved
OS...Vista Home Prem
Cost is $1400.00 Can after taxes
#1 Is all this going to work together?
#2 Will the 667 Ram be OK to reuse or should I go 800 MHz?
#3 Will this be enough power?
#4 Should I buy over clocked cards or not?
#5 Will my Western 500 GB Hard drive Be OK to reuse and do I have to Format it.
This will be my first total build. so any suggestions, opinions, or advise will .
