Second, what do you think of my desktop build?
Processor - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66Ghz 8MB
(I opted out of the Q9550 for price reasons. You don't lose much performance.)
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-EP45-EXTREME
RAM - 1GB x 4 Corsair XMS2 DDR 800
GPU - BFG GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB with ThermoIntelligence™ Water Cooling
(I opted out of the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 1 GB for price reasons.)
Hard Drive - Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0Gb/s 500-GB
(I already have 300 GB and two others adding up to 200 GB.)
DVD - existing
Audio - built-in
Power Supply - CZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V Power Supply
Case + Water Cooling - Thermaltake Armor LCS - Liquid Cooled System
I know, I know, water cooling is probably unnecessary, but I've used both air and enormous heatsinks and I've still had GPU cooling issues. Also, does anyone know of a reasonable video capture card?
Suggestions to reduce price would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
