hello everyone, i am currently sorting thru parts to build my brother a computer (he is paying for it, trying to keep within 1500)
he already has a hard drive from a long time ago, from the box its a ::
Western Digital Hard Drive
if i should get a new hard drive pls let me know, but I believe this should be fine.
He also has a ****ty monitor, no clue what kind or what it looks liek but he says he is keeping it. Along with the HD and monitor he also has an old Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card (which honestly i dont even know if it will be compatiable or not) and he wants to keep that instead of getting a new one.
ok onto the computer, here is what i have pieced together so far.
!!PAGE 2 WITH NEW SYSTEM!!
Ok now for the reasoning behind some stuff. I know a lot of people think the SLI boards are useless, however he is into games and i believe in the future the 7800 card will go down in price and he might want to buy another one of those and run the 2 in SLI mode. As for the fan controller, i was told that the case i choose had very loud fans, also my brother may wish to replace the stock fans later down the road anyway. If the controller is useless please let me know.
Basically i would love to know if all of this is compatiable with each other, are good/the best choices, and your opinions. The RAM im not sure about at all, i just picked random value ram, and as for the power supply I was at a loss as well.
