Looks good. Maybe SLI board? Other that that. Looks good, but not exact parts i would buy for $1300. BUt okay.

jester6565 08-11-2005 07:07 AM

yea i would maybe go for a better cpu, maybe overclock it? u could also try sli with two 6600 gts. just a thought though.

No. We've covered this. One 6800GT does better then two 6600GT's. So just get a 6800GT and save for if you want another.

jester6565 08-11-2005 09:29 AM

alright sounds good, but he could get a little bit more powerfull cpu

DragonBreath 08-11-2005 10:06 AM

Is a AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor a better cpu?

I mean that you could get somthing like a 3400, or 3700, or if you have the money go with the fx series. Im not saying its bad, just there are somethings better

I spotted this cruising newegg today.....Im not sure about these systems, but looks ok with a better processor. Maybe you can e-mail them to find out what mboard they use, what brand of 6600gt they use, and what brand of PSU and hard drive they use. They could be junk, cause they dont list the specifics....maybe someone else has purchased or knows about these systems.....just another option possibly...Monarch u will know for sure what you are getting.


As well, on that system i put together, try to get a dvd read drive instead of the cd drive i put down...dvd drives will do both dvds and cds...
