I sort of hinted it at the bottom of my post, but I was saying it was decent RAM for overclocking, which I think most people will agree it is. I just didn't clarify much, and I forgot to mention that yes, cheaper RAM would be the way to go if you don't plan on overclocking.

Default vid card & TV Tuner idea

Whacha guys think about this idea:

I was thinking about getting the Geforce 6600GT and a TV tuner. Or shall I get the ATI all in wonder 9600 XT.

If I get a tuner which kind should I get? I was checking out the ATI and it has a feature of recording and watching two channels at the same time! I want something with alot of features like that. Let me know.

that TV tuner looks pretty good for $42 bucks or so.

the fact that the ATI all in wonder 9600 XT is both a video card and a TV tuner is nice, but the problem is that it is a very weak video card and for games you will be either unable to play them or forced to play them in 800 X 600 resolution.

So much better to buy the TV tuner seperately.

$1,128.34 and you would have a $60 rebate to take you down to about $1070, this would be faster than mine with the AMD 3000, plus you can overclock the crap out of that processor and video card if you ever had to, this monitor has DVI and 600:1 contrast ratio and 19" so its perfect.

That sound card posted above is a much better choice than the one posted previously, but then again, a sound card isn't entirly necessary, as the motherboard has onboard audio. But it has always been my experience that if you want the best in sound , stick with Creative. Its just one of those things thats makes gameing that much better

Anyone have any experience with the MSI neo4 nforce4 on board soundcard? The spec for the onboard soundcard is a 7.1.

Cause I'm thinking about purchasing the creative labs 7.1 speaker set.
