Re: How does this look?
I'm not used to these forums and a bit outdated when it comes to new rigs in the last 6 months but here's my two cents :
ASUS Mobo is a NO NO for me. It used to be a good company. My current Asus P5B which is no more than a year old need to be replaced. USB ports are ALL dead. After some searching, I realize its a known bug on those board. USB dyings... anyway it ****in sucks. Same problem was recently reported on some high-end ASUS boards... wtf is that.
Do you really need a top notch sound card and DVD writer? Save on those and get 2 HD instead. HD fails sometimes you know. Having 2 is not expensive and quite helpful. I also like having the OS on one and everything else on the other.
Core2 Duo E6300
2 X 1024 MB Kingston DDR2 800mhz
Asus GeForce 7600GT
