I'd get a different motherboard.


That's an excellent motherboard, and I own it and it's fantastic, but not for that CPU. To make things simple, with that CPU you'll want a x965 Chipset.

Go with an asus P5B Deluxe. That will give you some excellent clocks.


Also I'd drop the raptor, and get a better video card.

7600 is good, but with a normal 250 GB 7200 RPM, you can step it up to a 7950 GT, which will suit you much better.

Excellent


Did you end up having money to make the move to the 7950 after deducting on the motherboard and hard drive?

Lord Anthrax, just curious, why do you think the 965 chipset is the best chipset for C2D?

Yea you can save some money by going with the one cdub89 mentioned:

The BFG is only slightly overclocked. With the evga, you can overclock past those of the BFG.

Fat.clown: if your budget is tight, and don't need wireless, get a normal P5B Deluxe instead of the P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP. It's a $20 saving right there, and the only difference is the onboard wireless adapter.

The P5B Deluxe is a good overclocker, too, if you ever decide to go in that direction. The latest BIOS gives a lot of liberties, and I've seen people reach FSB overclocks upwards of 500Mhz with Conroes (a dude overclocked an E6300 to 3.7Ghz just to get a killer SuperPi time - the motherboard allowed it).

It's better for chips with lower multies like the E6300, E6400 and somtimes E6600.


An E6300 needs a much much higher FSB to reach the same speed as an E6700, while the E6700 needs a much lower FSB.


965 Chipsets provide much higher FSB's and are better suited for chips with low multis.

x975 chipsets provide much stabler FSB's, good for chips with higher multies, because most dont do 450+ (P5W DH) and 380 390 is plenty of FSB for a E6700 and X6800. Maybe for E6600, Depends on where you want it
