Per your suggestions - i have began my build up - Looking to spend no more than 1800 on a complete system (monitor, keyboard, etc..) - Not wanting super performance... just something good - with decent OC potential - and most importantly room to grow - need something that can keep with the times (read... new gpu's) - Going to do this for now - probably pick up the 4870X2 when it comes out, if thats possible...
Main question... what am i missing (first build) besides thermal paste.. and are there incompatible parts? the cooling unit being the biggest worry... with given case... Linky:
Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg
Will the extra RAM (8gb) help any? its such a good sale i figured i'd do it.. but if its worthless.. no point (already went back to 4.. after research)
I read that i will need cables for the HD? call be a noob as you will.. but what the **** do i need?
I was also wondering.. can my current MOBO support a hd4870 and the x2 when its released?
Thanks in advance... i am on a timer now.. sold my laptop - so i need to get this ordered quick! (work/school)
PS. I read just about every thread on the first 2 pages.. and used your reccomendations to come up with this.. so THANKS lol - you guys helped a ton..
