I have quite a lot of experience in building computers and computer parts..
It's just that the past year I have been doing no research at all.
I read up on the new processors and such today.. interesting stuff.
I am deciding for this build to go for one or two 9800GTX cards because they are an excellent price/FPS value and when adding two in SLI the performance increase is substantially great compared to most cards, such as the 9800gx2, and a simple quad core such as the Q6700. The Q6700 can be overclocked just as much as the Q6600 I know but I got a great deal on the Q6700 so I am sticking with it. As for the motherboard.. I couldn't pass up the Biostar TPower.. I have always wanted one. Sound card I reckon I will go with the X-FI Prelude 7.1 because it seems like a good card and it has EAX 5.0 capabilities, which is good for gaming. As for the RAM I guess I will go with OCZ Gold 2GB
because they were recommended to me. As for cooling.. I will build a liquid cooling system, probably from Petras Tech.. and will eventually do some overclocking on this build.
