SLi, but he could go for 2x 3870x2 for crossfirex provided that the x38 chipset is better overclocker, right?

Default Re: Extremely demanding PC.

I've already recommended 4GB with the 2 x 2GB Ballistix kit. And I also recommended him Vista or XP Pro 64bit.

I'm not sure why I recommended 780i first, but I'll also throw in the X38 as an option.

Here's a revised list:


Case - Lian-Li PC-A70B Full Tower or your choice...
Processor - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 OEM
Motherboard - XFX MB-N780-ISH9 nForce 780i SLI or Abit IX38 Quad GT
Memory - 2 x 2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800
Graphics cards - EVGA 8800GTS 512 x2 in SLI or Sapphire HD 3870X2 1GB (If you're going with the Abit X38 motherboard.)
Power supply - PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610W
Hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 750GB x2 in RAID 0 and 7200.11 1TB x2
Optical drive - ASUS Black 20X SATA DVD Burner
Heatsink - Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme w/Scythe S-FLEX 1200rpm
Monitor - Gateway FHD2400 24" 3ms
Sound card - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1
Speakers - Logitech Z-5500 505W 5.1
OS - Vista Home Preimum 64bit OEM or XP Pro 64bit OEM
Keyboard - Logitech G15
Mouse - Logitech G5

You guys really are a big help. Unfortunately every option i choose in the "paying methods" section (Credit Card, Bill Me Later, and the other ones.) i get an error saying "We are unable to process your request" (or something along those lines) every time. I'm really eager to get started but Newegg just doesn't seem to want to process my request. Any suggestions (if any) would be greatly appreciated.

You can find some of those parts cheaper in different brands. Search around a little too. I've mentioned a couple times in another thread of a 8800 GTS that is only $215. The EVGA one up there is $300.

Will all of those parts be compatible with each other? Like, the motherboard being too small (or too big) for the case, the wrong processor socket, incompatible PSU, all that good stuff? Just wondering before i get something that doesn't fit

Everything he suggested would fit perfectly together and be just about the best pc money can buy for the price. Although, I would personally get a different case...
