just raise the fsb. and dont worryim sure ur mobo will do fine for a little overklocking just nothing to extreme.and yea ur gonna want something a little better the a 6600GT ur gonna want at least a 6800GT cause later u can dd one more asnd see a big improvement with the 6600gt u wont see a big improvement just try to be a little futre proof and going dual core ur dong just that. But the intels are a lot more cheaper dual core chips if u wanna spend a little more on a video card.

go with that one and overclock a bit then u have 100$ more to spend on a video card. just a suggestion.

Thanks, but I really don't want an itel CPU. Right now I'm on a laptop with a Radeon IGP 345M. I'm lucky if I get 20 FPS on games... I think the 6600GT will be fine for me.

But back of the main point, think I'm going to need liquid cooling to overclock it to 2.4 - 2.6 Ggz? Or should I just get regular cooling and use the extra money to upgrade something else. Perhaps the power supply?

like in my post here[the last post]. I am looking at the Asetek VapoChill Micro series for my cooling.

I did some research on the liquid cooling I selected, It has some very nice reviews

Sigh, now I can't decide between these sites..

www.Ibuypower.com
www.cyberpowersystem.com
www.ecollegepc.com

They all seem to have very good prices. I really want to build one myself, but the specs wouldn't be as good as the ones from those 3 sites.


edit: sorry, double post >.<

the MSI is not the best for overclocking, but it is the second best.

also look at www.newegg.com, www.monarchcomputers.com and www.pricewatch.com

Thanks, but I already tried looking for the best deal. The parts were all cheaper if I bought them from a company instead
