Default Finnaly got the thing built = )

After 6 days of forum reading, getting help from you guys i finally chose all the parts and hope this to be a great system. I built it base don a balance of High end gaming experience/future proofing the best i could. Plan on keeping this for quite a while so the quad core may be slower than a e8500, but itl be worth it in the long run i hope.


EVGA E-GEFORCE 9800GX2 600MHZ 1GB 2.0GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDMI HDCP HDTV Out Video Card (Later Sli 2 of them)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATA2 8.5MS 7200RPM 16MB Cache (X2 in raid)


Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case

Zalman ZM1000-HP 1000W Power Supply ATX 12V 2.2 20/24PIN Modular Cable SLI Ready Heatpipe 140MM Fan


EVGA Nforce 790I Ultra LGA775 ATX DDR3 3 PCI-E X16 2 PCI-E X1 2 PCI SATA2 RAID Sound Motherboard

Corsair XMS3 TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX G 2GB DDR3 2X1GB DDR3-1333 CL 9-9-9-27 Dual Channel Memory Kit (later add 2 more gb)


Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Quad Core Processor LGA775 2.66GHZ Yorkfield 1333FSB 12MB OEM No HSF


ASUS Silent Knight II LGA775 AM2 AM2+ S939 45.6CFM 2300RPM Heatsink Fan Copper Cooler

Thanks again for all your help, I hope to contribute to the forums with what i do know.

(Wonder what type of 3dmark06 i will get)

Any Seagate Barracuda is a great hdd though, ive had my 300GB version 2 years now and its going strong, and its so quiet.

Awesome spec by the way, enjoy!

You -should- get around 18-19k 3dmark depending on how much you overclock. Thats a lot of power supply...you planning on going quad sli?

Hey veedubfreak, I am going to be building a system almost identical to yours and melioz's. Only I'm keeping it to one 9800GX2 and a Q6600. I'm using a Xigmatek cooler with the same memory as you. Different motherboard. I'm getting an Asus x38 board. The parts should be here today or tomorrow and I'm excited to see what it can do. My last customer's build I just finished is more of the mid-range and it already looks amazing on Call of Duty 4 and Crysis with just the 9600GT and 2GB of G. Skill memory and an E6550 C2D. Non-overclocked it gets about a 10,000 3dmark06 score, so I can't wait to see what I get with this next build.
