Default First pc build specs, updated...

Well, her is my pc specs, I won't change two thing usless they are better for my buck. The cpu, and the gpu. I also love this mobo and don't even have it yet. Most things have stayed the same since the last thread but I chnaged the cooling, because the case I have won't have anything as of 120mm fans. I need to know the best airflow fans that have green lED lights.

MoBo ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T
Case XION XION _ Solaris XON-403
CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe
GPU SAPPHIRE 100149L Radeon X1900XTX 512MB
Ram CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2
Hdd Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB
CD/DVD LITE-ON Black x2
Cooling APEVIA(ASPIRE) CF4S-UGN 80mm 2x
Extra cooling Spire CF401G 80mm Ball
PSU Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W
Extra Microsoft Keyboard + Mouse

It comes to about $1725. I am waiting on a price drop near christmas. I reason I am posting this again is because I need to know if my cooling looks good. I know everything is compatible, but if their any better deals out there tell me. One thing is that I am getting it near christmas so nor mail-in-rebates would count.
I plan to overclock it alot but I am ask for the heatsink/fan for christmas, so no need to pick it out, but what is the best. All time best, and I don't care about the price uless it is over $100.

The GPU is no longer in stock. I suggest going for a X1900XTX any way. I know that you can easily overclock the X1900XT to XTX speeds, but wouldn't that mean that for only $20 more, you could OC the XTX even higher? Seems like a better deal to me.

I suggest this: SAPPHIRE 100150L Radeon X1900XTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3: $325.00 after a mail in rebate, $355.00 before it.

Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.

Whats the difference between these two GPUs?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102672

And

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102037

And isnt this the same ram for cheaper?

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=85025-5

If so, I recommend it.

or wait and see on DX10 if you waitin that long, it is about that same time. I think.

I dont undersatnd why it costs so much, I built a computer with very similar specs on newegg. and it only came to like 1250 dollars I think.

EDIT: nevermind, I see you live in india, so prices are a lot different

The difference between the two GPU's is that the more expensive one comes with a much larger software bundle. not worth the price IMHO. Other than that, they are exactly the same.

Yeah, I plan to look into Directx 10 chips when I get vista, games, xbox 360 hardware/solfware, and a moniter. I have a 52in TV Hdtv of course. I plan to use that until I get a $300 LCD Moniter. I can't wait untill I get this system. I have almost $400 right now but I Make Around $75 a week so I may just maybe will have it by christmas. I plan on buying nothing untill then.

I have a question. Well, you know amd bought ati recently. I want to know will they stop making the ati cards for intels. I want to know because I need to know to either go nvida or ati. I know ati is better right now but this pc will have to last me atleast 5 years with upgrade to graphics.

Upgrading when they come out should be best, seeing how it's going to take a while anyway. The last I heard is sometime mid-2007, that's a good bit of time away.
