Alright, I don't think I've actually seen a thread like this one, so try not to shoot me :P
Just recently bought the comp in my sig, and for the most part I like it, but I'm unsatisfied. The CPU is single core, the RAM is slow.. well I like the graphics card. It will all tide me over until....
Yes, this is a DirectX 10 topic.
I want to be one of the first to get the DirectX 10 cards, and I want a powerful system to back it up.
Basically what I'm looking at is a Conroe (Core 2 Duo.. whatever.. blow me) build.
Now the motherboard I'm not too sure about. Are we still waiting for cheaper, better boards to come out? $300+ (I live in Australia) for a motherboard seems a little extreme for me. So this will probably change.
With Vista coming out, I would possibly consider getting two of these packs, and having 4GB of RAM for Vista to take advantage of, and probably hog.
Pretty standard stuff really.. but not willing to pay the extra few hundred for the 6700.
I know very little about PSU's to be honest, but Enermax seems to be a recommended brand, and with 2x 22a +12v, that seems pretty good.
Well.. we don't know anything about this yet :P
Of course for all this, I will buy sufficient cooling to allow me to overclock the **** out of that CPU and RAM.
This list is subject to change obviously, as newer, faster, and perhaps cheaper hardware comes out in these next few months.
I guess this is a really standard post.. meh.
Also - Is there any good DDR 1000 RAM out? What sort of compatibility do motherboards have for this stuff?
