Gaming Build, suggestions pls...
I'm designing a new computer to build for myself, and thought I could use some input from you guys. I'm not the most expert technician, so lets include only novice-type things, so no SLi, water cooling, etc...
I'm trying to keep the total project under or around $2000USD.
Here's what I'm thinking so far:
CPU: e6600 (over the 6700 because I heard the 6600 is more stable and overclockable, is this true?)
Video: eVGA GeForce 8800 GTX
Case: Antec 900
Mobo:eVGA LGA 775 NVidia GeForce 680i SLI ATX
I guess some advice I need is on some memory, (I know the mobo can handle DDR1200 but is that the best?) a PSU, and harddrives. I know I probably want a 37GB 15k for the OS, and then another 500gb 7,200 for all the other stuff.
Also, I have a Vizio 32" HDTV which I'm thinking of using as a monitor. Can anyone speak for the quality if hooked up through a DVI to HDMI cable?
