Default Good Conroe Start?

e6600 2.4 ghz obviously :P

msi 7900gtx

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127097

ddr2 800 2x1gb - LINK FIXED

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231071

Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Socket T

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012

when you look at the items, can you look and make sure each one is compatiable with the other? the board says it takes ddr2 800, and 800/1066 FSB, will a e6600 work?

Your RAM link is to the GPU...

That board is fine. In fact, I think it's a lot better for the money. It's my choice out of all of the boards out right now.

hmm

the 7900gtx is not bad but when it comes to Price : Performence ratios, the ATI x1900xt is better, it does margianlly better in some terms and its cheaper by far AND it's easy to OC to an xtx speeds on air lol [as the xt and xtx has 25mhz core speed diffrence and 50mhz memory speed diffrence].

-Jo.

Plus, no ATI card is OCed by the 3'rd party companies, ATI Do not allow them to do such stuff, unlike all of those overclocked, super overclocked and uber l33t woah zomg overclocked editions of all the Nvidia cards.... which is bad because the 3'rd parties board manufacturers companies like BFG and XFX does a horrible job OCing those cards within the factory, and there are a LOT of DOA cases.

Its not the companys OCing the card bad, its the companys producing ****ty quality type cards.


I would go more in depth, but il just leave it at that.

The G80 series is coming soon anyway. You might wanna wait. Or you could go with eVGA Step-Up if you can't. I dunno if beefcake went with it or not, but you could look into it. My intuition tells me it's not very profitable, but the latest I can order my parts is August 7th, so here's to hoping.
