OK so I updated this list with a Ram choice. I will likely not go SLI with this system because I need the dual monitors and when you go SLI it forces you to just 1 and I would think you would only need that performance boost for gaming which I will not do at work anway. The case I am not quite sure what you are talking about with the fan stuff, I wasn't planning on adding any additional fans in the front since I will not be going SLI and will not be OCing enough for any 3rd party cooling. Would you recommend I not get this case? Now lastly I am lost with MOBO's. You suggested those 2 kinds but I have no clue what they are, please explain a little more about em and post links so I can look at em and research em a bit. Many thanx!!
I was looking at this for the CPU:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz -- $309
Features: dual core, 2.4 ghz speed, excellent OC potential, excellent overall processor perfect for graphic intensive programs and multi-tasking, excellent quality for low price.
Still need this, suggestions please
eVGA 7800GTX that I already have at home.
Features: free, worked extremely well for me at home for a year running Photoshop and games flawlessly including running dual monitors. There will not be gaming at work but I need the best picture quality possible.
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) -- $309 -- $269 after $40 mail-in rebate
Features: Excellent quality brand, dual channel, 800mhz, stays cool with heatspreaders.
iStarUSA Nitro Ax S-10000B Black Aluminum ATX Full tower case -- $106.99
Features: Large for good ventilation, removable mobo tray, nearly toolless assembly design, 120mm fan in rear, vents on side.
I wasn't quite into the PSU you chose cause it supposedly has issues with 7 series vidcards with a max 18amps rating so I was lookin at this:
OCZ GameXStream 600w power supply -- $114.99 -- $96.99 after $18 rebate
Features: Excellent psu power and dependability, the smaller version of the 700w version I am running at home and have LOVED.
Dual SAMSUNG 940BX Black 19" LCD Monitors -- $239.99 each, $480 for both
Features: dvi inputs for excellent picture quality, 5ms response time, 300 cd/m2 color and 1000:1 contrast for excellent picture quality perfect for graphics editing with Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash.
I also liked the hd you chose
Western Digital 7200 rpm 250gig -- 79.99
Features: 250 gigs for plenty of storage, 7200rpm for decent speed, western digital dependable brand, low price.
I liked your choice for DVD/CD burner
LITE-ON Black -- $31.99
Features: dependable brand, low price, read/burn both dvds and cds.
Sony 3.5 floppy drive -- $7.99
Features: dependable, cheap
Total current price of those items = $1,439.95 if I am assuming I am putting in my 7800gtx for free and still need to add a MOBO so now I am just looking at MOBOs.
EDIT: I noticed this was the p5b deluxe one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131028
but it seems to have stuff I don't need like up to 8gb of memory and I was hoping to perhaps get a lower cost MOBO that would still work well. But I still want quality so keep that formost, if this is by far the best quality then i want to keep this as the choice. Just let me know what yall think. Thanx
EDIT2: Oh and with that mobo at a cost of $196.99 my system total would be up to $1,636.94 before rebates and a grand total of $1,578.94 after all rebates.
