Default Re: Help me with my build

ur build is ultimate!! its like an overclockers dream and a performance build at the same time!!

if u want a cooler system (cooler looking and tempy wise) try these guys:

Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 RC-830-SSN2-GP Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail (this one is really pricey!! but price/performance the antec is ur best bet!)

Add some Arctic Silver 5 to ur list, cuz its known to drop the temperature of ur CPU from 5-10 degrees.....

Hey....I suggested that build..heh. It's a pretty awesome setup.

The Antec 900 is a great tower.

If you want to save a little more money.....the Gigabyte 965P-DS3, is a little cheaper:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

If you've got the budget for all that, I'd say that set up is pretty solid. I like your choice of motherboard. 650i is the way to go, 680i's are a joke from what I read in a couple reviews. Performance is marginally if any bit higher in a 680i over a 650i and if you're not running SLI there is zero performance increase. Looks like you did your homework.
I'd say go for it.

On second thought, if you want to go ahead and get a x64 OS (winxp pro x64, vista x64) get 4GB of RAM. You'll find many new games coming out soon can benefit from it. It's only about $100 more for twice the capacity.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
