Default How's this look?

I'm looking to build a new computer. I put this together and have been doing lots of research on this stuff but will always consider constructive criticism. If you see anything that needs changing let me know. I like to game a lot so thats why I chose the 3700+. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

512MB XFX 7900GTX

OK Listen.

In 22 days time you could gate an athlon x2 in same price you'r paying for that atlon 3700

Other than that, awsome build, enjoy it!


And in 22 days time you would also have the option to go with the E6600 Conroe which all talks about, that supposed to kick *** for a long time.

Hope this helps

BTW, i'd spare the money on the GTX and get same card only GT and OC it to a GTX clock speed, and in the money I spared + maybe a little add on i'd ge a **** of a custome dangerden cooling kit!!! heh..

u dont know it will come in 22 days. Even if it does you have no gurantee of being able to get ur hands on one for a cheap price...

The official release date as of now is July 23rd. AMD's prices are also going to drop soon as they're released. But I agree, there isn't any guarantee you can get one when they are released.

If you want to save some money on a CPU, I'd say wait a few weeks.

Please go with Conroe. Or an X2 if you really want to.

definitely don't bother with the crappy network card as the Ultra-D has DUAL GIGABIT LAN!!!. the sound card is up to you but personally i quite like DFI's onboard sound.

Indeed, it even provides a BETTER one lolol.

Same about the sound card in my opinion, if you really wanna feel the diffrence in GAMES [not music, music is actualy better off on a stero-channel not surround mode] then the x-fi's will be a significant improvment the rest, don't bother..

and to all of you who has been criticizing me about saying 22days, I'm only following what both intel and AMD has said to be the official date for price drops and conroe release.. son't don't flame me.
