I have decided to give my old computer to my brother and build a new computer for myself.
I am going to be purchasing every thing except a new sound card and monitor.
So far I know I want to use this chip ---- Intel Core i7 920
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
And a 4870 graphics card. But so far that is all I know I want. I am not a big over clocker, I prefer to just buy new stuff when my old stuff gets dated.
I have been out of the country for a few weeks so I am out of the loop completely, if anyone is gracious enough to let me in on some of the latest stuff that would be awesome.
Also I dont SLI or Crossfire, so it's not a big deal to have a board that does that. And I was also considering buying my brother a poor mans LCD monitor, some pretty cheap, because it's already getting pretty darn expensive as a Christmas gift as it is.
