Hello, I've set off to build my first computer, and also my first high performance gaming machine.
I have decided to settle with the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
, its got everything I need.
I'm stuck on what processor I should get, I don't know anything about them! NVIDIA says that the 680i supports 775 socket Intel processors... I don't want to buy a really expensive one, but one that works great, what should I use? It says it supports these following processors...
1. Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
2. Intel Pentium 4 LGA775
3. Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Extreme, Intel Core 2 Quad
As you can see, I'm really confused, I just want to get the right one, and not waste my money on a non compatible one.
Now on to the specs I want this machine to achieve...
NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
Still figuring this thing out...
4GB DDR2 800 (2 2GB Sticks)
120GB SATA HDD (Will upgrade later on)
SATA BD ROM - DVD ROM RW
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 1GB DDR2 HDMI
Might get a second one in time...
What type, and how many whats should it be?
Thats bout it, I'll use my 40" LCD HD TV for my monitor :laughing:. lol
Tell me your thoughts about this upcoming machine, and if you can, help me with the possessor...
