Default List for MMO Gamming Build

Hey Guys,

$190 - Intel E8500 ($20 more than E8400 and this way I know I will hit 4GHz)

$85 - ASUS P5Q Pro (after $35 combo discount with E8500 and $20 MIR)

get this thermal paste instead:
Newegg.com - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound - Thermal Compound / Grease

get psu from here:
Corsair TX 750W ATX 12V Power Supply - CMPSU-750TX - Buy.com

u might consider this mobo if u can live without the combo:
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
but the p5q pro should do well also


other than that looks awesome

edit: case is eh, prolly cost a ton

edit2: if u got a microcenter near u:
Micro Center - 120mm 3-Heat Pipe Universal CPU Cooler

I took your advice on the compound and the PSU at buy.com. I did a quick search for promo codes on google and got a extra $5 off.


Microcenter is to far away.


In regards to the Thermaltake Spedo you may be right, although after reading reviews on it I thought it maybe time to upgrade from my Thermaltake Tsunami.

idk that case just looks kinda ugly to me, also another thing that turned me off was every five seconds on that web site there was a abnormally loud engine reeving, it got pretty annoying
