Default Might be overkill..but my next build -.-

Ok, some of you might think this is overkill, and it probably is... but this is what I plan on building in the next month or two... and if you guys have anything that you think would work better let me know

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103544 787.00

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131517 (Not sure on this yet..just an idea..anyone else with better mobo maybe?) 159.00



Video Cards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143044 (two of them..overkill i know) 1500$

Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210 442.82

Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703002 499.00

Hard Drives http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701 (x2 = 230.00)

also.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144160 (x2 = 328.00)


Don't need a new sound card.. or case.. Havent decided what kind of extra cooling I want to go with (i.e watercooling, or something else).. any opinions on that would be cool.

Total - 3945.82 .. so basically 4k give or take.

Expensive? yes i know. I haven't decided if im going to do it come Jan.. or wait till the around may.. (newer stuff might be out then) .. either way I plan on making something nice just for the hell of it really got a little extra cash coming in so you know how that goes. Anyways, was just looking for some ideas

yes overkill.. lol

7800gtx 256 mb plays any game fine on full

2 7800gtx 512s is overkill and a half dude.. i would save yourself the other 750 bucks and get a good set of speakers and headset

meh well i already have a nice 5.1 and headset as well. But like you said it's overkill..and it's only a "buildsheet" i would call it for now.

By the time I actually get around to building it, I might want a new plasma.. or some other toy haha. But it sure would be nice to have still.

I like your style. But AMD FX-57 > X2 4800 at games.

Windows xp doesnt recognise more than 3 gigs I think so thats pointless until Vista comes out. And get 1 7800GTX 512 card.
