Default New Build

Hi ,
Im basically scrapping most of my old system for something new , i want to know if these are good parts and if ill see a increase in performance my old system :
AMD athlon 4400+ (s939) upgraded to : Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.67ghz) Socket 775 Fsb1066 4mb Cache Retail Boxed Processor

Winfast nf4sk8aa Upgraded to :
MSI P6N SLI-FI nvidia 650i Socket 775 ATX

1 GB of DDR Corsair XMS upgraded to :
OCZ 1GB DDR2 900MHz/PC2-7200 (OCZ2N900SR1G) SLI NVIDIA Certified ( two of these )

Winfast 7600gs ugraded to :
GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 PCIe SLI Video Card w/Dual DVI PCPartner
(I know its in america but even with shipping its still cheaper than getting one from the uk)

Ive got every other component needed.

Thanks

Get the e6600 instead, save yourself the money, and overclock.

You could also save money, by going with DDR2-800. There is really no difference between the e6600 and e6700. The e6700 just doesn't justify the extra money, for just 200MHz increase. When the e6600 can overclock 1GHz past that. And overclocking is safe these days. If you need help, we're here.

lol....verong...the e6700 doesn't have crappy performance, it's just the price/performance ratio is not good.

just found this memory :
Buy 2x 1GB OCZ SLI Ready Edition Dual Channel Kit OCZ2N800SR2GK from CCL - Online Retailer of the Year 2006
Like you said its DDR2 800 and about &#163;25 cheaper than the one i was originally going to get.
Also take a look at the graphics card , it only just struck me that it doesnt seem to have a brand ...
