Default This is it ordering tommorow what do you think?

https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...stTitle=New+PC

Let me know what you guys think. I have really researched each part and think it's a good build. Couple things... I don't overclock, that said do you think this build is solid? Also my budget is 1200 is there anything else you would do different? I need this rig to be awesome for gaming and future proof. I'm going to be running Vista Ultimate 32bit.

Thanks!

Should work great... Congrats! Some people might argue that you should get a core 2 duo, but that system will be just fine. Enjoy...

Edit: the poster above is right about the ram... 2 gig would be best. I didn't even notice that you had two of them on there. If you want to save 25 bucks you could get a different power supply but thats up to you.

well I've heard that Vista Ult 32bit will address up to 3gb .... and eventually I plan on going 64 bit so I figured I might as well get the 4 now... I suppose I could get a 2 gb kit then just get a 1 gb chip for 3 .... Also I may do SLI eventually so that is why I went with that PSU, what other one would you recommend? Link?

corsair 520, corsair 620

Newegg.com - EVGA 122-M2-NF59-TR Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail if ur hooked on AMD

that board is awesome, but its gone up in price recently... thats sucks tho...but u get more features, dual-NIC, x16 PCi-e bandwidth since ur going SLi

I agree with vernong. 2 or 3g of ram is sufficient. Definitely go c2d.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

= $295....

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

Newegg.com - ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

He can get the DS3L instead:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
....cheaper, futureproof, and should overclock as well as the DS3R.
