6.5 out of 10. you would have gotten a higher score with a 6800 GT or better.

I\'m happy with it.

I agree with the person above.

Why get 2GBs of OCZ and only get a 6600GT?
Also, Why EPoX?

And do you really need a 250GB 7200RPM HDD??

Tbh. your money allocation isn't very good.

Get 2gb's of cheap generic ram. If you are not going to overclock loads (and you probally won't be able to with that mobo.) you won't notice the difference.

With that money, spend it on a 6800gt.

And find some money for a good PSU. The ones that come with cases generally are terrible, and cause the hardware to blow after time.

you wont be able to OC very far with 2GB anyways

the ram is nice, its cheap like 220 dollars, and you might be able to get a nice OC out of them

should have went with a 3200+ or a 3000+ and got a 6800GT with the money your saving

could have got better with MSI or DFI

And do you really need a 250GB 7200RPM HDD??
dude i heard people who can fill up like 2 500GB hdds in less then a month im guessing you dont listen to music store photos watch TV, games, and other stuff

psu that come with case are generic and suck

ill give it hmm take a point of for the processo/video card MSI would have been better, i give it a 6-7

and for that price that sucks, you could have gotten a dual core for around the same exact price but then you would have to get 1GB but i mean its dual core for the same price

I have a 250, a 120 and a 40. Out of all that, I have about 100gigs left and my collection still grows. Some people need the space!

Epox is not exactly a good name brand product for motherboards IMO. I would go with gigabyte, MSI, or DFI-Lanparty.

7 out of 10 here. I agree with everyone else about the RAM, Video Card...etc.
