Hey, this is what I'm planning on buying very soon for my first 'gaming' rig, let me know what you think. Also, any obvious parts that I've missed out is because I already have them.
-CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
-Motherboard: Asus P5Q- Pro
-Graphics: 4850, 512mb (not sure on brand yet)
-Ram: 4gb (2x2Gb) OCZ Reaper's 1066Mhz
-CPU cooler: Thermaltake big typhoon
-Case: Thermaltake Armor mx (black)
-Power Supply: Thermaltake toughpower 600w
-Wireless PCI card: Dlink DWA-510
-Optical drive: Pioneer Blu-Ray combo
-Speaker: Logitech 2.1
-Video cable: dvi-hdmi
-HDD: Seagate 250Gb Sata 2 16mb
Just a question also...about the ram. I've heard some things about vista 64bit, about being non-compatable with some hardware and with some games etc.. Would it be a bad idea going with 4gb ram and seeing only 3.? in 32bit, or should I go with 2gb of ram? If I did get 4gb and ran a 32bit OS, will it still be running in dual channel?
Thanks, any opinions?
