well basically im looking at building a new system in the near future. im not a computer noob i have quite extensive knowledge includeing building my own basic phase change system tho its presently not working and it was more for the intrest of doing it once and seeing how it was than actual 24/7 sub zero temps.
as i spose that last sentance gave away im an overclocker, my goal is for my new system to be a serious oc rig. unfortunatly i have been busy with school and as such really have not been looking at tech or anything for a **** of a long time so thats why im looking for some constructive help so onto the specs
Processor: Intel Core2 duo E6300 1.86Ghz/ Allendale/ 2MB
Motherboard: well here i have hit a problem. i was looking around and it would seem to me that the best option for overclocking is the soon to be released nvidia 610chipset. 500+fsb just pwnz. but if there is another viable option id love to hear it also this will be my first intel rig so good brands ect for overclocking would be good
Grfx card: EvGA geforce 8800GTX reviews i have seen show a real dif between it and the GS as for the first time top and 2nd top grfx card from a vendor use dif cores. once more if im wrong please say so
Ram: G.Skill F2-6400CL4D-2GBPK 2GB Kit (2x1GB), PC2-6400 (800mhz), 4-4-4-12 nothing really seems to compare for price and performance and overclockability. anyone know if G.Skill still uses that brainpower pcb or was that changed in the ddr2 modules?
HDD: Seagate SATA II 16mb cach 250gig (il probebly get another for raid soon after)
Case: Thermaltake Armor w/ 430watt psu
PSU: now these have always been a weakpoint for me. would i be right taht the included 430watt psu won;t cope well with this rig overclocked? people always liked ocz so i was thinking if need be i could get OCZ 600W GameXStream Power Supply but a) is this a decent one? and b) is it nessersary
DVD: Asus DVD-RW
Floppy: got one spare
Cooling: i will be making a water cooling system for this. if anyone could tell me anywhere good in australia to buy watercooling it would be great
Well thnx for reading really would be appriciated if you could all help a bit
