help building a gaming pc
« on: September 07, 2007, 10:53:20 PM »
Im thinking of building a new computer and would like some help in deciding which parts I should get
I was thinking of getting this CPU, these two RAM sticks, and an nForce 680i motherboard (what is the difference between the A1 and T1 versions of the board?)

I also need help on deciding whether or not I should get two of these or a single 8800?

I am using tigerdirect to shop for these items because there is a store close by

    My advice will cost you nothing   :D

    motherboard - the 2nd*  T1 board you like is excellent, "lifetime warranty"!   Like their GPU's*  graphis cards, they have  the best warranties  in the tech buying Industry (BFG-too ! <  )    for  pc's...

     Ram * no.  buy the HQ   sticks of G-skill here:

     cpu*  ???    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

     I would (still)  get this cpu >  E6600    ( U can oc to almost 4!)


    most people will say Buy*  A quad  card...
      maybe but   I still would wait for the new cpu releases on this chip first before attempting a new build*   The Penryn  chip   ?  spelling ?

    the best bargain  Mobo right now with a built in Creative Hi-Fi sound card .. + 75.00 !s this which I would buy*


    "Buy"  the way ..........  tigerdirect s OK* But newegg if the product is there or  a reasonable alternative,  usually gives  a buyer a much better price* +
      If you been here  awhile and know about quit asking questions and  do a  "google" search first*   9 times out of 10,  you will find an answer !

    Reading about all the stuff you want to spend/ purchase  money on.......Helps

    GPU _ ANY*  8800 ( Nvidia)  series ....   with  640 of ram  * get one  1 #  card  .........  its too expensive to run SLI  dual cards  so,  get the highest rated 8800 card you  like....

    Best Luck




    mobo- MSI P6N SLI / LCD Samsung  226BW
    Ram- G-Skill dual HQ / Speakers- 5300e's
