Default Re: CF, do you approve of this build?

EDIT: By the way, 550W power supply is sufficent to run this setup correct?

Or......you could get something simple like this one to reduce the cost of the motherboard but not sacrificing the main performance aspects of it like the FSB.

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059

What I love about that motherboard is the fact that it still has some useable PCI slots for hardware you might have that could still use it. I have yet to see any cards that uses the other PCI-express slots, lol. What's with manufacturers anyways?!? They need to keep up with the times.

Q6600 SLACR is definitely the CPU to get, no doubt.

As for RAM, get Crucial Ballistix.

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146565

The Crucial Ballistix Tracer is a bit faster, but at a higher cost. It may be beneficial should you go with the eVGA motherboard though.

Well the RAM being slightly faster isn't really worth paying more for, plus that RAM is very stable and many use it

The problem with the board is that I believe the 680i chipset is a higher performing chipset and plus I COULD SLi later if I chose 2
