Hey Chaps second post here, I'v decided to build up my own Project computer I need it mainly for after effects/sony vegas and light gaming . But it has to be cheap. very cheap. I'm thinking along the lines of the following
I have a ATX/micro case already and cooling fans/dvdrw and Windows 7 64bit. oh and a 200gb Sata HDD! So that's a big chunk out the way.
Now I'm looking at this motherboard
Intel DQ965GF Core2Duo Core2Quad Motherboard - D41016-600 | eBay
Mainly because it's just over £20 delivered and it supports core 2 quad.
Processor INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 2.6ghz, Around £50
MB support only 4GB for 800MHz and 8GB for 667 or 533 MHz.
Would it be worth to be at 4gb 800mhz? Or 8gb 667? (I'll be on 64bit either way)
Motherboard has build in graphics card as a card isn't in my budget right now but it'll work to use until i can get a nice card. (Mobo has PCI-E x16 and a x8)
600w Corsair £60, Not going to cheap out here.
Something decent. Better than stock as they are not too expensive and play a big role. (And my computers stay on quite often)
Intel DQ Mobo
Built in graphics (For now)
Core2Quad 2.6 (Can this be overclocked, Running on a decent cooler?)
200gb WD sata HDD
8gb Ram? Or 4, Depending on Ram speed issue.
600w Corsair PSU
How would this system handle Games and after effects with a decent card? and do i seem to be missing anything?
