Default Getting ready to buy my first custom.

Alright in the past i've went through gateway and dell for my computer needs however i'm deciding to create one from scratch this time. I've searched around quite a bit looking for the best value and here's what i've found. Just looking for you opinions this is from AvaDirect. Also curious if anybodys dealt with them and if so how satisfied were you.

Tower: Raidmax, RX-9GT Mid-Tower ATX
Motherboard: Asus, P5n32-SLI Premium
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 DC 2.4ghz 1066MHz, 4mb L2 Cache
Video Card: Asus EN7600GS GeForce 7600GS, 512mb ddr2
Hard drive: Seagate 320gb 7200 SATA ll 16mb cache
Memory: 2 x 1gb OCZ 800MHz DDR2 PC6400 ram

I did talk to a rep from tigerdirect today and he specified that Intels Core 2 duo's processors were not 64bit compatible. Then I asked him about the vista ready logo then he stated that I would need to download a driver when vista 64bit came out. Can anybody confirm that this processor and motherboard will be 64 bit compatible? Thanks for the help and info guys. If you know of any other decent sites let me know.

Get a 7600GT instead of a GS.

The 7600GT is priced awesome right now.

Personally i shop at www.newegg.com


personally I would spend $70 more and get the X1950Pro

that card is pure beast for the price

you dont want that motherboard. Really. The nvidia 590SLI boards suck for Intel. Get the 680i or P965 or 975x chipsets instead. A lot better performance. Its well worth it.
