Default Help On Build.

Ok, i posted my first build before. This time i realized i dont need an X2 Processor for games. So i got the 4000+ san diego core and got a ZALMAN 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan/Heatsink, these im hoping will work with eachother. Its says it works with 939 socket so i think im good. I made some changes to my list so id appreciate it if someone told me that i have something that is not compatible with something else or anything of that nature, and yes i know its a kick ass system so please dont tell me, thanks, ive been told 1000 times. Im doin this to make sure i get a complete, easy, successful build. If you see a name that is not good or something like SATA thats may be a hassle to use then tell me if you could. Thanks Guys, A LOT!!!! So here it is:

I see you have chosen an AMD 64bit cpu. A good decesion but perhaps you should consider windows xp pro 64bit edition to take full advantage of it.

It runs more efficiently by taking advantage of the expanded processing power of AMD's 64 bit chip. A few programs are incompatible with the new OS, so do a search to find a list. I personally think that it would be better just to wait for Vista.

Well, it would be easier if you posted links for the items so we can check compatibility, performance, et cetera.

wouldnt 2 6800 gts run better than just one 7800? if so id ditch that 7800 and get 2 6800 gts and run them sli, unless u plan on getting a nother 7800 which would be insane, and i would run dual channel 2 gb of ram....

I dont have that much money, the 7800gtx is fine. and yes in some cases the twin 6800gt's are faster, but not all the time.

Nope a dual 6800 can't beat a single 780.
