Re: my first build. what i want...
Get the 512mb 8800gt or the 640mb 8800gts, they're both better than the 512 8800 gts. I don't know if XP will recognize 4 gigs of ram, will someone clear this up for me? Can some one tell me how much ram Vista 32-bit and 64-bit will support and then XP 32-bit and 64-bit. To save money you probably won't need a 800w psu. I'd go with a 650w. The liquid cooling is all up to you as well, but it should run fine with a good case and a Zalman on your cpu.
Intel Quad 6600, Asus P5N-E SLI, GeForce GTX 560 1GB, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Zalman 9700NT, X-Fi Xtreme Gamer, 650 watt PSU
