Re: Suggestions Will Be Taken lol
ok here goes with the suggestions...
cpu = Opteron 165 (comes stock 1.8Ghz but almost every single stepping can reach 2.6
Ghz on stock cooling)
Mobo = ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939(good reputation, decent for overclocking, and
has all of your requests)
Hard Drive = yours is totally fine, many people will suggest a raptor 10000 rpm for the os
but that (to me) is a waste of money.
Video Card = 7900GT (it is more powerful than the 7800GTX and costs much less, any brand should be fine but XFX and eVGA are preferred due to the warrenties and eVGAs step up program.)
sound card = yours is fine(might want to think about buying some nice speakers with the money you will save if you go with my suggestions)
Power Supply = Enermax 535w (wattage isn't the only thing you should look at, the key thing is the +12V rails, the enemax has dual +12V rails at 18amps a piece, and it is SLI certified. it will power almost anything you can throw at it)
RAM = G.Skill Extreme Series 2GB 2 x 1GB DDR SDRAM Unbuffered Dual Channel DDR500 (PC4000)
an additional cpu HSF is fine but just to tell you opterons are known for having very very nice stock cooling. anyway i hope these help.
So it Goes.
