Default Re: Too Much Confusion

Thanks much.

This is what I'm looking at then.

Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131540

Processor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103588

Video Card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150108

RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227219

I'll be adding another video card later. Motherboard was another mind boggler, DFI or ASUS. I went with ASUS due to the name. If all looks good and I get your guys blessings then I'll start the purchasing now. (It'll be done piece by piece, and not all at once.)

you should go with one of the new intel 9XX series they are a 65nm instead of a 90nm allowing to over clock the hell out of them. Plus they arent really that expensive.

No, stick with the 165 Denmark. It's a much better Dual-Core then the Pentium D and the Athelon 64 X2 series processors. That Opteron 165 along with 2 gigabytes of RAM and a 7800GT is a mighty fine PC.

What about the hard drive? How many gigs do you plan on getting? And which brand?

I'm thinking he should get a Western Digital 120GB S-ATA hard drive. It's fast, it has lots of room, and it's reliable. You can't go wrong when you have all those aspects.

DONE!!

As for hard drives, I can get them through work. 140 GB SATA for free. Theres nothing out there that is more worth THAT. They're only 1.5s but hey, I'm not complaining. For awhile I was able to get SCSI drives and boards, but not anymore. Plus mobo's with SCSI support are hard to find with other features like SLI (ASUS now makes one with CROSSFIRE support though, but it's Pentium and EXPENSIVE).
