Default Re: Which would u choose? 6600's

The only thing I don't have compared to Zen's setup is the extra 6600GT, the extra 1GB RAM, and overclocked CPU and RAM. I don't know if that SATAII is doing any good at all, but my smaller drive SATA (coming soon) will have faster access time, hopefully. I just don't see any use for anything faster up to this point until better utilization of software.

For the sound card, most likely I will get the Audigy 2 ZS Gamer.

THe MSI is coming out with a sweet PCIe mainboard!!! I think it's out now, but Newegg doesn't carry it yet because it's so new. I should've waited for that, but the GIgabyte will do. Almost same specs anyways.

For the sound card, this one looks good. THX-certified too:

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS GAMER Limited Edition PCI Sound Card

oh my god. Did you see the games that comes with that sound card? Sheeshh, this is a great deal. Excellent sound card by a number 1 manufacturer, plus comes loaded with software and games.

I'm buying my hard drive from a local PC Club, and not on Newegg. I'm getting it next week when Newegg gets all my stuff in. I hope to get the SATA to work and don't want to go through the hassle of RMA to Newegg. A simple return to PC Club store is easier and convienient.
