Core 2 duo build please comment Tags: Homebuilt Build Systems Last response: July 25, 2006 1:06 AM in Systems Share summers618 July 24, 2006 10:45:25 PM My build, comment on flaws, and what is the bottleneck here? CPU - Core 2 duo e6300 - 183 Mobo - Asus p5w DH - 240 (would really like a cheaper one, but want to OC) Video - Radeon X1800XT - 280 Memory - OCZ Gold series 2GB 240 pin DDR2 667 - 148 Sound - Diamond XtremeSound XS71 7.1 Channels PCI Interface - 12 HDD - Western Digital Raptor 74 GB - 160 (optional) Case - Antec Solo Black/Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - 80 PSU - Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply - 70 Total = 1013 (1173w HDD) im looking for cheaper mobo for overclocking ill wait till nvidia releases their core2 duo compatible boards i guess, it will be a while till i get ahold of that CPU anyway. If you see any flaws or any ways to get same performance for cheaper or how to get these components for cheaper please post. *edit* oh yeah, what are the overclocking capabilites of this build? More about : core duo build comment Penguin21512 July 24, 2006 11:24:31 PM I personally think going for maybe a cheaper mobo, and going for a better CPU would work good. ikjadoon July 25, 2006 1:06:52 AM Also, the raptor is *not* worth it. Go get a much cheaper 320GB Perpendicular Recording drive, which may not be as fast as a Raptor, but a good bit faster than the other 7.2K drives out there. I know little, if anything, on Core 2 Duo, but it looks good to me. Have you thought about a 7900GT? ~Ibrahim~ Can't find your answer ? Ask !
