Man that will be frickin' fast! Do you really need a $210 case though? 8O

I had the IDE version of that burrner and it is no faster than the $35 BenQ drive I have now, plus I had to RMA that plextor twice in the year that I owned it. Going with something else can save you $100.

ah sweet thx for the tip :) , any other parts i need to switch or what? does everything look ok or?

* btw i need to switch my mobo because i wasted money having it come with a built in sound card.. so can someone suggest to me a really good mobo that is really user friendly and will allow me to oc without problems?

Netburst Pentium D 800 series ... yes.

Core 2 Duo ..... HELL NO !!!!!

Motherboardwise .... you do have a point there. People are achieving staggering fsb numbers on their mobos with conroes, which is really unhealthy to the mobos to say the least, especially when used for extended periods of time. Especially with these new vertically-cooled heatsinks that are growing in popularity which don't provide enough airflow (if at all) to the mobo components like the voltage regulators around the cpu socket.

I wouldn't worry about heat too much.
Just make sure ya get a mobo with passive cooling for Northbridge.
Also get a nice aluminam HSF for cpu.
conroe=much cooler than the Pent D.
At first I thought all your prices were way high then noticed it was in canadian play money(I'm joking but can't do conversion in head)
I think prices might be able to get elsewhere lower but I understand the concept of buying all from one site.
Also is there a reason for $200 audio card?
If your going to hook up to amp/subs/sweet surround system really loud perhaps.
But generally most cheap SB/a lot of onboard have pretty nice sound where you won't notice a differance unless your an audi junkie.
August 8, 2006 3:44:08 AM

ah so i could ditch the sound card, get a cheaper dvd drive, get a cheaper case (maybe that armor one), then that leaves me with some cash to go sli perhaps?
August 8, 2006 5:29:01 AM

K man, i think you have a lot of over the top parts for no reason. First case... get this, it's what i'm getting.Aerocool extremeengine 3t, second, thats crazy ram, maybe get the c4 version for like 200 less. Third, raptors are expensive but whatever lol, um fourth, maybe get an x1900xt, better quality, and cheaper, fifth, i don't know if you need a front access for your sound but maybe get an extreme music, or maybe an auzentech x-plosion if you have z-5500 or close to speakers. Good deal on xtreme music right now. Thats it. Is that all your getting? i guess you are recycling the rest or something. No monitor?
August 8, 2006 5:36:03 AM

yea ill be using my old 21" monitor, and my altec lansing speakers (the nice ones), as well as my keyboard, and mx518 mouse... and btw i think ur right there is no need for the sound card anyways because i think that mobo i listed includes a sound card as far as i know... im also going to change my dvd drive to a cheaper one beacuse someone said before that it was a waste. and finally that case u gave a link to looks kick ass and its got 2 huge fan ports :) , so ill prob look into getting that one, thx :D

no problem. I'm buying a pc on ncix too, for about the same price, but a whole sysetm including monitor and speakers, windows and g5 mouse 8) and g15 keyboard 8) lol. Hey btw is that price before shiping and tax?

also, you should still get a sound card, but not an uber one, get the extreme music or auzentech for like $140. :wink:
August 8, 2006 6:15:10 AM

as far as i know thats before tax :(  but if ur by any chance near a NCIX store depending on where u live you can pay in cash and get it tax free :D  unless they have changed that policy..

why are u getting so much stuff?? like why are u getting 2 mice? but sweet pc :D  , though may i inquire as to why u arent getting a conroe? like if u got a E6600 u could oc it to 3 ghz and then basically its like you just made $800 because ur cpu is now better than a X6800 :D ..

two mice? 8O lol, i think you mistook my LED mouse pad with 4 usb 2.0 ports as a mouse. lol... anyway i'm not getting conroe because i think amd has a better future, and in that future will be an AM3 cpu to throw in this rig along with another amazing video card. 8)

btw i'm getting everything, like monitor mouse, lol mouse pad, cause my computer is a p2 thats 9 years old.. p2 366mhz.
August 8, 2006 6:43:03 AM

ah ic, i also agree AMD has a better future and i cant wait to see what they do with their next big release... but thats whats causing me a problem right now.. i dont know what i should do, wait dont wait how long to wait, etc.. :( 
August 8, 2006 6:52:59 AM

Ya, i 've waited a long time too.... not just the 9 years but also i was going to buy a s939 system back in february... glad i didn't, getting a much better pc and upgradeability for almost the same price.

I wouldn't worry about dx10 or vista too much right now. I wouldn't even worry about quad core cuz that will have a premium and won't be opitimzed yet. If i were you i'd get whatever you need to do what you want NOW and make sure you have a good upgrade path so you can upgrade in 1-2 years, and give your pc an extra couple years. 8)
August 8, 2006 4:36:13 PM

You're rich. That's what I thought when I looked at your PC.

I dont think anyone mentioned it, the Raptor X has a Window, im pretty sure you can egt without a window!, I dont know of anyway you could look thru that window!, drop de premium for that and it'll be sweet!

ya i didn't even notice that... the raptor x is novelty,how could you see it unless you've got it unattached from the case and hold it in your hand to look at it? And even with the odd chance you CAN see it spinning form outside the case... you can't since that case has a solide side. Ditch the X.
August 9, 2006 1:33:45 AM

ok, id suggest get an x1900xt, it has a better image quality, and it has 48 pixelshaders, i am hoping those are canadian dollars, right? or american dollars? because that much for a 7900gtx is murder.. steal, for that much u can get urself a hitman.. *lame*, so yeah very nice.. just change the GPU, this should be under GENERAL HOMEBUILT not CPU's .. very nice CPU by the way
