Would this be a good setup? This was around the budget i could afford , which is around 1500$ can.
I would like to overclock, and was wondering if the cooling/fans are enough, or i should add some extra fans.
Any suggestions to optimize the computer better for a better price/performance would also be very appreciated.
I also would like to get a dx10 card, but maybe a while after they are released. Should i stick with the 7900 gs, or would downgrading to a 7600 gt be a better choice? I think the 7600 gt is about 50$ cheaper then the 7900 gs
another choice would be to get patriot signature memory @ 667 and run it at 800, it would be 100$ cheaper, would it give a nearly equivalent performance as the mushkin?
Seems like a really good setup.
But I think you would be better off with any DDR2 800 with 4-4-4-12 timings seens these indicates that theyre using Micron chips, wich are really good for overclocking.
Also, idk if its within your budget but you should take a look at the OCZ GameXstream 600W OCZ600GXSSLI this is one of the best PSUs ive seen in a long time, Quad 12v rails, PFC, high efficency and it looks good in your case.
Hmm, here this Crucial Technology Ballistix 2GB kit DDR2-800 is the lowest price in the entire internet I believe.
In these days it wont get any better than that so better hurry up, and dont let anyone know this little secret ssh!! lol
If you can, ild recommend you to upgrade to the MSI 7900GT, I think its really worth the ~$40 more.
With these two extra toys youll have a very overclockable enviable system!
I dont think you'll need that other fan that goes behind the HDD's. I just have the one on the back and the psu venting out. This 6300 doesn't really run hot. Tha sonata case came w/ some kinda black duct thingy. I think it hurts cooling more than helping so i left it out. The case is pretty quiet too. I recommend it. Takes a bit of getting used to, with the door covering the disk drives.
