Need Stable CD26600 Custom PC

What parts would you order off of NewEgg to create a system that has the following requirements.

1. Stability
2. Game Performace
3. Modertly Priced
4. Low Heat

I have decided on a Core 2 Duo 600 so far, Also will be buying some sort of DX9 graphics card to hold me off until Vista can run games. Also shooting for 2 SATA WD 10000 drives.

The difficult to me has alsways been the CPU>Memory>Motherboard triangle.

Thanks in advance,

  1. whats your budget?
  2. E6600

    MSI 975X Platinum Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard

    Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

    thats what I would get for CPU>Memory> Mobo
  3. you have to read other posts because it's very hard to keep writing the parts to everybody(esspecialy its boring for me writing the same thing)

    Because praticly the good parts are for everything.

    You can take my rig which i use now:

    Intel Conroe E6600 at 2.88ghz
    Corsair XMS2 1gb DDR2 800
    Asus P5W Deluxe
    Thermaltake Tsunami Case
    Western Digital Raptor 150gb
    Antec NeoHe 550 watts
    Evga 7600gt CO

    Just take 2 gigs i took one cuz i was out of money :)

    Works perfect and you dont need 2x 10000 rpm hardrives one is enought trust me.Unless you cant wait 1 seconds longer because you wont see much diffrence in normal use.
  4. I like the sugegstions, im going to spend about 1K without the video card. But it sounds like you know what you guys are doing. Ihavent built a computer since a P4 2.8 heh

    not convinced. try the abits or an asus. and if ur feeling frisky, some 533 crucial ram (ct2kit12864aa53e) will hit 850mhz easy if u drop the latancy to 6-6-6-18

    latency hardly matter on intel machines. its only with the amd intergrated mem controller they make a difference.

    and a 7900gto will cover you until dirextx 10. dont waste ur money on a 7600gt. get a 7900gs and let the system strech its legs.

    and a seasonics PSU. lots of nice stable power.
