I'm planning out my new rig and I need some help. I already own 2 ATI x1950 pro's which I will be Crossfiring. I plan on purchasing the Pentium D 805 and overclocking it, which should give me incredible bang for my buck. I like the the product specs on the Crossfire Xpress 3200 (8 GB/s to each GPU), but don't know if it's worth switching to an AMD. I've read that the 965 is better for overclocking, but I need the 975X to do crossfire, is this true? Do I have any other options? I would like to overclock to 4.1Ghz.
1. Which motherboard(s) (975X?) should I consider?
2. Which Memory should I go with (DDR2-533/Brand)?
3. If I watercool the cpu should I also watercool the gpu's?
You should do a hell of a lot more research if at this point in time you are still considering a D805
As seeing this is your first post and You are picking all the wrong parts, Ill get you started and say look into the Intell E6300.
