EDIT: UPDATED ALL PARTS

Hi, I am going to order parts for a new computer either tommorow or the day after. These are the current parts I have selected. I already have a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, OS and CD/DVD drives. I want this computer to last about four-five years (excluding potential update, RAM, graphics card, etc.) PLEASE POINT OUT ANY FLAWS OR WEAKNESSES that you notice. I openly accept negative criticism. Also, if you see any part where I am getting ripped off or can get a better deal, please tell me. I plan to use this computer for gaming, and I do plan to overclock a little bit. Thanks in advance.

From personal experience. I'd ditch the WD hard drive, everyone of them save 2 have had extremely poor longevity... I would go for:

yeah that would be fine and cut some cost to boot... Others may not share the WD boycott that I do.. :D 

If its for gaming, I use a raptor HD which is one of the few quality WD drives... Other than that the build looks pretty good..
December 3, 2006 7:17:32 AM

I had a WD 80gb die on me - and wouldnt recommend them!

Check the warranty on the WD's, then check the warranty on Seagate. Personally I don't care. (but I only have seagates....)

250$ after mail in rebate.... Not too much more for a much better quality product... Depends on your financial situation but I switched my RAM from G. Skill because of all the Dead on Arrivals that I had read about them.
December 3, 2006 7:32:29 AM

Actually, I am kinda tight on money... Trying to keep it under 1000, otherwise I would get CD/DVD drives and better graphics card.

OK, replaced the G.Skill 2gb ddr2 pc800 6400 ram

with

Its 15 dollars more, is it worth it?
December 3, 2006 8:09:18 AM

I'd say it would be worth the 15$.
December 3, 2006 8:28:59 AM

That PSU doesn't have even one PCI-E power connector. But then again, I'm not really a video card expert, and can't tell if the 7600GT would need it.

On the other hand, if you EVER intend to upgrade the video card in this system, you'll most definitely want a PSU with one or more PCI-E power connectors.

Also, ASUS and OCZ aren't very friendly with each other. G.Skill and Corsair are both good...not sure on Super Talent. I mean, not that it's bad, per se, I just don't know how well it works with ASUS. As far as DOAs go...so ship it back, and have it replaced. It's not THAT big of a deal. Unless more than 50% of em are DOA... But I think personally I'd go for Corsair.

I have to agree with you guys about WD drives, Manmadegod and steveh2001.

EDIT: Typo.
December 3, 2006 3:42:37 PM

can you recommend a PSU that will have 2pci-e cords, and that will work well for a good 3-4 years?

Under $100 preferably.
December 3, 2006 4:11:47 PM

If you are on a budtet, can you afford the xfx 7600gt, it is clocked at 590/1600, which is a hell of a lot faster than teh evga, and only about 20 more

As for the ram, since you have a conroe, go for ocz, that is the cheapest solution that will give you good results with conroe, you just need to make sure the voltage is at 2.1. Because you can run your conroe probably at a fsb of close to 500 if you get a better motherboard, and at that point you need your ram at 1:1, meaning that timings won't matter too much, so you will save money that way.

As for everything else, they seem pretty good
December 3, 2006 4:15:21 PM

under a hundred for a good psu? easy. a nice one is the hiper type R I believe, 90 or so, modular 580w, and support for sli
Also rosewill is offering a couple of really cheap 500w psu's at newegg
December 3, 2006 4:20:57 PM

They do, but as I said, you will need to raise the voltage of the ram to 2.1 and it will boot, and I said xfx 7600gt, the cards you should are nice, but the xfx is better performance for the price

There are better choices in motherboards than the vanilla P5B. If you want to stick with an Asus MB at least get the P5B-E version.
You could also consider getting GIGABYTE GA-965P-S3, ABIT AB9 P965 or MSI P965 Platinum.

a good combination?
December 3, 2006 5:35:47 PM

I don't know about better, but they are about the same, because ati is better with catalist drivers, yet the 7600gt is clocked far higher, and that will give you better performance considering the gpu engines are at about the same level
So I would go with the 7600gt and use the money on an aftermarket fan like the tuniq tower or something like that or a thermalright h3 for the 7600gt

I say get the gigabyte P965 DS3 134$ and a good OCer for that E6400. and keep with the corsair 1gb 800mhz if you on a buget dont spend 100+ for only 1gb more, 1gb will serve you fine.

Just remember, I don't like to hurt people's feelings, but these are my thoughts at it


For one thing, I think some of the people here are money loaded and think because you got a conroe, you should get the most expensive parts one the market
Secondly, it does look like some of these things have not been thought out, for instance just because a part is cheaper or more expensive does not mean how good it is, like the video card thing
Third, some people might be against you because they think you are newbish

These are just some of the main reasons, but I rated your build a four, it does not look that ba, just could use a bit of tweaking that is all, like there are some things hat you should not cheap out of like motherboards and ram, but there are others that you can spend 10 on like a case.
Just keep it simple to save money, and buy a nice motherboad, ram, then buy the other upgraded versions later, that will get you a more satisfying build instead of trying to balance everything into one thing that is affordable

Yeah I agree with the psu, not the best but is for a budget (I recommended it myself earlier in the thread)
But a x1900gt is a hell of a lot more expensive then a nice 7600gt with a rebate ending at a 100, you have to consider budgets when recommending parts

Edit:wow, my mistake, at 160, the x1900gt doesn't seem bad, but I think that it is better to save the money and get the 7600gt, that way with the money saved, add another 40, and it will be possible to sli the card, which is better than one x1900gt
December 3, 2006 6:18:18 PM

What RAM do you suggest then, both 1gb and 2gb?

And what PSU do you suggest that will be durable and well, good?

I think I am going to go with the x1900gt since I am not going to get a new card 3 or 4 years after I buy computer, so I might as well get a better one now.
December 3, 2006 6:26:36 PM

Alright, as I said, the ocz ram is amazing for the price, you just need to up the voltage to 2.1, ask any of the DaClan members and they will tell you ocz for price/performance.

then using the money you saved from not buying corsair, I suggest buying the evga 680i board, it is almost as good as the striker extreme and far better than the P5B, so that would make a good investment

I still would say go for the 7600gt, as you can get two gigs of ram instead of one with the money you save, and it will be cheap to sli the card later (ram is more crucial in most games at lower resolutions any way-I call lower resolutions anything below 1600x1200, and you could probably hit 1900x1200 with sli 7600gt's, but I doubt with one x1900gt)

AS for the psu, the rosewill is actually pretty good, it probably won't be able to support the x1900gt if you get that, or sli 7600gt's, but with one 7600gt and an overclocked 6400 with 2gb ram, it should be sufficient and a really fast build

A bit more expensive than you plan, but this is a far better build for the price if you overclock your 6400 (if you don't you might as well get a D960 instead)

If don't like what I am telling you, ask any of the DaClan members and they will probably tell you something similar, and they know a lot more than I do (I hope to get in later on)
December 3, 2006 6:29:49 PM

yeah, that corsair pro is actually really good ram, it will handle high fsbs with good timings, though a bit more than ocz, it offers better performance
December 3, 2006 6:39:27 PM

Ow, that mobo really hikes up the price. I am not looking to OC to the maximum, just a moderate amount. Any other suggestions for mobo that would be just a little bit cheaper?

The switch from
G.Skill 2gb
x1900 pro
Gigabyte DB3 (or whatever) mobo

to

OCZ 2gb
XFX 7600gt
evga 680i board

is almost $100.
December 3, 2006 6:50:58 PM

That is what I am talking about, you will have to give up some of things like a cm case for a random no name 10 case, and other niceties, then upgrade that stuff later, because motherboards do make a huge difference, even if you don't oc much.

I tried going the same way you are on my first build, and it was a disaster, my motherboard got fired without oc at all, not to mention it was very instable most of the time, but since I have an amd, motherboards make more of a difference in stability because of the integrated mem controller.
Since intel uses a northbridge and south bridge to control the memory, choosing the right motherboard will also affect your performance

Oh, and the pro version of the x1900 is actually worse than the 7600gt, which clocked higher than the gt version (the pro version is the really basic, crappy engine version of ati cards)

You can go with the cheaper build if you want, but I think you shall get a lot better performance and stability with some cheap ocz platinum or gold (usually about 200 after rebate) and the better mobo then with the cheaper combination

Also, I guarantee you, you will want to oc later on and will be wishing you bought the better board in the long run, everybody that has a conroe starts with a mild oc, then tries to hit 4ghz, I can tell you that from simply watching half the threads here
December 3, 2006 6:53:23 PM

Well between the two boards, the difference is $110. Are there any other boards that are better than my initial choice, that are only like $50-60 more expensive?
December 3, 2006 6:55:19 PM

I wouldrecomand for the hard drive a seagate barracuda, and for a mobo dont take the p5b ( simple edition) take p5b deluxe or a gygabyte ds3

I already made both those changes, but thanks for the feedback.
December 3, 2006 7:03:31 PM

the ds3 is not a bad choice, but in that case of only 50-60 more, wait for the rd600 to come out in a month or so
ECS is a company that makes boards that have less features, but at much better prices, I bet you could either buy the ecs 680i board, but even better would be a ecs rd600 board, that will probably actually be better than the evga due to the northbridge being important for intel cpus
December 3, 2006 7:09:22 PM

What is better timing for the DS3 mobo:

4-4-4-12

or

5-5-5-12

There are two different Corsair XMS2 DDR2 PC800 6400 2x1 GB at the same price with those timings. Which one would work better on the DS3?
I have no idea what those numbers mean...

I would spend a little more money on the case.
Something a little sturdier and more than one 120mm fan for premium air flow.
The power supply for future upgrades and stability.
The ram has already been addressed here.
The graphics card is fine. The X1900gt will oc a little for much better results than the 7600GT but the 7600 is still a good mid grade choice.
I know your on a budget but consider a better quality motherboard
P5w DH or p5b deluxe wifi.
Hard drives???
I have crashed them all.
Currently have the segate as a favorite
December 3, 2006 7:13:35 PM

I disagree on the case, for a budget person, buying a high quality case comes after the inital build, so a better mobo/ram combination can be achieved
The lower priced G.Skills are sh!t for overclocking even a few mhz, so think the money should be spent on some cheap ocz and a nice mobo, either the nvidia 680i or the rd600 (which will be far better) when it comes out

For the PSU, are you saying that the Rosewill one I picked is fine?
And for the mobo you are talking about the ds3 that i selected right? Suggestions for mobo would help too.
And case, can I have some suggestions :) ? I also would like it around 17.2 inches high.

THANKS TO EVERYONE ONCE AGAIN!

Fair enough.
I had that case and the air flow was lacking.
very important to keep that investment cool.
I agree about the G.skill.
the corsair value select out performs the G.Skill :) 
even the Patriot signature runs ddr2 800 but at 5 5 5 15.
it will run cl4 with 2.35volts but gets hot.
I wont comment on the Ds3 board.(I'm an Asus person) :)

Looks better.
if you want room you could always buy the E6300 and upgrade later .
youll still be pleased with the oc capability of the E6300 with that P5B Deluxe.
other than that it looks nice.
wait for the others to comment if they will.
One opinion wont cut it.
