I am willing to spend up to CAD $2000 (US $1700) on a new machine. I'm a web designer/developer, and have just recently signed up to this forum, and read some posts on overclocking the E6600 and the numbers people were getting. I am probably looking at going up to a stable 3.4 ghz and am open to getting aftermarket air cooling. I also really don't like elaborate or alien looking cases, and like very simple, plain cases. I would love to hear some suggestions on how I should spend my money to achieve the best system for my needs.
Here are the specs I was looking at getting:
MB: P5B deluxe with wifi
ram: corsair twin 2Gig 6400C4
vid: hopefully 8800 gtx if budget permits
PS: antec true control II 550
HD: seagate 250 or 320
sound: x-fi platinum
case and aftermarket cooling: no idea
thanks a lot for any suggestions and recommendations.
