Building 2 systems, first time builder. Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: December 30, 2006 3:30 PM in Systems Share Roamaar December 30, 2006 2:28:35 PM First system has a large budget. This is what I have Grabbed so far. Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6600 - BX80557E6600 - Box CPU - Socket LGA775 Motherboard: P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP NVIDIA® nForce™ 590 SLI™ Intel® Edition Socket LGA775 ATX Motherboard Power Supply: SILVERSTONE SST-ST60F ATX 600W Power Supply Memory: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Graphics Card: BFG Tech BFGR88768GTXE GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250820AS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive CD-Rom: LITE-ON Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM ATAPI/E-IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model SHD-16P1S That estimated total is around 1500-1600. I couldn't decide on a mobo, Ive heard the 680i's have been giving a lot of people problems. This computer is mostly for gaming / heavy multitasking. ============================================== The 2nd one I am building has a shorter budge of 700-900, this is what I have so far. Again, unsure of the mobo. I went with the P5N32. Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6400 - BX80557E6400 Mother Board: Asus P5NSLI NVIDIA® nForce™ 570 SLI™ Memory: Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Graphics Card: XFX PVT71GUQF3 GeForce 7900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card Power Supply: Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply Esitmated total about 800. This is a gaming computer. Any ideas or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated. I plan on start getting the parts for these 2 early next week. Thanks for all your help.

This is a really good deal for $50, and it's much more stable then that rosewill one. Are you going to be oc'ing either of the systems? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
