Planning a game machine....please spare ur opinion.
Feb 9, 2007, 12:55 AM
I have read around a bit before coming to this conclusion. Basically this computer is mainly for game. I've never OCed before, but will oc lightly (e6600 around 3.0~ or so).
Here are the parts:
Case: Antec p180 (I heard it's quiet and has good airflow. That's what I want)
Power Supply: Antec NeoPower NeoHE 550 ATX12V 550W.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6600
Cooler: Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm
(I heard this one is really quiet)
Mobo: ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i
Memory: G.SKILL 2GB PC2-6400
Or This Corsair
Video Card: BFG 8800gts OC
Artic Silver 5:
As I stated above. I will learn how to oc this e6600 up to 3.2~ or maybe more depend on how it'll go.
Basically I want a stable and quiet rig.
saving money for dell 2407 monitor.
Thank you in advance and please give me some advice like problems I might get with this combination.
