I'm spending around $1,800, but I can't decide whether to go AMD or Intel. I'm not an overclocker! I want this machine to run all stock, with as high of benchmarks, and play newer games as good as possible.
Well, we are going to need a little more info than that. What do you plan on doing with this machine, is it just for hard core gaming?
I'm not sure how soon you want this built, but if you can wait until July 22nd. Then Intel will have their giant price drop and you should go with them. But actually, if your budget is that large, I would just go Intel anyways. the E6700 will beat the 6000+ in pretty much everything. You can check the Tom's Charts. I'll get back to you for a mobo/memory combo.
Antec 900 truly is the bess case I've seen for what it has.
Ok one thing, dump the SLI cards sli on those is not good. For the price of those 2 you could get a 8800gtx which I highly recomend over SLI setup.
As said before the price cuts are so damn close... I think all shops are going to sell out of Q6600's when the price comes down lol. Definatly good to wait for those or if not a cheaper dual core prossessor.
From what I've been told about SLI, it's only going to do "better" for you if you run at some HUGE resolutions... 22"+ or something like that... I'm not sure, but I got some good answers in a thread I posted earlier asking about SLI. Scroll down a bit and you should be able to find it (=
