My present PC is now 3.5 years old. I built it myself and it was a pretty high end system way back then but it's been getting a little long in the tooth. So I've been drooling over the idea of a quad core system for months. I finally just ordered my new build and I'm sooo freakin' psyched! I can't wait to get everything and hopefully a bunch of free time to put it all together. Here's what I got...
Asus P5K Premium mobo... "Aargh Matey! 'Tis The Black Pearl Edition!"
2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 1066
ATI X1950Pro 512MB PCI-E (Hey, it was only $153!)
Scythe Infinity HSF (It's a MONSTER)
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad "Crossfire Edition" PSU
I'm using my old...
Samsung 500GB SATA2 HDD
Hitachi 160GB SATA HDD
SB Audigy 2ZS
Plextor PX-712 DVD-R/W
SilverStone TJ02 case
Some other stuff, blah blah blah
I've already received my Q6600, P5K Premium "Black Pearl Edition" and Crucial Ballistix. That motherboard is sooo PRETTY! Oh my god, I was drooling over it. All that copper gave me a giant woody! I think I'm going to sleep with it tonight... [#3800c6][#4600b8]
I can assume that you are maybe considering upgrading the graphics card in the near future, I mean the rest of your system just outruns it dramatically!
Yeah, it took me a long time to save up for this gear. I went with the X1950Pro because I haven't been gaming as much as I used to, it was a STEAL at $153 and because I couldn't stomach spending $500+ on a high end DX10 card. I DO want to get a killer card in the future but it just wasn't a priority for me now. THANKS for all the replies guys! It might be a while before I get the time/chance to put her together but I'll post pics when I do.
