Hello I had a older topic but after deciding to not get the 8800GTS since my parents set up a budget that after trying to argue with them did not work so here it is:

CPU:Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping Kentsfield 2.40GHz-312.08

GPU:eVGA GeForce 8600GT-151.97

MOBO:GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R Motherboard-140.71

PSU: OCZ Technology OCZ OCZ600GXSSLI GamerXStream 600W Power Supply-103.05

RAM:Corsair XMS2 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit-113.66

HDD:Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS 320GB Hard Drive-86.59

CASE:Antec 900-106.16

CPU COOLER:Thermalright Ultima 90 with Scythe S-Flex Fan SFF21F Add Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - 3.5g-66.29

Grand Total:1080.51
This system is far from ready and all the price already include shiping and tax.
Budget was 900 but I think I can get some more out of my parents if I try.

Another thing I always had the question that lets say that you OC the e6750 to 3.4 GHz with Thermalright Ultima 90 with Scythe S-Flex Fan.....How long will it last before it burns or dies or is it just luck and last forever.Before you have to buy another one?

Everything looks good, but the 8600GT wont cut it. It's not really a good gaming card. I would suggest getting the X1950Pro, but that's just to hold you over. You should really try for the 8800GTS 320MB at least to play that game pretty well.

Get the 1950Pro till you can save up for a good next gen card.

Actually just put this set up together. You should consider it.

Cooler Master Centurion 5
Corsair 450W
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600 2.4GHz
Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 2GB (2 x 1GB)
XFX nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
LG Electronics GSA-H62NK 18X SATA Super Multi DVD+/-RW
Seagate ST3320620AS 320GB

Price: around $1000

Thank you Solarics........
BTW I forgot to add is it just better if I got the E6750 and OC it to 3.4 and save an extra 100$ ? Since I was planning on OC'ing the heck out of this quad in about a couple of months when this is starting to get older...

No, the Q6600 will be better and more future proof. More and more games in the future will come out with Quad core support, like crysis does. So get the Quad for future proofing and OC it to around 3.2 it'll be a beast. :D 

If you plan to oc, its better to get a nice HSF now so you don't have to remove the motherboard later. You can get the 6750 if you plan to upgrade the cpu later on, when the new intel ones start coming out.

Otherwise, get the Quad and a nice hsf, like a thermalright Ultra 120.

Oh I started it around 6 months ago. Getting a website finished in a few weeks so that will make things better and easier for people. I'm in Michigan.

I through paypals business account, since it lets people pay through paypal as well as through credit cards and all that. Plus it insures everything, so that works out well.

Didn't know we could advertise a business in the forums? I know there used to be a guy that profusely did it and I don't see him any more. Hope that doesn't happen again.
