Well just looking at what u guys think about it maybe some suggestions also.
I was thinking of hopefully hitting 3.2ghz on the cpu and gracefully overclocking that gpu also. I plan on lapping the cpu.
Anyone know if u can run cpu/ram on a 1:1 ratio with this setup? Also anyone know how good that gpu heatsink is.. Im mainly going for Super quiet pc thats why i got the heatsinks i did i know there is better im sure but they provide silence.
You don't need that expensive of a PSU for an 8600. You could get by with a corsair 420 watt. (Or whatever their PSU in the 400 watt range is) If I were you I would cut down to a corsair 520/500 watt PSU and get an 8800gt.
Also if you want silence a raptor is a no-no.
Are you sure you need a $300 some dollar case? I would downscale to an Antec 182 or 190. Both are very silent but also have good cooling.
And as already said, you don't need that expensive of a motherboard.
Another thing is you can get a cpu heatsink that has uses an attachable fan (Thermalright ultra 120, Tuniq tower) and it will be as quiet as the fan. (You can get dead quit fans, some as low as 10db.)
lol how do you go from spending so much money on a mobo/psu/case then gimping on the cpu and graphic card....ditch the e21xx get a E67 or E6850 if you really got cash in ur hands. Just get a P35 ds3-R instead of the Asus ( They're overpriced ) and go lower to like a antec 900 case + 620 corsair psu. 8800gt > 8600 if your into gaming. Stock cpu cooler is good, if your not into OC'ing..3 ghz will do u well as is but if your willing to reach 3.6-3.7 ghz get an aftermarket like a freezer 7 pro would do justice.
Oh thanks for all the suggestions but this cpu and video card was just something to hold me over till march.. I dont have anything really pc wise so i didnt wana miss out on crysis.
I was thinking by picking the psu that id be able to upgrade also, admitted the mobo might be a little over kill. Im really trying to build highend rig on a budget and using some stuff to hold me over.
As for the case, (which i already have) its literally perfect i cant complain abit about it..airflow is crazy..best ive seen in a case imho.
I was just gona overclock the crap outa the cpu and gpu for now and wait till i have more saved up.
I totally agree though if u arrange the budget a little different you can get a much better computer for mid/sub highend rig.
