Well I am considering to make a new build. It will be based for gaming. I've pretty much decided what components I want but I do have some concerns. I was torn to go between a E6750 or a Q6600 but I've decided to go with the E6750 because it will be good enough for gaming for at least a few years (I hope?). I have a budget of $800-900 and my conern is Gaming and Future Proof. Following are a list of parts that I have that are open to suggestion with the concerns I have.
Thanx heh. Yea I'ma stick with Duo for the time being. I stayed with the proc
Changed the ram to timing of 4-5-4-11
The motherboard is a prob though. I read reviews for that one and apparently there's probs with clocking a Quad and I want it futureproof. I looked at the ASUS equivalanet (love ASUS) and there's probs with their bios or somethin.
I would like it to be good at OCin and for SLI as I do plan to put a second card in someday. Any suggestions for a good board?
I decided to go with an EVGA 680i SLI board. nd I was also considerin goin with an 8600 over a 7950 but I've read test comparisons and in almost every game the 7950 outperforms the 8600 even though its dx9. Why? There's power behind it, as opposed to the 8600. So I'll prob get a 7950 then sli then 8800 if not directly to an 8800 less yall can convince me otherwise.
I'm thinking of building a similar system, and have similar concerns about it being future proof. Mazier, you suggested alternative motherboards if SLI wasn't important. Would the gigabyte board (P35 DS3R) be the best choice because it's compatible with DDR3 memory, as well as current DDR2? It seems as though that would be the best choice for the future, however I've also read that it's debatable as to whether DDR3 will even take off and be a success.
The Corsair 520W is over $100 :\, I could afford the StealthXStream if I bump some of my other important components down by like 20 bucks, thats why I wanna go with the Ultra cause it's cheap and appears that it could handle an SLI rig.
