Thx for that quick reply...going to check those things out
another question came up
can i put AGEIA PhysX card on that board ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS....i mean like does it have a spot for it...and if it does...graphic cards wont take its space away? (i'w heared that there r some cases where graphics just too big and will take away AGEIA's space)
P6N > P5N. The Asus P5N is a great board but the MSI one is just a little better, in my opinin.
However, if i were you i'd get a cheapo board now (such as a 650i sli board) and wait until Intel releases the X48 chipset which will be much better and more fully featured (native support for 400FSB, ddr3 etc) than today's boards. Although you will need DDR3 to use that board. Others may disagree with me, but hey that's just life!
I also suggest considering DDR3, as it'll soon be the standard. Please, for the love of god, don't waste the cash on a Physx card. Final point is that i agree about the PSU, get something like the Corsair 620 or that OCZ one.
Are you planning to overclock? If not, or not much, you don't need an aftermarket CPU cooler, the stock cooler is fine.
The Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme is the best cooler out there. If you want to overclock a lot then buy it, add a SFF21F fan to it, maybe also change the RAM to DDR2-1066. It's huge, so make sure it fits in your Aerocool before you buy. If it doesn't, switch to Antec 900.
Some intermediate solutions that do well in reviews as far as noise and performance: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro (cheap, easy to install), Scythe Ninja, Thermalright Ultima-90 (both better than the Freezer but more expensive)
place where im going to buy my PC dosent seem to have PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W PSU atm....but will Corsair 620 power this baby up? specs will be those:
ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS
2x Asus GeForce 8 Series EN8800GTX 768MB (SLI)
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz
Zalman CNPS9700 NT CPU Cooler
Aerocool Zero Degree Black
Cooler Master 120MM Blue LED Silent Sleeve Bearing Case Fan
Western Digital Caviar WD7500AAKS 750GB
2x Kingston 2GB 800MHZ DDR2 LL CL4 DIMM NVIDIA SLI-R
SAMSUNG SH-S203N/BEBN DVD-/+RW Lightscribe
I've seen people doing 620HX+8800GTX SLI. It works. I prefer a larger margin of safety, but that's just me. Don't overclock too much, don't add lots of disks and lights, it should be fine. The 620HX is a very good PSU.
Is that case large enough for 8800GTX cards? Does it have good cooling? Look at the CoolerMaster Stacker or Silverstone TJ09 too.
I'd wait a week. The 8800 GTS 512 MB is supposed to be out Dec 11. It will be just like the 8800GTX except with less RAM and done at 65nm. That is, it will consume and heat less while giving about the same fps. It should cost less than the GTX too.
That case should be large enough for 8800GTX and about cooling....i'm going to add 1 extra 120mm fan to rear so it will be 1x120mm front, 250mm fan on side and 1x 120mm rear should be enough? or not? not planing to add new disk or lights and about OC, going to clock CPU and videocards (not too much tho)
