Thanks for your previous help with my build. After taking every comment into consideration, here is what I have come up with for my first overclock pc. My original budget was 650 but the current build tops out at 710. If there is any possible way I can lower this, please let me know. I am amped to do my first o/c. Once again, any suggestions are more than welcome.
Thanks in advance.
(The previous thread had become too long, so I modified my list in accordance to those suggestions and decided to start a fresh thread )
- For the time being, I will be doing some light gaming and video processing, but mostly java development using eclipse, jboss e.t.c
- I need to get an nvidia card primarily because of developement purposes (I use linux as my environment), and I have
had bad luck in the past with ati cards (i currently have an ati card, agp though)
- I will also be running a media server (winamp in windows xp)
I will probably be upgrading the video card in about 6-7 months and possibly get an 8800gt(s/x) an sell the current selection to a friend who does not do any gaming on his computer (hence the current selection).
Depending on what kind of java programming, if it's database programming, you want more ram & faster harddisks. The harddisk link you posted links to an 80gb. I'd get seagate 7200.11 or even a raid setup.
