Greetings,

After days of thinking and thanks to your help guys. I've ended up with this system. Unfortunately, I can't buy from newegg.com so I had to use amazon.com instead.

1. EVGA 8800 GTS 512 G92 nVidia card http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00114O9E...

2. Corsair 620w HX PSU
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000I54FG...

3. Xfi Xtreme Gamer fatal1ty Platinum sound card
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000QYBIC...

4. 2 x2GB OCZ 800mz RAM
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000XBO22...

5. ASUS P5K - OR - GIGABYTE P35 DS3L Motherboard

6. AURORA GIGABYTE Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

7. WD 500gb 7200rpm HD SATA

8. Samsung SATA DVD

9. 22" Flatron LG monitor

10. E6750 Processor (2.66 core 2 duo)


a. I just need help picking the best motherboard, as you can see I don't use SLI/Xfire.

b. I also want to know if I need to buy fans for that case. If yes, tell me which kind and what type that would fit?

c. Is my RAM good?


Note that I can only buy from amazon.com since I live abroad. Thank you :)

What kind of processor are you looking at, or do you already have one?

Ahh forgot to add the CPU. I'm getting a E6750 (or E6850) I dont need to decide on these since I can buy them here.

Can someone tell me if I need to buy better fans and if my system is compatible?

I already explained I can't buy form newegg.com :(  I don't have an American Credit card. I am very satisfied with amazon I just want to know if my system is good and whether I need to buy fans for my case?

you will find better deals than neweggs at pricegrabber.com. I usually save about $80 at pricegrabber.com when building high end systems. Im also luck that I live 1 block away from newegg warehouse, I dont have to order
online :)

Your orginal post said nothing about living abroad, but that's ok, I agree check pricegrabber. I've only done one build with a different gigabyte case, don't know about the fans, that is something you can do after you build. Good luck.
