Hi, im building my first system, and I was hoping to get some feedback fr experienced builders out here. I need a pc that will last me for 3-4 yrs, and good enough to handle multiple applications (photoshop, firefox. powerpoint...) and run modern games (ut3, supreme commander, FEAR...) relatively well (med to high settings). My budget is ~ $1000. I live in Canada so newegg is not an option for me .
Here is what I have so far:
Q6600 (G0)- plan to OC to 3.6ghz- $260
Abit ip35 pro- $190
Crucial ballistix tracer 2x1g- $85
OCZ gameXtreme 700w $120
Thermaltake ultra 120 extreme + 3x120mm scythe fans+ shin-etsu x23- $85
Seagate Barracuda 500gb, 7200rpm, 32mb cache $116
Galaxy Geforce 8800GT Overclocked 600MHZ 512MB 2.0GHZ, PCI-E $230
My old pc just died out on me and I need to get a new one FAST...
Any feedback, comments, suggestions would be greatly appreciated
