I think ive decided to go for a E8400 CPU and 2 8800GT in SLI. Its going to be used for a gaming-PC with
a resolution of 1920*1200.
If this is a bad idea NOW is the time where I would really appreciate it if you tell me. I can wait for a
couple of weeks but not more than that.
Anyway, I have no idea what else to put in the machine. So im looking for advice on all kinds of hardware
(Motherboard, Harddiscs, RAM etc etc.)
At that resolution... It's a good call. Just make sure you have proper cooling for the GT's. They tend to get hot and if they have the stock OEM cooler they heat up pretty well. I'd look at models that have a better cooling solution.
Good CPU choice.
Hard drives: Seagate 7200.11 or ES.2 drives (they have a 32MB cache
and run all but with a raptor, but with a lower price tag)
Ram: If you are running stock you can stick with PC6400 as a standard. If you want to overclock I'd go with PC8500.
Motherboard; I'd say a 750i or 780i mobo, I like ASUS to tell you the truth, they are pricy though, but solid.
Thanks for the answers - man this is the most difficult task ive ever had
Ive been looking at some components - how does this looks like (sorry about the danish links, I think you'll be able to understand them though :
