hi all this is my first post!!
i would like to know if its worth connecting an xpertvision 8600gt and an points of view 7600gt? im on a tight budget at the moment and building new gaming/media pc, at moment have order a asus p5n-d mb, 600w psu, i-cute case, 2gb ram and will be ordering an e8200 cpu. the graphics card is the last thing im buying
If you are building a gaming PC stick with a gaming card. The 8600's are not gaming cards, they are better for home theater and general graphics. VERY light gaming they would be ok in some games. As dev1se said, a 8800gs, or 9600gt would be a good entry card for gaming.
Sli won't work with 2 diffent cards, they must be identical. Not sure what PSu you are looking at but don't buy cheap. If it goes you can take other stuff with it. I learn that once.
Buy a Intel Pentium Dual Core CPU with 800mhz FSB £45+
Any Intel / Gigabyte Motherboard with 1333mhz FSB £60+
2GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 RAM 800mhz £40-5-
450-550W PSU from reputable brand £40-50
GeForce 9600GT 512mb Graphics Card £100
The CPU will be able to overclock to 3GHZ with ease using the Gigabytes intelligent Voltage control in the BIOS... basically, Overclocking for chimps.
If you want a PC you'll be happy with, then thats the bare minimum to go for at the minute... It'll handle anything you throw at it for quite some time.
