new here, first post first build ever.

well first i would like to say this is a great site pack full of great info. i have been reading and reading and reading, you know lurking around for the past week or so and i must say, this site seems to have alot of friendly good knowlegdable people willing to help out and share their experiences. turly an awsome site.

alrighty then, this is what i am thinking about getting, will more than likely order everything today. keep in mind i such a greenhorn when it comes to building a computer. i did do lots of research and think i have the best bang for my buck. i want the computer for fast everyday use, accessing data, playing with some pics type stuff. no tv video/bluray stuff, but yes with some good gaming capabilities of course. :D

well what do you guys and girls think?

i am not sure if should go this way or get a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale processor. i do want to upgrade to dual graphics cards aswell as upgrade the processor later along with adding another velociraptor. or maybe i should just think about adding another 8800gt and leave it at that for a few years then just get a new computer at that time.

thanks in advance for any and all remarks/advice/info ect..ect..ect..

  1. Looks fine to me.

    Can't go wrong with either the Q6600 or E8400.

    Only thing with the quad, you might get better cooling and stable mounting with something like the ZeroTherm 120. It cools just as good as a Tuniq. That is if it will fit in your budget.

    The Artic Cooler Freezer is good, its just I'm not a big fan on the 4 pins mount. :lol:
  2. lol, i have read about that a couple times. just did a quick lookup. for better cooling its in the budget. going to have look into it a little. thanks for the heads up.
