RADIO_ACTIVE August 7, 2008 7:24:47 PM BTW I know you won't overlock. But the E8400 OWNS at OCing. spaul2681 August 8, 2008 12:45:36 PM RADIO_ACTIVE said:BTW I know you won't overlock. But the E8400 OWNS at OCing. I would not be overclocking my rig. I just need a decent rig which would run my pc games with minimum upgrades for the next 1-2 years. That's why I am planning for : Processor - E8400 CPU cooling - CM Sphere (RR-CCZ-LL12-GP) M/b - Asus P5Q Pro Graphic card - 8800GT RAM - 2-4 GB (800MHz - DDR2) SMPS - Cooler Master 650W (already bought) - Good power! Cabinet - (already bought) Zebronics (Bijli - 1* 120 MM forward fan, 2*80MM side fans) - I have space for one more 120 MM fan in the back, I think I would be fixing that too just to be sure. I think this should suffice, but then again there is always room for improvement and new ideas! So do suggest changes/ improvements. auscanzukus August 8, 2008 1:24:12 PM Good selection. Be sure to get 4 gigs or as much as you plan to use in the future cuz when Nehalem is rolled out next month, ddr2 prices may start to go up. ddr3 prices is under 100 bucks for 2 gigs. was over $200 months ago.
