Gonna hit buy soon this is going to me my budget gamer build. First time building a computer so want oppinions on my final thought. I want options for future upgrades why i went with 2.0 pci express board unless you guys dont think it will matter in a few years.
I also want to get into learning how too Over cloak and stuff. Im working around my 3 year old system which has 3 fans already in it.
Thanks for all the help guys so i need to install vista with 2 gigs at first, i never read about this. Can i just install it with the 2 gigs in then after its all up and runnign put the other 2 gigs in?
I just rolled out Vista Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 1 on my PC last weekend with a FULL 4gigs of DDR2 installed without any issues whatsoever. I believe they have the4 gig issue ironed out.
My system in case you're wondering is a:
Core 2 Quad Q6600 OC'd to 3.3ghz
2x2GB OCZ Reaper DDR2 Ram 1066 @ 1150 5-5-5-15 (These are timings)
EVGA 680i SLI motherboard
Antec P182 SE Case
PCP&Cooling Silencer 750 quad power supply.
2 9800GTX's in SLI
I disagree with what's been said of the 750i Evga motherboard by previous posters. Its a great product!! I've been using SLI since the 7800GTX's with Nvidia Chipsets and have had no problems and excellent performance.
