1 vid card is plenty. That memory will clock higher than you will ever even try to clock that quad. It has good timings, and it's micron D9 chips. The heatsink is a bargain seeing how that cpu is oem, and there's ten dollar rebate on the heatsink.

get the gtx 280 and a good 700w psu. it will surely kick butt. driver improvements do alot.
June 18, 2008 10:37:11 AM

dont get an aftermarket cooler unless ur ocing. a good one if u want low temps is ACF7P even if u oc. just buy AS5, dont get the Xigmatek, its install is difficult unless u want to oc or really low temps. p35 chipset are cheaper and basicly the same oc. get a ga-p45-ds3l for 90. good price. PCP&C 610W is plenty if u dont get a 9800gx2 or a gtx 280.

this 700 build from why_me is good, it pretty much says 700-800 builds kick the crap out of crippled pentium d builds for <500 with no gpu. u just owned urself why_me. just add 2400pro for that other guy and hes good.

Did you read the parts list on the first post by the topic starter? Now look at my list then look at his, the only difference that is that noticeable is the harddrive. Personaly if I was going to do it, I would run two 250GB seagates at Raid 0 and still save money.

A smart person can build a gaming rig for cheaper than the stupid person, and that cheaper rig will perfrom just as good if not better than the more expensive rig. It's called having some knowledge about builds, which apparently your lacking.

Actually. According to this site both seem to be good coolers as far as temps go.

why_me, speak for yourself. Raid is a dumb idea, too many problems even on intel chipsets. u know nothing about raid, 1 hdd is best unless ur going to use a raptor with a big drive to store data. try raid on 790i ultra and come back to talk pls. sheesh noob.
June 18, 2008 12:07:03 PM

Pls, why_me show me the savings on raiding 2 250gb vs something like a 6400aaks. I really don't like your claims on how I don't read all the posts. So pls STFU, i read em all even your annoying b1tchy ones.
