If you want to save some money, get a Q6600 and overclock it and you could get a 680i mobo.
Don't get a Rosewill PSU, they aren't very good, get Corsair or PC Power & Cooling.
With the saved money, you should upgrade to an 8800GTS 512mb.
If you need anymore help pick out the other parts just say so. Good luck!
Edit: Shadow got in before me, I would rather go with the build he posted, I was just helping you with the SLI setup but he's right, Crossfire is better than SLI right now with ATI's new cards.
haha. that was actually the mobo i was just looking at, and about to switch to.
but thanks for the heads up on sli and crossfire.
I also have another question. Concerning Hard drives,Cooling fan for the CPU, Sound Card, anything else i need to build a computer.
First for the hard drive.. does it really matter MUCH if i were to use a old or cheap hard drive that probably has about 100-200gb of space for this recommended build? Does it the hard drive speed affect the speed of the computer overall?
Asus P5Q Pro P45 Motherboard
4850 Video Card
4GB of RAM
PC Power and Cooling 610W PSU.
For the Cooling fan... I see some people getting them, but is it usually advised to get a different one, compared to use the one that comes with the CPU? (Q9450) Or can i just live without it?
I'm don't really have any experience with sound cards and the rest of the computer components that weren't mentioned. So... if anyone can, could they give me some Cheap, but good brands or links of other components i need?
It'll be greatly appreciated. I'm not planning to buy components that makes a desktop the ultimate media or performance desktop, but i'm just looking at a nice smooth running performance laptop( this doesn't include great sound) I just want it to run FAST for a cheap price. When i mean cheap i mean... less than $1000 or.. i'm trying to aim below that, but if it happens to go above. then i don't really mind it.
