That's What i have right now for my system and i need your guys help for the rest.
I might only have $400 left for everything else or $380 maybe more. ll need more i know i will. Ill find out aftermy laptop ends on ebay.
Im really turned on getting a quad core because so my system will be good for a little while.
I think a quad core is really worth it but i want your guys opinion on that also.
As for memory ill probably get 2gigs hopefully 6400 ones
For a harddrive ive done well with hatachi but i hear well about wd ones what do you thinks best? what size?
I thought of getting either a antec 300 or a COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW
I do like the clear side on the other one because i bought a 120mm blue led fan but i heard the 300 is really good on fan cooling.
What case do you guys think i should get it dosent have to be between thoughs two.
As for a operating system i wanted to know if i could use a dell reinstallation cd windows 32bit on it with a code.
Or use my hp recovery disc that has windows 32 bit on it. Also but i heard there attached to there mobo they originated with so ya i didnt know so im asking you guys. i would like 64bit Vista Home Premium for the more ram it can detect.
That will cost more though.
Im wanting to know what to get on that also to?
I know ill probably have to get more money for the rest of them but i just want your guys opinion on it.
What category would this system be under low or mid or high end for as a gaming system goes?
Im die'in to put this thing togeather when i get everything to play Call Of Duty 4, Crysis, World Of Warcraft, Battle field 2142 Etc. on my Hp 22" HDMI Full 1080p HD 1680 x 1050 screen resolution and Logitech G15 Keyboard on gaming mouse. (ill have to get a hdmi adapter though or just use vga)
Exactly as I suspected. 680i can't do Yorkfields. Your only option for quads is Q6600. That chip will set you back $200. You got about $200 left for the rest. I don't think you have many options. Go with the most affordable parts.
