Im building a PC for gaming/audio recording.

I already have a 500gb 7200rpm HDD I'm going to use, so I dont need to buy that.

Here are the specs

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor Model BX80562Q6600

Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler

MSI NX8800GT 512M OC GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

ASUS P5K WS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model KVR667D2N5/2G (x2)

HIPER HPU-4M880 880W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

M-AUDIO Delta 44 Professional PCI Interface 4-In/4-Out Audio Card

COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


The total from Newegg.com is $1,043.91

What do you think?

you pc doesn't requrie a 880 watt psu. more power to you if you get it just for kicks. but a 600watt should be more then enough.

DDR2800 will give room to overclock the cpu. it's a shame not to overclock a q6600 to at least 3.0Ghz as it takes it so easily.

Unless you really plan to do sli get a intel board with a p35 or p45 chipset. Nvidia chipsets have been sucking lately. Also the radeon 4850 is a better video card. the intel board will let you do those in a dual card senario.

What do you have that needs the PCI-X slot of the P5K WS motherboard? Or why did you did choose that motherboard?
