Hey guys wanted to post my build again very shortly ill finally be purchasing my build so excited and wanted to see if you guys can help me make those last few changes to improve this build however possible
For now going to put towards gaming also want to use this for college, when I head into the gaming business. I love using Photoshop for drawing. if anyone has any other nice programs please let me know.
I do plan to overclock
Can Spend up to 2500.00.. though I don't really want to..
First off, I just want to say that the 1200 is HUGE! Just letting you know. Do you really need 10 hard drive expansion slots? lol
Anyways, everything looks good. Nice build.
One suggestion though; If you're doing photoshop/game development software kind of stuff, I would recommend the Q9450(or Q9550 if you feel like spending $200 more). It will help you with those multithreaded apps and cut down on rendering time, etc.
Also, I can speak from experience that the HDT 1283 is a great cooler. It keeps my (currently stock) Q9450 at a cool 30 degrees. Have yet to really test it to the max since I just built my computer last week.
thanks guys for looking my build over and advice I have noticed that the antec twelve hundred is huge but I like its slick design and cooling though I have thought about picking another case Quad Cores seem nice just to expensive for thoses two extra cores.. but I do want to get the Q9450 with that cooler how high can I overclock it?
