I'm planning to configure a new system, but I'm not quite sure of what to do.
I'm not planning on overclocking it, I just want to play my games at high quality and high FPS and do my photoshopping/fruitylooping without my computer getting slow.
I've configured 2 systems at this point.
One is a bit cheaper then the other, but might be good enough for me.
So I'd like your opinions about these systems and which one is better for my need.
Is it better to spend the extra €70 for the p45 mobo/ddr2-1066 config?
And waht I would also like to know is what PSU is enough for a Q6600 and 9800GTX+.
Is the 620Watt enough or do I need to go for a more powerfull one?
Anyway, these are the systems I'm choosing from and some parts are missing because I already have it (like a case for example).
Mobo: Asus P5Q
Graphics: (edit)Asus EN9800GTX+/HTDP
Memory: OCZ Nvidia XTC 2K 2x2048 PC8500 (4GB) DDR2-1066 or some other brand, has to be 4GB
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, boxed
CPU Koeler: Arctic Freezer 7 Pro
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1, 750GB
PSU: OCZ GameXStream ,700Watt, Retail
For a 9800GTX+ PC. Actual will be less. CoolerMaster isn't very good. Go with OCZ, CORSAIR, ANTEC.
Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 24 Amp Amps.)
Minimum 550 Watt for SLI mode system.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amp Amps.)
If you don't overclock, any ram will run at half the FSB of the cpu. Q6600 is 1066mhz FSB / 2 = 533mhz. Get the 800mhz kit if you plan to upgrade the cpu in the future.
