What's the use of the pc? If the cpu will be overclocked, how much?
September 29, 2008 6:47:41 PM

PC will be for gaming primarily and some buisness stuff surfing some also. As for overclocking I am new to building a computer and know nothing about overclocking, I will research it and crank it up some but not sure how much. What would you recommend? The motherboard I figured get the latest mojo and it will be the most upgradable years down the road. I am all for saving money where possible as long a it will work for the long haul. I plan on pgrading this thing as games get beyond its current limits.

Motherboards are only manufacturered for a short time. If you plan on keeping your system running for several years, get a spare motherboard. You can get one brand new one and often find a spare in newegg's open box section. Or just get 2 new cheaper boards. All my boards are $100 or less; one was only $19.95 new closeout at Fry's. With a spare board, you'll have maybe 30 minutes downtime to change it out versus 3 weeks or more for an rma. Ebay will cost you as much or more than brand new once a board becomes scarce.

The ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA will do some serious damage in overclocking. I'd get X38/X48 as well if I plan to keep the board for years. The possible bottleneck for overclocking would be the ram. Look into Mushkin Redline or Accent.

If price is right, get 8 gigs for 64bit Vista.

Swap the TIM out for this:

WOW I need to read the post before I submit it. IDIOT Quad 4870X2? Why would I possibly need that, one is plenty, also one screen is fine for now. I don't even want to know what that rig would cost. I am going to order this stuff minus the extra stuff. What do you think this machine will do with Crysis?

You can max it out on the 24".
