  1. Your choices are pretty good.

    I don't know if I'd get a nforce 780i, I'd buy a P45 or X38 instead (unless you plan on SLI'ing the 9800 GX2 in the future).

    CPU Cooler, I'd go with a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233003 instead.

    PSU, I've never read anything about BFG PSU's. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006&Tpk=corsair%20750tx is what I would get.

    HDD wise, I'd pitch in an extra 10 dollars for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136218 which has been known to have the best performance in this range.
  2. I do plan on SLI'ing soon is why i choose the 780i yes.

    as for the CPU cooler never seen that one before will have to look into it more.

    and the PSU i like BFG cause they have a lifetime warranty even if i overclock.

    i think i will get that HDD for 10 more $ xtra 140G for 10$ is REALLY nice.
  3. The Corsair PSU comes with a 5 year warranty. That should be more than enough time in case anything goes wrong.

    A side note, good PSU's are more than able to handle the load when you overclock and should not pose any big issues.
  4. so over all this meshes well together then?
  5. Before you make the decision on the PSU, do a bit more research.
    Unreliable PSU's opens the gate to an endless nightmare of troubleshooting problems.

    Other than that, everything is solid and good to go.
  6. Thanks again but from the stuff i've read on the BFG one the older model is what people were having problems with and this one seems to be of a better design.
  7. Super OverKill on the RAM.
    Just get normal DDR2-800 which will let you OC the Q6600 to 3.6Ghz.
    Spend the cash on a better CPU Cooler.
  8. The mobo i'm getting though says 1066Mhz standard so thought i would stay with the faster memory. especially since this is going to be for next gen gaming like Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, and Crysis. This is my first build so trying to maximize it as much as possible.
  9. whats a better CPU cooler that i could get the Xigmatek will hit the side of my case i have read so don't want to get that one
  10. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835207004

    would be another solid choice.

    The 1066mhz standard on the motherboard doesn't mean anything to be honest (just means that it supports it). If you really want it to be for next generation gaming, wait a month. Core i7 is coming out.
  11. that is a nice CPU but i don't want to have to redo my whole setup =/
