Hello everyone, I'm planning on building a new system and wanted some opinions and suggestions from more experienced techs.
This will be my 2nd home-built system so please feel free to correct any problems or retarded mistakes I've added to this rig. My budget is about $1400, it is going to be a gaming rig.
As the days go by I will be adding alot more goodies to this system, as far as the other accessories, hard drive, cd-rom, sound card, they are all already with me so I didn't bother mentioning them. I do have the amazerful Logitech Z-5500 making my neighbors crazy also.
So tell me what you guys think, I am human and I do make mistakes, it's only gonna be my 2nd time building a new system so cut me some slack. Have at it fellas.
Uh, your board can't do tripple SLI, it's only got two PCI-E slots. I wonder if it's possible to SLi the 9800GTX with the 9800GX2, I guess I'll google it latter. I'm pretty sure you need a 780i based board for tipple SLi. Personally I'd go with an MSI or ASUS 750i board over that EVGA. Then again I also think you're better off going with a P45 based board and a Radeon 4850 instead.
Well I think that as one of the above posters said, if you dont get a water cooler but get a nice case and good air cooling system you can save lots of money. Also since you have some money on your hands I would get a motherboard with an FSB of 1600mhz and to add on to I would get a processor that supports that FSB and R.A.M that is about 1333mhz or more. I am not sure, but is your processor 64-bit, becuase I would get a 64-bit becuase they definatly work much faster then 32-bit ones especially on harsh programs.
