i dont know what i should get for phenom II just yet. but my plans are to build the best pc possible. i am not on a budget either so i can afford just about any system atm. Any help is appriciated. Thanks
The only thing wrong with the i7 965 extreme is its outrageous price. You can easily match or exceed the performance of the 965 with the 920 by overclocking, so unless you are swimming in cash and want to get a super overclock there is no reason to spend extra $700 for it. You would need a good watercooling system in order to make that a worthwhile investment.
But honestly I think that is a huge waste of money unless you want to play on 30" monitors...2 gtx 285's should be enough for any single monitor out there for a while, and when they aren't it would be better to just buy the next best card out there than trying to build a system now than can support 3way SLI and a 1200w PSU...
Yes that looks lke an awesome system to build. i will be on it asap. Thanks for the info
i've heard alot of bad things about ssd hard drives. so i am a bit shy about going that route. yet
I didn't use SSD's in my build, Velociraptors are 10000rpm HDD's that have been out for a while and are reliable. But they just cost a lot right now so you could leave them out if you didn't want them.
