PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel I-7 chip Windows 7 Pro 64
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI yes in future
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This case holds my old P-4 3.0 machine that I'm looking to upgrade and would really like to reuse my case as it fits in my desk and was a pretty good case in the day. I'm thinking the PS will have to be updated. Plan on RAID 0 Thank you in advance
More aboutadvice 1200 distrib comp gaming build
for a gpu go fr a single 5770 since ur gonna play games less nd then assuming that u get too much u can crossfire it a year or two.....
nd fr the cpu u might want to go for a i7-860 or a 920... oops didnt see the sli part.....sorry forget the 5770 and go fr a 9800 or a gtx 260
The reason I'm going SLI is that SLI has a larger selection of Distributed Computing Projects available to crunch. My main concern is the reuse of the case and whether the PS can handle newer components.
I don't know much about the case, but depending on which cards you want to SLI, I think I would want to have a beefier PSU. My preference would be a Corsair 750TX, but you could probably get away with a 650W as well.
Checl out some of these....%1200 is a very popular price point
