  • Final System Specs!

    Finally! I have all of my componens selected, and found a great vendor.

    I did my research, and I believe this is best for me, factoring in what this particular vendor had in stock as well.

    Case:
    Coolermaster CAC-T05 Centurion 5 Aluminum

    *I was going to get the Aerocool Aeroengine Case (just because Im a pilot, but it was hard to find, expensive and didn't seem to be too practical.

    CPU:
    Intel Core 2 Duo e6600 Conroe

    CPU Cooler:
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro LGA775 2500RPM 45CFM


    Motherboard:
    EVGA 680i SLI


    RAM:
    Corsair XMS2 2GB PC6400 4-4-4-12


    HDD:
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB


    PSU:
    Seasonic S12-600HT 600W


    Soundcard:
    Will be buying the Soundblaster X-Fi Fatal1ty at a later date...

    Video Card:
    BFG GeForce 7900 GS OC

    OS:
    Win XP Home, possibly MCE if I can find out that the Vista upgrade is indeed valid for this build... (see my other thread in this board).


    That has it.
    Total Price = $1 563.00 Canadian (roughly $1 330 USD) including taxes, shipping and insurance.

    Let me know what you think. Finally, after hours of research and staring at this computer screen - I have a build! Now I just need to order and actually build it.

      BAH! I knew I was forgetting something...

      BFG GeForce 7900GS (got a good deal on it for Boxing Day, so as long as it gets me through until DX10 cards become common among the market)

            Yep, only one vid card for now. Waiting on DX10 basically.

            Monitors, not sure yet. Right now I will be using my 17" CRT!!!
            Probably getting a 19" LCD 700:1 with less than 5ms response. Ill have to keep my eyes open (pun not intended).

              I suggest samsung monitors....i have two 19" samsungs (930b and 931b)
              Both were decently priced and have been reliable for more than a year.

              I think the response times are 3ms, but id have to look again.

                    Thanks Claw.

                    I actually ended up buying an Acer AL2216WBD 22" Widescreen


                    Way more money than what I planned on, but what's a guy to do?! :D
                    Thankfully, I'm not married!!
