    Vista ultimate worth it? I heard it was the only one worth buying.

    GFX card:
    Pre-bought 8800 GT Pci-E

    927.93$ (-Shipping)

    Budget is 1000$ if you would like to give me a better option for somthing.
    Thanks!

    P.S. I have a pretty good idea of what im doing - Im using the nordic hardware PC building guide.

    What on earth is going on man? We spent a ton of time helping you buy ram for your old rig, and now you say you ended up not getting it. And I'm not sure it would be a good idea for you to build your own computer. Maybe buy the parts and then go to a local computer store and have them build it for about $50. Or maybe get your dad to help.

    And where is this money coming from? A couple months ago you couldn't spend $200 to upgrade, and now you have $1000? I don't mind helping, as do the other guys here, but I just don't want to spend the time again if this is just a wish list for you and it isn't going to happen. I remember how much you had to work to talk your parents into getting you the GFX card.

        Thats the guide i used skud - And I'm using that same graphics card bamboo - I just didn't buy the memory. And the computer i have has horrible ram, the warranty expired, the CD-Rom drive was dead, the DVD-rom was on its last legs, the power supply was being fried, the processor was 4 years old and had tons of strain of the years, plus, it was a dell. And i have a job now that i make money from, me and my parents are going half and half. I have an idea of what im doing - its just there may be some things i missed.
        Bamboo - I got more RAM from a freind who gave me some of his extra.
        Plus, that computer's system file was corrupt, it wouldnt turn on, and when i went to use recovery console, it'd freeze up, after hours on end with support from microsoft, i gave up. I tried to reformat, but it froze before i was able to try to reformat, and it has been ever since.
        I think it's time for a new computer - all i have is this little laptop. ( which isn't even mine)

          The motherboard is overpriced and uses the outdated 975 chipset.

          I like onboard sound just fine. It should be relatively easy to add a sound card in the future if you find the onboard lacking.

          I have never heard of a DVD drive that didn't read CDs

          That CPU is good

            Hmm namebot - Its really the motherboard that supports all the things i want - Is there another motherboard that would be compatatible?

              Hard to say unless you specify what things you need supported.

              Have you looked at the P45 chipset? It should support pretty much the same stuff and more.

                  Right now that other thread I posted is about the best deal I have seen with the CPU you want and a really good motherboard that should have everything you want.

                  And are you really sure you need a 1TB harddrive. That is really overkill. It would make more since just to get like a 500 gig. I have a 320 for all my extra stuff, and only came close to filling it once when I recorded a TON of FRAPS raw files. I mean tons of recordings.

                    Sure why not? I suppose you could go for P43 if you want to save a couple more $ or even something from the P35 family if you don't count on PCIE v2 being neccessary.

                    There are always SiS and VIA if you are feeling adventurous.

                      Heh, i know bamboo. It's a huge amount of space for the price though - is there another one thats a faster RPM thats cheaper? I love to save every peice of useful software i collect- i had over 200 gigs of software on my old PC.

                        I wouldn't put too much trust in the PSU that comes with that Raidmax case.

                        I would invest in a more reliable PSU that meets your needs.

                            If you're going with the e8400 you should go with faster ram. That processor is all about the overclocking. I would find an OEM version though and get a good cooler. Also if you're going vista and have no idea really what to choose look at this and decide are you really going to use those features and are they worth the price? http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...s/default.aspx

                            Also, before thinking of getting something look at a handful of reviews which aren't badly outdated.

                              I have the same RAM and Processor. Vista's rating puts my RAM at 5.9 but rates my CPU as 5.7. I have my CPU at stock settings. Going off of that, I could OC my CPU a bit so it scores a 5.9 as well.

                              If you don't plan on OCing (or only a little), those pair of parts are fine. Just make sure the motherboard you choose takes the RAM without complaints.
