My System Specs

Default New Configuration

Hey guys, thanks a lot for all the input. After not building anything for a few years, its like coming out of a cave to try to catch up to tech levels. After giving everything that you have all said consideration, I went and priced out the following at DC. I've never tried OCing before, but I think I've got the right group of OC fanatics to help me on my way. Here's what I'm looking at now.

Antec P182 Atx Black Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 6X3.5INT No Ps Front Usb Audio Firewire

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L ATX LGA775 P35 1333FSB 1PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 Sound GBLAN Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Dual Core Processor LGA775 Conroe 2.40GHZ 1066FSB 4MB

Gigabyte GeForce 8800GTS 650MHZ 512MB 1.94GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out

Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2 PC2-8500 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 Dual Channel Memory Kit W/ LED

Thermalright ULTRA-120 Extreme 6 Heatpipe Cooler LGA775 Heatsink *Fan Not Included*

NMB-MAT (Panaflo) 120 mm Ball Bearing Fan 2500RPM 104CFM 41.5DBA, RPM Sensor

Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan

Pioneer DVR-212D Black DVD-RW 18X6X18 DVD+RW 18X8X18 Dl 10X Sata 2MB Oem Dvd Burner

All of this for $1275 including GST and shipping. Once again, I really appreciate everyone's input, and I would really like to hear what everyone thinks of this config.

Even better, it turns out to be $1228 because DC waived shipping charges.

Default switch the cpu

dont buy the E6600? did you mean Q6600 If your going dualcore get the E6750 from NCIX or DC..you can normally pick one up for under $190. The recent chips are great overclockers and you should be able to hit 3.6 fairly comfortably.

I second donimo here. Change that fan, it's just too loud. But otherwise, it is now a great build.

Would any or all of these supply the required air flow for the cpu cooler? They are substantially more quiet.

Noctua NF-S12-800 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 800RPM 59M3/H 8DBA Molex

Noctua NF-S12-1200 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 1200RPM 81M3/H 17DBA Molex

Noctua NF-P12-1300 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 1100-1300RPM 63-92M3/H 12.6-19.8DBA Molex

Third model will do just fine. I'm no expert, but a push-pull config with 2 fans may even be better.
