Default New build..My ladies PC

New build...Sorta I will be taking some of my parts and some of the new parts and making 2 separate PC's. One for her homework, her Boinc and games. While My PC will be held over until X58 and i7

What her build will consist of

Q6600 - from mine
2GB Corsair XMS2 PC6400 - from mine
Asus P5Q Pro - New
Seagate 500GB - New
Thermaltake Blu ORb - From mine
Lian Li - V600 - From mine
2900Xt - Spare
Corsair HX620 - Spare
Vista Home Premium 64Bit
Samsung 2253BW 22" - New

What My build will be left looking like

E8400 - New
4GB Corsair XMS2 PC 6400 - from original build
Asus Maximus Formula
Seagate 1TB and WD200 - From original build
Thermalright Ultra 120 Black W/Silverstone FM122-B and Bolt through kit. - NEW
4870X2 - Current build
Corsair HX1000 - Current build
Vista Ultimate 64Bit
Samsung 245T - Current build
Lian Li V2010-B - New W/ 3bay HDD Fan add on and 120mm front fan add on.

I figure I can OC that E8400 to 4.0 pretty easy and benefit from the extra oomph in games and 3Dmark. Also on order are a collection of mod gear to hack up this case and turn it into a WC powerhouse but that wont likely happen until the i7 swap so this Thermalright will tide me over til that.

My System Specs

Default

Most folks would be happy to have the "secondary" computer to use as their main rig, let alone as the "hand-me-downs" rig. :)

What vid card do you have for your main rig?

4870X2 forgot to put that in there. That swhy I want a CPU at 4.0 to handle the bad bottleneck I am having now due to heat limitations and well you can only push the Q6600 so hard. I am exited to get rid of my really really small V600 its been a great case but once I got the HX1000 it covered up most of my Airflow to my CPU due to the weird layout of the PSU over the CPU that's the same reason I went with the Blu Orb it was the only cooler that would fit into the case under the PSU.

Update on Parts Order went through tonight I went with the E8600 over the E8400 I couldn't resist the 10X multiplier. This way I can hit 4.0ghz and still keep my PC6400 Ram while keeping the Ratio matched up. and thanks to the awesome NCIX sale went with a 640GB over a 500GB for less. Now the waiting came.....I am also waiting on my mod parts from Frozen CPU from last week.....yarr
