Maybe a Future Build.
 
If I scrounge my pennies I might be able to pull one of these two builds out of my @ss.

EVGA nForce 750i SLI - $157.56
Intel E5200 - $101.78
Corsair TX650W - $112.17
G.Skill F2-8000 4GB - $63.02
EVGA GeForce 9600GT - $120.96
LG 22x DVD-RW - $25.99
Xigmatek RS1283 - $41.04
Xigmatek ACK-I7751 mounting kit - $9.72
Total: $632.24


Keep in mind this build, I do have another 9600GT that I will be running in SLI. This 750i mobo does 8x SLI.
I will be OCing the processor to 3.6GHz


Biostar G31-M7-TE mATX - $57.51
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 - $198.88
LG 22x DVD-RW - $25.99
Xigmatek RS1283 - $41.04
Xigmatek ACK-I7751 mounting kit - $9.72
G.Skill F2-8000 4GB - $63.02
Powercolor Radeon HD 4850 512MB - $214.92
Corsair VX450 - $82.53
$630.59

This build I will not be overclocking.

All prices from Direct Canada.

Which build do you think I would get better performance out of?

The latter has my vote. But since you're not overclocking, just use whatever coolers you got left around? I don't know the members well, but I swear you got extra coolers lying around somewhere....

And since you're not overclocoking, why would you use PC2-8000 RAM? Just run at 1:1?

BALISTX November 21, 2008 08:15 PM

The price was a steal for 4GB. I do have an AC Freezer 7 Pro lying around that I can use a bolt-thru kit on. Lets not talk about bolt-thru kit. Finding them in stock is a hard thing to due.

Yeah...i agree with geokilla. I would take system 2...drop the Xigmatek(since you're not overclocking), and save $50...or add it towards a better mobo or PSU. Then in the future...when you decide you want to release the Wolfdales' potential.. grab a good aftermarket HS/F...and have fun overclocking. :biggrin:

Biostar TP43D2-A7 - $91.26
Intel E7300 - $145.99
G.Skill F2-6400 4GB - 60.78
XIgmatek HDT-RS1283 - $41.04
Xigmatek ACK-I7751 - $9.72
Corsair VX550W - $60.00
LG GH22Ns30 Black - DVD+RW - $25.99
Total: $434.78
I will be using my 9600GT for now and just save up some money to upgrade the card.

Goal is to get the process to 360x10 FSB
If I set the memory up to 1:1 it should run the memory at 720MHz correct.?

geokilla November 22, 2008 02:37 PM

Memory speed will be at 720Mhz.

Assuming what you posted with the E7300 is a new build, why not get a E7200 instead? I was able to get 3.7Ghz on my E7200 ^^

Correct. :thumb:

It's only a $15 difference and I like the 10x multi instead of the 9.5x multi. If I got the E7200 I hate using .5 multi so I would put it to 9 and in order to get 3.6GHz I'd have to put the FSB to 400 where I'd rather play it safe and have the FSB at 300. However if I did get the E7200 and ran it at a 1:1, I would be getting the most out of the memory.

Decisions, Decisions.

I'll have to do some more research to see if that board can hit 400 FSB.

Well, I think most E7XXX CPUs would max out at around the 3.8Ghz mark. Some lucky ones could get to 4Ghz too, and this is done on a E7200. If my E7200 had a VID of 1.15V instead of 1.2V, I think I could push it up to 4Ghz.

And what's so bad bout the .5 multi?

I would be quite surprised if that mobo couldn't run 400FSB, as the vast majority of P45 boards(and a lot of P35) will run 500FSB. I don't think that P43 is that much different, from a performance standpoint.
