okay so i have a budget of around $1100 and i will be using this for gaming and a little bit of overclocking but not anything excessive. i am planning to buy this within in the next month. So if you can make any suggestions that could improve this please say so and also i would like to get some more fans for air cooling so could you guys suggest some?
Decent start. Here's my 2 cents. Why a Netgear Wireless NIC? The price isn't great, there's a cheaper Linksys Cisco WMP54G Wireless PCI Adapter 54MBPS 802.11G - DirectCanada you can get a 320-500 for the same price if you look carefully on the DC page.
Do you really plan on doing SLI? I'd personally go with a p45 setup unless that's something you REALLY want in your future.
Get an aftermarket heatsink if you're going to consider overclocking. Vendetta 2 with a boltthru kit. Pushpins suck.
I agree with the other comments:
Get the WD 640GB
Loose the 780i motherboard and get a P45 one
Get 4GB of RAM (Probably Mushkin Redlines)
Drop down to a 650W or 550W PSU (From Corsair still)
Bump up the video card to the 9800GTX+ or HD4850
And I'd scrap wireless all together and just get a nice long ethernet cable. That way you have a consistently fast connection. I'd say wired is much better for online gaming too.
For the heatsink, might want to checkout the Xigmatek ones too. They sell their own bolt-thru kit so that makes things easier without you having to do any modding. Though the same Xigmatek bolt-thru kit probably works on the Vendetta as well but I'm not sure.
I agree with the others as well. However, the if you don't need, don't get the wireless card. But it's up to you.
For the motherboard, get the ASUS P5Q Pro or Gigabyte EP45 series
Any decent 4GB RAM kit, that operates at DDR800 with CL4 timings. No need for DDR1000+ memory
OCZ Vendetta 2
Corsair HX620 or HX520
NVIDIA 9800GTX+ or ATI 4850
WD 640GB, preferably Black Series or Seagate 640GB
Intel E7200. Will easily make it to 3.6Ghz. E8400 can make it to 4+Ghz.
Don't forget to check out the upcoming NCIX special, and price match others to get the best prices.
I have to disagree I would get DDR-1000 memory gives more headroom for overclocking without have to OC the ram.
For an example. He could run the board at 500 FSB x 8 multi and get the E8400 to 4.0GHz and run a 1:1 ratio and have the memory running at 1000MHz or he could even run at 450 FSB x 9 multi to get to 4.0GHz and run a 1:1 ratio and have the memory running at 900MHz and then he might be able to tighten the timings without stressing the memory.
