Default New build

The List

CPU - I7 920 D0
Motherboard - Asus P6T
Ram - 6Gb 1600mhz G.skill ddr3
Video Card - GTX 275
Sound Card - X-fi extreme music
Power Supply - 750WATT Crosair
Case - Coolmaster HAF 932
Sound - Z5500 Sound System
HDD'S - 2x 640GB + 1x 1TB + 1x 250GB

Keeping the build now.

Running it at 4.0 Ghz right now, and man regardless of what benchmarks tell you i7's smooth game play by a massive amount. Alot less pop in when you change high detail scenes it feels more fluid, not due to fps either.

Before


After


P95 48 Hour Begins..

I'm not a fan of the sound card because of weird incompatibility with the other X-Fi drivers, but nonetheless very good build. You'll be happy with it!

Running the system at 4Ghz right now, think i'll be keeping this setup and make my friend another one ;).

Just a question, 3.75 QPI is it safe to run this for 4.0ghz overclock? Being that intel says 1.35 is max.
