First attempt at building a computer!
Sup guys. I found this site while going around for information on Direct Canada, and you folks look like a nice gang so I'll stick around.
And here is my first gaming build!
Case : Antec 900
Mobo : Asus P5E x38
CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
PSU : PCP&C Silencer 750W Quad (red ftw!)
RAM : Corsair XMS2 TWIN2x4096-6400C5
Cards : 2xHIS Radeon HD 4850
HDD : Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB OEM
CPU Fan : Zalman CNPS9500
I've got all the stuff already (save my mobo and fan...the wait is so cruel :sad:), but anything you think I should have done differently?
I also don't like the red pc p&p cause you generally pay more for it being red.
The 900 is actually a rather nice case with good air movement, as fpr the psu, the power n cooling guys make the finest psu's out there imo.
But grats and welcome to the community.
The only question I'd have is how much you intend to OC your rig?
For anybody OC'ing, I recommend at least DDR2 1000 as DDR2 800 can limit your FSB on an intel chipset board (can't run memory lower than 1:1 with FSB).
You really only need ddr2-1000 if you push 500mhz fsbs.
Depends on the DDR2 800. I've seen many "decent" sets which won't break 900.
IMO, I can see sticking with DDR2 800 if it's going to make a big difference in price, but if it's under $10/gig it's worth paying the bucks for a set that's guaranteed (assuming it's not U/S) to do 1000+.
