It looks like prices are coming in around where I would like them lately. So I’d like your guy’s opinion on these parts and the best place to purchase, etc. I’ve never used ncix price match so any ideas or strategies on doing this successfully would help.
I already have a number of other items; 2x DVD burners, 2x 750GB HDD, 6600GT 2nd monitor, Case, 850W PSU, Fans, CPU cooler, Razer Sound, 24” monitor, KB/Mouse, etc… I’m only planning a modest OC, 3.4 or 3.6 GHz, if I could get to 3.8 stable, I’d drop it to 3.6 and be happy. (just to be safe) The computer will be used for gaming, software development, movies, photo, and office. Just about everything.
Ya, you got me to re-read Sky’s reviews again, that’s always fun! Even though it is a good trade off, I want to do some CUDA programming, and besides both home and work are all Nvidia and having different ones to deal with is a pain.
The two Velociraptors for RAID0? Here’s a little how to; First stop at the beer store and pickup a six-pack, chug one, have a smoke, grab another beer, go online, and order everything!
Anyways, Done Deal…. I went with the OCZ Platinum’s. I hope tddirect doesn’t give me any problems…. *crosses fingers* They did call me on the phone (20min after I submitted) thou, to confirm, hope that's a good sign.
