Default First build.


First off, I skim through this site every once in a while, and now I decided to post, seeing how this is my first build.

I'm planning on building my first gaming rig...mmm around july 22nd.

Here is what I have planned:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Quad Core
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Quad Core Processor LGA775 Kentsfield 2.40GHZ 1066FSB 8MB Retail Box - DirectCanada

MOBO: EVGA Nforce 680I SLI (..-A1)
EVGA Nforce 680I SLI LGA775 Conroe ATX DDR2 2PCI-E16 2PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GBLAN 1394 Motherboard - DirectCanada

Video Card: EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GTX
EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GTX 575MHZ 768MB 1.8GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out HDCP DIRECTX10 Video Card - DirectCanada

Memory: OCZ Reaper PC2-8500 2GB
OCZ Reaper Hpc Edition PC2-8500 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit - DirectCanada

HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache Ncq Hard Drive - DirectCanada

Optical: Liteon LH-20A1H-186
Liteon DVD+RW 20X8X16 DVD-RW 20X6X16 DL 8X Lightscribe INT IDE Drive Black DVD Writer W/ SW Retail - DirectCanada

CPU: ? not sure yet. I was thinking the corsair 620w one, or the OCZ GameXstream 600.

Before you suggest a different CPU, I will need the multi threading for some rendering, and it also doesn't hurt to plan ahead. Not all of the items will be bought with Direct Canada since I have local retailers with better deals, but the "NO pst" does help a lot.

I plan on OCing to a great deal some time in the future, when i really need it. But for now, I'll run at stock. I also plan on going SLI as well, but that can wait aswell.

So please tell me what you think, and what PSU I should get.

Thanks in advance guys & gals.
