Couple months ago I posted my dream AM2 gaming rig I had planned to buy but AMD dropped the line of chips I was hoping to buy so I dropped AMD and held on until now for the Intel Core 2 Duo instead. I am so glad I did. :yowch: Parts I have so far... 1. MOTHERBOARD: Asus P5W DH Deluxe Even though all the parts haven't been shipped yet, (impatiently awaiting visits from UPS every day I wake up) yesterday I did receive my Asus mobo. What a sweet board. For those of u in Canada, i got it from PCCana...(u know the rest) and it was shipped with 0701 BIOS so the Conroe chip WILL POST, no flashing required. I'm so happy. 2. PC CASE: NZXT Lexa Classic I also have my uber-sweet pc case which I just can't say enough good things about this good-looking, very quiet pc case. Ordered, but not yet received: 3. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz/1066FSB/4MB cache 4. RAM: 2GB, Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4PRO 5. VIDCARD: Asus PCI-E GF7 EN7900GTX 512M TVO BOX I realize the mobo is setup for ATI Xfire but I opted for a single top-end Nvidia card vs having 2 x NOISY ATI X1900XT buzzing about. 6. PSU: Enermax Liberty 620W modular 7. Optical Drives: DVD+/-RW PLEXTOR PX-755SA/SW 16/6 SATA BOX BK 8. HDD: 500GB WD5000KS/SATA2/16MB Will update this when all the parts are in the pot and cooked to perfection (not literally I hope).
