Thinking of this for my system:

eVGA nVidia 780i motherboard
Intel Q6600(Quad Core) CPU
2GB(2x1GB) DDR2-1066 OCZ Platinum Memory
eVGA 8800GTS(G92) 512MB video card

This will be an update to my current system, so I will be using the same case, hard drives, optical drives and power supply.

Let me know what you think!

mm... maybe u should wait some days to see if the new yorkfield cores come out (actually, they're just two wolfdales glued together :p)

they're 45nm and feature 12mb cache memory
and these new cpu's transistors are hafnium based, so it's supposed to perform better and be more power efficient


the rest seems good, but why are u changing ur 3d board?

I chose the Q6600 for the price. How before the Yorkfields are released?

I am actually keeping my GTX, the GTS is going with the old system.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
