Well I'm getting rid of my rig to go down to a newer possibly less powerful machine.
But I was wondering if anyone here had any recommendations, comments, suggestions (always open to that).
I'll be parting out my current rig and selling one of my 8800GTX's to fund this (already sold, don't ask). I'll be ordering from Zipzoomfly, because i've never really had an issue with their service and they always deliver on time in my experiences.
Things i'm pulling from my rig is; one 8800GTX (evga), drives, sound card, dvd burner, and psu. Things i'm buying; mobo, cpu, ram, and case (SFF!!!)
Here's what I picked out so far,
Motherboard - Heard great things about these boards, and they are "semi-decent" overclockers, reliable though. First time i'll be using an Intel chipset though, so this scares me. I am also looking for an SLI board "just in case"
CPU - Q6600, quad core,2.4Ghz, clocks nicely.. Only looking for 2.6 or something outta this chip.
Ram - i'll be ordering this from newegg, and am stuck between which to choose.
i'm trying to find out what chips these use before I purchase them.
Case - This is where i'm not too sure on, i'm too happy with it, but I haven't found a case that supports an ATX psu, and three drives. If you got any suggestions, please post them up!
That's it so far, not going to go with 4GB of ram yet but I just might depending on what I can get for my hardware.
So that leaves my shit for sale.
