  1. lol well ive bulit a few computers so it shouldnt be too bad. if i do run into any problems ill just come on here and post em. also i found both the aluminum and copper xp-90 heatsinks at http://www.adpmods.com. the aluminum is $45.94 and the copper is $64.95. The also have those panaflow fans for $11.50. i was thinking of getting a Thermaltake 92mm LED Smart Fan - A2017 instead of the panaflow. is the thermaltake one as good as the panaflow? thx
  2. well I'd rather have the 6600GT since I'll probably end up having 2 of them in SLI. Those XP-90 heatsinks look great but that svc.com site doesnt ship to Canada! Just like newegg. If I'm able to get an XP-90 heatsink should I get the aluminum or copper? Also has there been any problems with the DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR? I got turned away from the ASUS SLI board since people were saying the chipset fan would die. Since no one answered this question from last time, how do I tell which core it is? And yeah I know the premier and value ram isnt as good but the better ram is more money. but i wont be buying this until july or august so maybe things will go down in price by then. also the 6800gt and x800xl are way outta my price range! thanks for all your help!
  3. I'm not sure how to tell which core it has. could someone explain that? also it will be a retail processor from this store called Canada Computers. their website is http://www.canadacomputers.com. i think i'll probably still go with the board that supports sli but i could save $70 if i dont. also does newegg ship to Canada?
  4. I'm thinking of buying an AMD64 setup. I'd like to have the SLI capabilities although I wont be using it right away. Below is the stuff I'm thinking of getting. Nothing too expensive since I'm trying to keep it fairly cheap. Also I live in Canada so it's harder for me to get all the things that you can in the US. Parts to Buy Motherboard: DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Memory: OCZ PC-3200 DDR400 Premier Series 1GB (2x512MB) Dual Channel Kit Video Card: Asus, MSI or XFX 6600GT (Or any other brands you recommend) Powersupply: Enermax EF701AX-VE SFMA 2.0 NoiseTaker P Series 600 Watt DVD Writer: Some brand Dual-Layer DVD Writer Parts I currently have that I will continue to use: Soundcard: Soundblaster Audigy Gamer TV Tuner: ATI TV Wonder Pro + Remote Wonder Hard Drive: 160GB Western Digital ATA and 120GB Maxtor SATA If you got any recomendations or questions go right ahead a tell me. I'm trying to keep it fairly low cost but still be able to upgrade in the future. I wont be doing any serious overclocking since the processor will only have stock cooling.
