  1. No offense but this gets ask almost daily. The answer is mainly the same one each time...majority chose the 165. I agree a 100% as you can tell by my sig.

    Great mobo choice and while I love OCZ Ram ive hear good think about gskill too.


    Im sorry for the question! just want to be sure about spending money on the good stuff asking to the expert people


    Thanks a lot guys

  2. Whats your budget? Thats one hell of a case modding project your taking on. Im all for it, but if this is your first you might be bitting off a little more than you can chew. If your not dead set on a full acrylic, check out mnpctech.com. They've got lots of helpful tutorials for the first time modder and lots of very nice custom parts. Im currently using some of his designs on an Ultra midtower for a friend of mine and I might use some of his design elements for a little case mini atx case I found in a friends garage. Also from what Ive heard, Windows has problems recognizing 4Gb of ram, you should stick to 2Gb in two sticks.


    I have already the vc card (x1900 xtx sapphire) and have 2k dollars for the rest.

    Ok so 2gb in 2 sticks, OCZ ? DDR500?

    Ok if u can help me i will be thankful.

    im checking the url u gave me. those projects are awesome. I wish i can make one like that lol

    Ok after made a large research, this is what i want, like the pictures but in blue.


    Im going for a DFI expert, prob a AMD 3800x2, 2gb of ram (recommend the best please), ATI X1900 XTX 512 mb, 2 HD at 10k rpm, DVDRW, the new Audigy sound card, i need a new psu (i want a modular one, i checked this forum very deep and find that the best modular psu are the OCZ and the hyper modular 580W the hyper modular looks better for what i want, im looking for great performance, thats why im spending lot of money in this project, and of course i want this machine Quiet! 0 noise, looking for a Watercooling (im not expert on that) so i was looking for a Zalman reserator plus 1 just for keep the cpu and gpu cold without noise and the tubes looks nice.

    so my questions are a few ones:


    1. Wich Case can be the best for this project? ATX full case, Cube Case (both in clear version) or go with another case.

    2. Wich PSU will be the best for looking and performance (looking for the UV reactive ones or something cool looking like that)

    3. Im thinking in Mushkin or OCZ DDR500+ ram, 2gb or 4gb wich model i should get?

    4. Water cooling (im a newb on that) should i get Zalman? i read is very easy to install.

    5. DFI expert will be my best option?

    6. 10k rpm HD wich ones are the best?

    7. any other recomendation?


    Thanks a Lot for the help

  4. homebrew my man homebrew done right heaps cheaper(in the long run) much better results and more flexable go with the 1/2" or 3/8". d.d., swiftech, silverprop just to name a few go with a known trusted brand and it will last you ages and get the best results


    So the zalman is not good ?

  5. If I were you a nice Danger Den watercooling setup would set you back maybe $350, but you're getting the best stuff out there. What case are you using? That depends a lot on the amount of radiators and fans needed.


    I was looking for a acrylic case for make some mods.

  6. ok after a few research my options are

    DFI expert

    AMD X2 3800

    ATI X1900 XTX

    memory ram (still looking for the best one)


    anyone have experience with this water cooling kit?

    i hear many good things

    should i buy it? is 250 dollars

  7. the ultra-d will be fine for your x1900,, see my sig :)


    the Enermax whisper i believe might be a good choice for PSU but others may correct me


    Thanks now i now my vc is good. not i need to worry about the ram


    Mushkin eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 500 (PC 4000)

    is one of the best options?

  8. first, no dont get an ultra PSU - they are not strong enough for DFI and overclocking. try Enermax or OCZ for PSU's.

    second, the Ultra-D would be the safest bet for your rig but the new cf3200- dr would be the most fun and offers the best future proofing.

    third - welcome to DFI street.


    my ATI x1900 xtx will run fine with this mobo?

    any other brand with wire cable control like the ultra psu ?

    i need 550W ? or higher?



  9. Thanks for look at this post

    I have a AMD X2 3800

    Mushkin eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 500 (PC 4000)

    Sapphire ATI X1900 XTX 512 MB

    Western 120 GB HD

    SONY 16x Dual layer DVDRW

    i have a 520W PSU not the best brand, prob will get a ULTRA X2 X-CONNECT 550W MODULAR PSU


    Well my question is easy, i want the best mobo for this hardware, looking for small overcloking, just to put my cpu, my ram, and my vc, to overkill my games (oblivion, bf2, fear)


    thanks for the help, maybe a noob question, but im trying to learn.
