    Intel Pentium 4... for now
  1. I've finally decided to get all the stuff to build my PC today. I was set on getting the 2500k with a p67 motherboard. My first problem was finding either the 2500k or 2600k on newegg. I thought ok whatever, I'll just get it off amazon. Then I try looking for a motherboard (a p8p67 deluxe) to go with it and realize that newegg isn't carrying any of those either. I tried looking for some on amazon and I couldn't find any there either. There were some H67's but as I understand it, if I want to overclock I should get the P67. I feel like I'm missing something. I think I read on another thread that there isn't going to be any kind of p67 motherboard for a while... possibly because there's something wrong with either the cpu or mobo? If anyone can let me know what is going on. Do I just have bad luck?
  2. 3. Found this one, only about $20 more plus a longer warranty. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-127-510&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=10&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo
  3. My girlfriend wanted me to help her build a new pc so I started looking through newegg to see what I could find and came across this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.480126 Cooler Master RC-932-KKN1-GP :$129.98 GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R :$199.99 Cooler Master RS850-AMBAJ3-US :$139.99 Intel BX80601930 :$284.99 OCZ Technology OCZ3G1600LV6GK :$155.99 Western Digital WD1002FAEX :$89.99 Cooler Master RR-UV8-XBU1-GP :$59.99 Combined Total:$1,060.92 Combo Discounts:-$119.93 Combo Price:$940.99 Price After Rebate:$900.99 She would be using the pc for photoshop, vlc to play movies onto my tv, programming software, and some light gaming. This setup seems perfect for it. I have a couple of questions before we decide to buy. 1. Should I and would I be able to overclock the cpu if I choose to? 2. Am I overlooking any items that I need to build a PC? 3. Would this be a good GPU to go with everything? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130563 EVGA 768-P3-1362-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  4. My very first name when picking out a screen name was goliath82887. Goliath came from starcraft and it just sounded like such a cool name. The SN was taken so I added my birthday to the end of it. I went to a theme park one day with a bunch of people in the DDR group. While we were hanging out I decided to take up a whole bench to prevent a friend from sitting down. Didn't really stop him. He sat down at me and made me laugh and told me that the massive amount of his weight would crush my small body. He'd crush my insides so much that I would then have to pee in a colostomy bag. And everywhere I went I would have to carry around the bag, and that whenever I played DDR my bag would just be flying around and people would start calling me DJ Bag. (The DJ part comes from everyone in the community claiming they were a DJ even though they weren't). I actually liked the name DJ Bag so I went with that for a new screen name. It's actually DJBagownsyou. I've had it forever now. The name Hush comes from another friend of mine who decided I needed a name to be called that wasn't my real name (which was really hard to pronounce). Everyone else in the DDR community had a nickname they went by usually for putting scores on the machine. Some of them include Squirrel Wrangler, Fatguy, Enigma, DJ Rage, Idykydy, Sheenaza, Abducted Vision, Kunai, Dukamok. It was decided that my name would be Hush... because I was a real quiet one. I barely spoke to anyone back then. I've gotten so used to it that people call me Hush even outside the community. The DJ part comes from the same joke as before and was necessary sometimes cause 4 letter names was always under the limit. If DJ Hush is taken, I usually go by El Hushorz. And that is the history of my name.
  5. I've heard this said many times before and is the reason why I picked out the PSU that I did. I thought I would give it a try and maybe post my results in this thread about how well it went.
  6. Thanks for all the recommendations, I'll look into them. What are peoples thoughts on getting a AeroCool Touch 2000 Controller Panel? Is it something that I would need or is it just eye candy? And can anyone suggest a good high end air cooler?
  7. Was planning on getting most of these items from newegg and amazon. I wasn't sure whether or not to go for the cheaper ram because I was worried that would slow down my system. It was more of a "when in doubt, go big" kinda thing. Still haven't decided what kind of monitor I want but I know that eventually I would want to set up eyefinity. I read on another forum (dont remember which) that it would be best to get 3 1920X1200 monitors so I've been looking at those. As for the PSU, there seems to be so many different PSU's out there that it's hard to find the one I really need... especially when I'm not quite sure how many Watts I need in the first place.
  8. Hello everyone, I've been stalking these forums for a little while and thought it was about time I actually posted something. I've always known about overclocking but never took a real interest until lately. Anyway, I think my first post should be about my first build. I've still new to all of this so I would appreciate all feedback and criticism on anything. Intel Core i7 920 ASUS P6X58D Premium Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB 3 x 2 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz POWERCOLOR AX5970 COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Western Digital RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Corsair P128 (CMFSSD-128GBG2​​​D) 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC SSD OCZ OCZACSSDBRKT2 Solid State Drive 3.5" Adaptor Bracket AeroCool Touch 2000 Controller, Panel Enermax Ps Epr625Awt Pro82+ 625W 17Db Atx12V V2.3 Blu-Ray Burner Internal Card Reader Internal Floppy Drive (nostalgia) So anyways, this is currently floating around in my wishlist. I have a feeling that I might have messed up somewhere. I know I left out a cooling option but that is because I still haven't decided whether I want to use air cooling or water cooling. And I know this might sound crazy, but I've never actually BUILT a PC before... although I've taken apart my current pc and put it back together a few times. Alright, let me have it
