Future Rig!

Recommended Posts

Actually, I've come to reconsider 3 things.

 

If possible, Can someone suggest a good case (I want a big huge case! Full ATX)

 

Also, a good CPU cooler. As you said, something maybe a better name brand.

 

3rd, the Monitor. Seems a bit pricey...

The case is really more of a personal preference. But take a look at the Cooler Master Stackers, the GIGABYTE 3D Auroras, I like the Sliverstone cases as well. Depending on your budget you might also want to take a look at some Lian Li cases.

 

As for the cooler I've only used the stock Intel one so I can't really recommend one from experience but a lot of people seem to like the Tuniq tower. If you got some money to burn you can do what I did and get a Coolit Freezone...mine should be here on Tuesday:drool:

 

And take a look at this monitor...I plan on getting a couple of these

These HDs are cheaper and more reliable.. including shipping you save about $70 overall. http://shop2.outpost.com/product/4697788?s...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

 

I'd get DDR1000 too. May come in handy. ;)

 

I also recommend chenming cases over TT.. for the price, they're great. As quiet as the fans you put in them. The only case I've ever owned that does intake fans/HD cooling right.. it doesn't have so much crap on it that prevent intake fan/HD fans from getting air in below 2500 RPM.

@ Raiderfan: I was planning on a 22inch LCD. I could consider the 22inch version of that. And I'll check out some cases from the manufactures you named. Though, my budget for the case is not that high.

 

@ Thasp: DDR1000 Ehh?

I'm not sure if those are using Micron D9 like it's DDR800 Counterpart, but would I really need that extra Mhz? The E4300 runs at lower FSB then the E6*** Models.

 

Also, are those hard drives the 7200.10? I've had problems with Seagate in the past. I wanted something more enterprise class (built for 24/7 Use). Also, I read on

That the RE2's are the best hard drives for "server" class.

 

On top of that, need a new cooler if I want to make that DDR2-1000 scream ^_^

I got the pc2-8000 works great with that combo as I am using that combo.

Get the ultra-120 cooler by thermalright.

Order your DS3 from Clubit like I did it guaranteed me a revision 3.3.

 

Good system!

@ Iamkoza, I don't really care about noise. I have a vantec tornado right now in my Thermaltake Mid-tower =P

 

As for 120mm Heatsinks. I think this will do the job very nicely =)

Thermalright ultra-120. And as for the matching fan:

I just wish someone could get that heatsink in stock!

Wanna hear something crazy!

I had a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro back in Oct. on my e6300 rig.

I bought it from $30 from the egg, now it is $60.

They must use some kind of supply and demand curve pricing system.

 

Anyways I actually only got the ram to about 550mhz.

Could get ddr2-1200 weak I know. But it's monster ram could be my board or maybe the timings I chose. Anyways it's being RMA'd now.

Honestly a forum member is selling team xtreem ram I would look into that.

And do what I said about clubit.

How far did you get your CPU?

 

and Yes, I'll update my first thread with the new Item's I picked out.

I found a place that has the Ultra-120 In-stock, and the place is reliable. I sent you a PM.

I might just end up waiting for the new Ultra-120 EXTREME.

As for fans, not sure what to look for. I think I might just go with something that has high CFM.

 

 

I might have to cut down some stuff, as this is getting a bit expensive now...

I might just take out the raptor.

 

I'll buy the board from ClubIT.
