Skt 939 AMD 64 3000+ Venice

 

1 GB OCZ Gold Series

 

DFI Infinity Ultra

 

XFX 6600 GT

 

Zalman 7700 CU

 

NEC DVD Burner

 

Antec Neopower 480W

 

Cooler Master Centurian

 

Logitech Mouse and Keyboard Combo

 

Logitech 2.1 Speakers

 

And Some Artic Silver :)

 

With the instant rebates and shipping everything should come out to ~$810. This is mainly going to be a gaming computer and I do intend to overclock it. I'm going to order soon so just looking for any last tips, suggestions, etc... Thanks

looks ok, if anyone tries to change your mind on the Infinity series board slap them with a really big stick, but i now wish I had bought the SLI version (bought an x850xt the night i bought the board, had the x850xt die, was "traded in" on a 7800GT so yeah :'()

Well, the Ultra-D is better than the Ultra-Infinity IMO. I would also recommend a Plextor brand drive rather than the NEC one. Thirdly there are better PSU's out there especially for OCing than that Antec 480W. Other than those three things it looks good to me.

Thanks for the tips just a few things I want to point out:

 

I've got a budget and I wouldn't like to spend much more then I already am. Plextor makes nice drives but for my purposes they are too expensive, I'm not really looking for high performance in my optical drive. I just want it to be reliable, and not make too much noise basically ;) Ultra-D would be cool, but for the extra ~$20 I would pay what would I get? I'm not really interested in SLI, so I don't see any point in it...

 

About the PSU, you're probably right. Would a Fortron AX-500 Be a better choice?

i would look @ these, and from reviews and overclocks on the ram, well worth it, if only my pos venice wasnt a dud, i would be running 300mhz @ 2.5-3-3-8. perhaps i need to try a dividor??...

wait for the x1800, they got alot of pontential and from what ive seen they have been built very efficently, thus driving the price down alittle. Only the XL model is out right now but Im gunna get one of thsoe and put it in with a XT for crossfire :),

 

As for a keyboard the Saitek is a very nice keyboard. But I like this one better
