Before I Order ...


Recommended Posts

So, I have this setup about to be ordered on Newegg


Lian Li PC-65B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


XFX PVT70FUND7 Geforce 7800GTX 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card


DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail


AMD Opteron 148 Venus 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor


Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS 70SB035000000 8 (7.1) Channels PCI Interface Sound Card


OCZ PowerStream OCZ520ADJSLI ATX, BTX, SATA, P4 and EPS12V 520W Power Supply


ASPIRE CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Light Cooling Fan x2


LITE-ON Black IDE DVD Burner Model

Would this be a good setup? Do I need to check compatibility on anything? Am I good to go? Would any similar part be more beneficial?


Total price: $1439



Thanks for help.

You could always go with a nice custom DangerDen or Swiftec Liquid cooling kit. I assume you'll be overclocking that opteron, and if you don't mind spending the extra time and money, a good LC kit would serve you well. :)

Bigr, how about you stop posting at OCC?


The onboard sound module on the DFI boards is known as infamous for horrible sound quality. That, and onboard sound in general SUCKS for music (at least the AC97 audio codec). And for gaming, higher quality sound can mean the difference between being raped and getting a headshot.

Well with all this stuff I was wondering... What about WARRANTIES?


Should I buy the Newegg Warranty? What is covered/not covered by warranty and for how long / how do I find out?


thanks all
