Fianlly Got My New Rig Figured Out

Recommended Posts

Well, I believe I've got all the parts for my new gaimg rig picked out. I wanna see what y'all think.

I've already got 2 parts of it and am waiting to buy the rest (I am broke as can be right now)

Case:

Antec Nine Hundred

Motherboard:

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition

and the parts I plan to buy:

Power Supply

OCZ GameXStream 700W PSU

Processor:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Windsor

RAM:

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

Video Card:

EVGA e-GeForce 8800GT 512MB

either that or if I find the cash (or maybe use EVGA's Step-Up program)

EVGA e-GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB

Hard Drive:

Seagate Barricuda 250GB SATA300 16MB cache

DVD Burner(s)

Pioneer 20X DVD-/+RW DL Burner

I'll get 2 of these probably

Most likely I'll be running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium

So what do ya'll think about this rig?

the performance difference isn't big enough to matter and the 5600 uses less power. I was originally gonna 6000 until I found that out.

I love that antec 900. I got it and I am happy I did. Keep all the fans on low, and it will keep your CPU niiice and cool. My cpu fan always runs on low which is very nice.

If you want you can turn up the fans, but they can get loud...

Yeah, normally I like to pick cases that not everyone has but the ratings were so high, I didn't care how popular it was and I'm glad I got it. It's construction is far more solid than that of my Aspire X-Plorer and the side panels have a much smarter design for the rails than other cases I've seen. They go on far more easily than others.

Sounds like one heck of a system you got going there.

If you decide to add it to one of Jeffs giveaways, you can count me in on trying to win it..... :rolleyes::thumbsup:

with as much as i'm gonna spend on it, I don't think so. It's hard enough for me right now just to save up for a few of the parts. I can't afford any of the parts right now due to a very bad habit of mine (anime DVD's). If it weren't for that, I'd probably have already had the processor and maybe memory by now.
