That will hardly help, unless you were gonna use it for something like Folding.
I am now using a Q6600 Quad Drive which i will overclock with a tuniq tower 120.
Also can Rage or domeboady tell me what type of graphics cooler i would need?
Why would you want an aftermarket cooler for the GTX 280? It already has a dual-slot cooler, and the only decent aftermarket cooler for it, the Thermaright HR-03 GTX, dumps the heat from the card inside the case. It will also make SLI very, very difficult due to the monstrous size of the heatsink.
Its better than mine I can tell you that.
Why what specifications does your pc have, is it high end
oh yeah about the wi-fi is there anything rage or anybody else would reccomend for wifi, router
I use a US Robotics 9108 router, and like it. It can't forward too many ports though, so if you're into playing BF2 or any game that requires you to forward more than 30 ports, you should look for another router.
I have a few questions:
1. Can anyone reccomend a wireless controller for the pc (not an xbox 360 one)
2. Can you get DUALSHOCK controllers for computers
3. If I use a DVI, to HDMI adapter on my graphics can I connect it to my HD 32" LCD Television ------1366 x 768---------
As you may have noticed I want to use it as a form of a console at some times so I can sit on a couch and play games, but still be able to play normally
Please answer ALL my question
The PC will perform very good. You may consider buying a quad-core CPU since they are beginning to be the standard although the core duo you picked out won't let you down. Buy a good power supply. :grinthumb
how good is my new decision on motherboad "Abit Pro Xe" it comes as part of a bundle between my ram, cpu, and motherboard. On overclockers.co.uk (apparently an enthusiast bundle)
Rumble Pad 2 Cordless
Abit may be exiting the mobo business, so you might not get any support if anything goes wrong with the mobo. Better buy an ASUS or a Gigabyte mobo, just in case.
Sounds like a solid system. I agree with Rage, Abit might not be a good choice right now. Best go with a different brand. I wonder if you might consider stepping up to a GTX 280? If you want top performance, that's the way to go. GTX 280 or HD4870X2.
yeah but in performance terms how well would it suffice?
and can u recomend any controllers?
LOL dayum what was your total gtx280 and etc
and i'd say get a logitech controller those rumblepads
its not wireless but wired stuff are always better because you get the full connection
its like saying a wireless mouse from a wired one
besides, I don't think their are any wireless ones for pc or i've never seen any
i checked and you can , anyway:
how about this bundle
same processor (Q6600)
LESS RAM 2Gb 1066 (run 32 bit xp proffesional)
Asus P5N-T Deluxe nForce 780i Motherboard
does going from 4Gb's of 800MHz Ram, to 2 Gb's of 1066 on a 32 bit machine make much difference, bearing in mind that while the ram is less the motherboard will be better
Processor: Athlon 64 X2 6400+ 3.2GHz
Board: MSI K9A2 Platinum
RAM: 2GB DDR2 1066 crucial ballistix tracer
VIdeo card: MSI N260GTX OC 896MB
Power supply: 600W Thermaltake
The video card and board are good? or is better change them.....thx
how about this compilation
Q6600 Energy Efficient Edition (£163.29)
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UDL Intel P45 Chipset (£105.79)
OCZ 4Gb 1066MHZ Platinum Series (£62.09)
Corsair PSU (the same one) (£80.49)
BFG GTX 260 OC Maxcore (£247.24) may get a gtx 280 due to price cut
Tuniq 120 (£31.04)
could rage comment on this please, or anybody
@saint19, go with an E8400 and either the P5Q Pro or the GA-EP45-UD3P. I'd also advise going with a Corsair 650TX instead of that Thermaltake PSU. Lastly, change the card to an HD 4870 512MB\1GB
@gabrielhobro, replace the Q6600 with an E8400, get an HD 4870 1GB and this cooler instead. Everything else is fine.
I just have a query about the processor because woudn't it be faster with four core overclocked to 3.4 than 2 at 4+
or he could try the AMD cpu equivalent
No. More cores doesn't mean better performance, gaming-wise.
how good are these Phenom II Processors, what i mean is what is the difference between them and the original oheoms
The Phenom II CPUs are 45nm chips, have more cache, higher clock speeds and better OCing potential when compared to the original Phenom chips. They're able to match the performance of the Core 2 Quad 45nm CPUs as well.
