Yeap, building a new comp. I'm just gonna post the new specs, and see what you guys think. I'm on a really tight budget, but I suppose I can expand a few bux here and there, just don't add too much to it. E6300 Gigabyte P965-DS3P MSI X1950Pro 256mb Antec TP3 650W Gonna reuse Case, HDD, DVDRW, Soundcard (Audigy2Plat), WinXP (Vista is crap. Wait till DX10 games comes out first) I've got a few choices for RAM, I'm not sure which would be better, but I'm leaning towards the Corsairs. Bear in mind I'm looking into overclocking this very heavily, so I'll need the best RAM I can get. Gskill F2-6400CL4D-2GBPK Gskill F2-6400PHU2-2GBNR Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Will be using this comp for games. And some video editing. I don't think I have to list down all the other stuff like officework, surfing, mp3, etc... The corsair's gonna set me back AUD$21 more (AUD$370). Exchange rate is about 78c to the USD I think. Btw, I'm gona be buying most of the stuff from www.msy.com.au and www.scorptec.com.au (RAM from scorptec). I may get stuff from www.cpl.net.au (green guide), but they're generally more expensive. I would be looking into upgrading the other components slowly, piece by piece as money comes in.... By the end, I want to run an 8800GTX (or the fastest at the time), alot of HDDs in Raid0 and RAID1, liquid cooling (only the best from Swiftech) in probably a Tt armor. I'd probably get aircooling to feed my OC addiction before looking into that $500 swiftech WC.... But of course, it'll get me about 1 year to get everything, so I'm worried about the current config now, I really need something to replace this Northwood dinosaur. If I don't get this now, I'll be putting it off forever, money doesn't stay in my bank account long enough, I'm been putting off this upgrade for 2 years now.
