New member & New Rig!

  1. Hey all,

    Longtime fan of techspot, but finally registered today.

    Here's the new Rig I'm putting together. Did some research (read alot on Techspot & asked alot of ppl), but open to any comments.

    I think it should be a pretty solid gaming machine once I get it together:

    - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0G 6M 1333 164 S775
    - Asus PQ-E S775 P45 ATX DDR2 1200 Mhz 1600/1333 FSB SATA GBLAN
    - BFG Tech PS800W ATX 12v 2.2 & EPS12v 2.91 Silent 130mm Fan
    - Sapphire HD4870 Radeon 512M GDDR5m 2x DVI
    - Thermalright U-120E Ultra Extremem Heatsink
    -> With Scythe S-Flex 120MM 150000 hrs Blue led
    - G-SKill DDR2 PC2 8500 4GB kit (8 layers pcb)
    - WD HD WD6400AAKS 640GB SATA 3G 7200 rpm 16MB bare drive
    - WD 160GB 7200 RPM 8 MB (This is the System drive)
    - LG GGC-H20L Blu-Ray HD-DVD
    All packed away into a nice Antec Nine Hundred Case and
    added to a Samsung 226BW 22" LCD monitor.

    Going to start with XP as the OS but I understand that Radeons work better under DirectX 10, so we'll see about Vista.

    Can't wait to fire it up!
