So some of you may know from this thread http://www.bitbenderforums.com/vb22/...ad.php?t=72619
I was deciding on building my Graduation gift of a high end Pc. I was torn between an AMD X2 5000 and the new Intel Duo Core E6600. After weeks of researching, I had chosen the Intel base on performance, price, and OC ability over the AMD 5000.
Intel E6600 Duo Core System
(Please note, the Vid Card was removed by NewEgg)
ASUS P5W DH Deluxe/WIFI MoBo
INTEL Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4 CPU
ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink / Artic Silver 5
G.Skill 2GB RAM (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 PC 6400
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W Power Supply
(Qty 3) WD Raptor 74GB 10,000 RPM 16MB Cache Serial ATA150 (For RAID 0)
(Qyt 2) ViewSonic VG2021m Black 20" 8ms LCD Monitor
Antec Performance I P180B Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel Case
ASUS EAX1900 CrossFire /2DH/512M Radeon X1900 CrossFire Edition 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card (Will get the second later for Crossfire)
Now, I will have everything assembled by late Thursday night. The FSB is slated at 1066 and CPU is at 2.4GHZ.
I see there are peeps out there who can easily overclock this CPU over 3GHZ. (3.5 Goal)
I will post my findings from day one and keep everyone brief on the results.
