need advice for some new hardware
my capacitors from my 3 year old board are leaking so, I'm going to buy some new equipment.
(then maybe later solder some new capacitors on that mainboard)
I was thinking on buying something like:
maybe some advanced aircooling or cheap WC? Or should I stay with the boxed cooler?
budget: around €1000
a lot of questions, but I came to the right place, right?! ;)
go with the 3200+ it will have enough OC headroom for sure:)
start of with the stock cooling (which is quieter then Volcano 6 CU@7000rpm for sure) and when needed consider upgrading (XP-120 + silent 120mm fan)
for ram, any TCCD powered ram will do fine, Patriot XBLK offers good value for money
Thx, for the advice!
now I can order without sleepless nights
about making wrong choices
since the XP-120 + Papst is only €67 @pc-cooling.de I think I'll buy it right away (anders gaat het er weer niet van komen)
ow, and about the grafics card, I suppose there are no 6600GT's out where I succesfully can unlock the pipelines?
I wouldn't buy the Asus, too many problems with it.
I'd go for the a DFI NF4. Ultra if you like, they're very easely moddable to a full SLI model. I don't know when exactly they'll be released but it was somewhere in februari and it's best to preorder. Offcourse, there's not much known yet but those with preview samples are very pleased with it.
The Epox NF4 is also very good but I haven't seen an SLI model yet (not that I've been looking for it) and the MSI neo 4 is also very good.
I don't know what your "unknown" 3500+ is but wichever way you go (3000+, 3200+ or 3500+), get a winchester ;). I found the 11* multi from the 3500+ very handy but if it's worth the extra cost is a different question. In terms of overclocking, it doesn't seem to matter.
graka, I'll post a link for a PCIe 6600 roundup when I'm on the other PC but that asus is very expensive...
ram, same, can't read the XLS file on this pc ;) but I'd say, tccd, or if you plan on voltmodding, buying an ocz booster or a dfi, you can go for utt or seccond hand bh-5 (or soon new bh-5 :D)
PSU: OCZ modstream 520W 123€ @ bytesatwork (120mm fan so should be fairly silent)
cooler: thermalright XP-120 if it'll fit :) you can use whatever fan you like, even high power fans if you have a fancontroller or fanbay.
.XLS file is list from PC-Memory-Upgrade :)
6600 roundup: http://www.digital-daily.com/video/6600gtr/index04.htm
right, lol, I forgot I got the link from madshrimps :wtf:
You can buy a X800XL for 300€ in .de
If you wanna spend 275€ on a 6600GT maybe consider the X800XL.
Other good brands of GT's are galaxy and leadtek.
I only found the gainward for 291€ @MPL :(
a friend of mine pointed me in the MSI way for the motherboard,
the MSI K8N SLI PLATINUM SOCKET 939 is already available and
a lot cheaper, again I'm unsure about it's performance.
If the MSI is any good, then this will be what I'm buying:
MSI K8N SLI PLATINUM SOCKET 939 169,50 (Tones)
OCZ modstream 520W 123,00 (bytes@work)
XFX GEFORCE 6600GT 128MB PCI-E TV-OUT/DUAL DVI RETAIL 215,00 (PC WAREZ)
Amd Athlon 64 3200+ boxed socket 939 Winchester 189,00 (PC WAREZ)
Patriot PDC1G3200+XBLK 251,00 (pc-memory-upgrade.co.uk)
