    righty ho got £800 to build a rig already have 1 dvd reader and 2 nec writers also have a 36gb raptor which i use as a boot drive and then i have 3 sata 160gb and a 200gb sata2 drive have floppy 1.44 and a chieftech case with a antec true power 400 or 420 psu i also have recently (rushed in and bought a xfx 7800gs agp card which i am going to sell)

    so hopefully when things have settled down i hope to have around £950 ish what i am after is a system that will last around 15 months i game alot and download the odd thing or two i also do a lot of video encoding and editing so im after something with a bit of a punch behind it.

    any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated

    punctuation is your friend... ;)


    to be honest with DX10 just a few months out you may be better off banking it till christmas time otherwise youl be "graphically speaking" out of date in under 6 months. just something for you to consider :)

    If you want crossfire then get the master ATI card for now and add another card later.

    Wasn't sure about your PSU so i included another one.

    I'd go for GhostRider's rig but keep the 7800GS. When DX10 cards come out use the extra money saved to buy a real good one. In the mean time overclock the nads off of that E6600.

    what im confused about is the 7800gs card is a agp card not a pci-e card ?
    so the card wont fit the intel board will it ? or am i way off the mark here ?

    You're right sir. Now I feel like a total knob. :o

    How about an X1800XT then? :) What resolution is your monitor?

    No problem kido

    my monitor is a dell 20.1 and as a 1600 x 1200 resolution the rig ghost rider put up for me will the intel mboard easily overclock as i have only ever had abit asus and dfi boards ? to billytheimpaler dont worry about it just thinking of how many graphics cards are out there now is confusing in itself lol :D

    cheers corrsa
