Post New PC
Hey i'm ordering my new pc this week need a lil help pls k thx

What's better

(Sckt775)Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E8500 CPU @ 3.16GHz 1333FSB 6MB L2
or
(Quad-Core)Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz 1066FSB 8MB L2

Both exactly same price,

Also is (QX9650 support) Asus P5QL Pro P43 Chipset LGA775 FSB1600 DDR2/1066/800 Mainboard w/GbLAN,USB2.0,&7.1Audio good?

+ 4gb ram.

Oh one more thing

NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT 512MB 16X PCI Express Video Card(Major Brand Power by NVIDIA)
OR
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 16X PCI Express[+£25]
Or
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 16X PCI Express[+£40]

Is there much difference between the 3 compared to the price? Thx <3

edit: is it worth getting crossfire 2 gfx cards?

im the top core because its 3.12ghz or w/e which is sick overclocked compared to the other.

And dont do dual sli or xfire cause its a waste of money imo unless you want to orgasim over the looks of crysis on high spec imo.

Get the Quad core, get an 8800GTX, the GeForce 9 series is just a more power conserving version of the 8800 chipset.

Kthx for help.

Semi-final choice ordering tomorrow:

  • Bosse Galaxy III Mid Tower Black/ Side-panel Window
  • LC Silent Giant 550W Power Supply 140mm FAN
  • (Quad-Core)Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz 1066FSB 8MB L2 + paying more for better fan
  • (QX9650 support) Asus P5K SE/EPU Intel P35 Chipset LGA775 FSB1600 DDR2/800 Mainboard w/GbLAN,USB2.0,&7.1Audio
  • (Req.DDR2 MainBoard)4GB (2x2GB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory £23 extra for a better brand i heard that the basic cheap 4gb ram is shit
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 16X PCI Express
  • 500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
  • SONY DUAL FORMAT 20X DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW DRIVE DUAL LAYER
  • PCI Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Network Interface Card
  • Professional Wiring for All WIRINGs Inside The System Chasis with High Performance Thermal Compound on CPU()
  • Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium w/ Service Pack 1 32 BIT
  • Free T-shirt + Briefcase.

All of this falls to £4 below how much money i have in my bank. If i don't need to pay extra for better make of ram then i'll put the rest of money into a G15 or razer lycosa/tarantulaa.

Hope this was an interesting read :shock: plx let me know if you spot an error i.e 550PSU not being enough? and the Ram thing? (light green are my still not sure's)Thanx in advance :)


Edit: I wont be overclocking in the near future. (When it gets older i will in like a year?)

There is no point in getting 4gb ram if your getting Windows 32 bit.


And I would also suggest the 4870 which is cheaper than the 9800 GTX and almost just as powerful.

nVidia = better support, less chance of failing hard within a month
4GB is a "May as well" situation, even if its a 32 bit OS

its well good i tried 3dmark but Either your hardware is too new, too old or too rare - we don't know enough of it to give an accurate estimation. Sorry.

Anyone know any other thing i can use to test it?
