What do you think of this upgrade. Will have to last me til the end of the year at least and possibly til a couple months after.

Replace the e6420------>Q6600 G0 edition
Replace the evga 680i--------->Asus P5E3 Deluxe Intel X38
Replace the Crucial Ballistix 2x1gb------> OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) PC2-6400C4 800MHz Reaper HPC Enhanced Bandwidth Edition Dual Channel
Replace the ThermalTake purepower 680w with whatever I can find :lol:


Your thoughts? The mobo should support DDR3 when I want to go, and should also support 45nm as well as pci 2.0.


The evga is just pissing me off now :)

If you have a DDR3 mobo, can you still put DDR2 in it? :D

You can't use "OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) PC2-6400C4 800MHz Reaper HPC Enhanced" in the P5E3. This is a DDR3 only board.

If your not getting crossfire then theres no point for that. Might as well grab a P35 motherboard instead ;) Or.. Keep the great 680i instead :p

why not go h2o Dren72Me? On my new rig (next week)? No need to go H2O with a 45nm setup. They tested 4GHz on air no problem. I think the Extreme 120 will keep things in check. :)
