if you really want NEC, just don't buy AD-7190A or AD-7191A those are Lite-on rebadged as NEC.

best NEC woudl be AD-7200 or AD-7201 or AD-7203 series.

plus why such odd size for ram? 3gb?

looks pretty good, but i'd change two things.

go with 4gb of crucial ballistix and something a little better than the thermaltake PSU. maybe corsair TX750?

i already have the thermaltake psu
ill go with 2 gig of crucial then thanks for the replys i just want a stable system and go sli @ some point.

are you gonna use the stock heatsink?

I would save the money you're spending on the quad, get a E8400, 4 Gb of RAM and a good CPU cooler. But that's just me :D

02-27-08, 01:44 PM
yep gonna use the stock cooler for a while..

we have the same case revs how are those noctuas silent are they ive got some orderd..

Yup, superb coolers, as long as they're not obstructed. They're not good pushing restricted air. Otherwise they're the best by far IMO
