Still awaiting mobo :(
Thats the most important among all .. the MOBO!

i'm still waiting for a nForce 590SLI mobo , Intel Edition & preferably DFI. only then i'll start collecting my Conore parts.

Ordered the E6700 today from Newegg. Still trying to get a hold of some Corsair 6400C3 RAM. I'm on the auto-notify with ZZF, and yesterday Newegg dropped it from it's inventory. Only other place I see that carries it is Monarch. I may try a pre-order with them.

Still need an SLI mobo obviously.

I'm getting the E6700, but not sure what motherboard should I get for SLI. Does Asus have a 590 SLI board?

Not yet :D As for my case, I'm gonna keep it for now...

Nothing yet. Conroe is tempting at the current pricetag, but I think I'm going to hold off for a while because I just built this system 3 months ago. My setup will last me just fine until DirectX 10 gets going. By this time next year I might do an overhaul and go with whichever platform (Intel/AMD) is out in front.

In my personal opinion, Conroe isn't really needed yet. It is tempting, though, I'll admit.

DX10 vid card and vista for me :D
still waiting....

08-16-06, 09:50 AM
E6600, OCZ PC6400 2x1GB, Club3d 7950GX2, Asus P5W DH, Scythe Samurai Z - All arrived today so it's gonna be a fun time installing for me...

Previous system was a 3800X2@2.4GHz, Corsair DDR400 2x1GB, 7800GT SLI, Asus AN8 SLI, Thermalright XP-90 << got a buyer for this lot at £550!

08-16-06, 10:16 AM
All I have is the ram,

corsair, DDR2 twin2X Matched memory xms2-8500 1066MHz 5-5-5-15 -2Gigs

Waiting for the DFI MB then I will start looking for the processors and their prices

08-16-06, 12:17 PM
YES! I Just got hold of an E6600 Retail for 364 SHIPPED! :D

It was the LAST ONE! w000hOOO!!!

08-16-06, 12:47 PM
I am going to wait until the next intel retail edge package becomes available, then I will probably buy that. If it is anything like the previous setups, it'll probably be the second or third fastest conroe in the retail package, and it'll include a decent retail motherboard. Only thing I have to buy beyond that is new ram.
