I should probably ask the great community the same stuff I was going to ask Jakup -_-

Anywho, I recently moved out-of-state and since then have been out of the PC latest and greatest loop. I'm looking to ugprade, and currently in my shopping are the following items...

** Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6700 - Retail

** ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe Socket T (LGA 775) NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

** G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8000PHU2-2GBHZ - Retail (2 of these sets)

** PC Power & Cooling S61EPS EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40C Power Supply - Retail

** eVGA 01G-P2-N592-AX Geforce 7950GX2 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Dual GPU Video Card - Retail


I plan on using my same case/monitor/HDD's/sound card.

I haven't kept up on any of the new boards and in-depth tweaking guides and such, but I do know that these CPU's overclock easily on stock Vcore, that's my goal. My major concern was the RAM. As you can see I'm going for 4gb of the G'skill. In my current system I ran into timing issues because of the 4-module rule. I couldn't run 1T timings because I was running 4 modules, if I go down to 2 modules, I can do 1T timings easily. Now, is this still an issue with current systems? (And this motherboard, in particular). If that's the case, I might consider dropping down to 2gigs...

Anywho, any commens or questions are welcome... like I said, I've been out of this neck of the woods for almost 9 months now :)

That memory will most likely give you issues....but I could be wrong.

Hey Hugo!

Yes stay away from that motherboard and memory! I would probably suggest going with an Intel chipset if you are sticking with a single card, the NForce4 board is decent, but has loads of memory compatiblity issues. If you want to stick with that board, go Corsair :D

Yeah that's probably a good idea, but how's overclocking? I'd like to hit a handsome overclock (3.4ghz sound reasonable?) with this setup... and I dont ever plan on getting a 2nd card since I hear they wont support DX10. Also, what do you think about that Power Supply? Im not hardcore enough for a 1kw one :P.

And what do you know about the 1T/2T timing issue that used to exist in motherboards when running 4+ RAM modules? Is it still a problem with this newer ram and these newer chipsets? I called your house twice and you weren't there -_-

overclocking kinda sucks with that board i have friend with the p5n32-sli deluxe and i could only get his e6600 to about 3.0 ghz before the board hit its limit
325x9 if i recall

if you want an overclocking board stick to the intel based boards
i hear the asus p5b deluxe is an awesome o/cing board but not sure
i think PeterJensen on here has the same board, so he might be able to give you some feed back

Ya small change of setup, going with the P5B Deluxe (wifi) instead, and 2gb's of Patriot PC-8000... I can't wait!

Good change ;) At XtremeSystems the P5B seems to be extremely popular.
