I am looking for suggestions on what to get for my next comp. It will be used for gaming / multimedia and I will be overclocking it.
What I don't need:
-Peripherals (including monitor)
-Operating System (I will use XP Home)
-Hard drives (I will use the new VelociRaptor as my primary drive and a Seagate 7200.10 for my secondary drive)
-GPU's (I will use two Evga 8800GTS G92's in SLI)
What I do need:
-CPU (Core Two Duo / Quad / Extreme)
-Case (I think I would like to try an acrylic case)
-Cooling (I think liquid cooling for at least the CPU and northbridge would be a good option if the budget favors it).
-Optical and floppy drive (I dont need a Blue-Ray writer / reader)
-Anything else that I may be forgetting?
The motherboard must have at least two PCI-e x16 2.0 slots so I can run my cards in SLI.
Budget: Approximately $1,500 I prefer to buy from NewEgg because they have good shipping charges to Hawaii.
CPU: Core Two Duo 2.13 GHz. E6400 OC'ed to 3.0 GHz. / 380 FSB RAM: 2 GB. Corsair 800 MHz. XMS2 DDR2
GPU: X1900XT 512MB Connect3D Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
PSU: 535 watt Enermax Whisper II HD: (2) 320 GB. Seagate Barracuda 16 MB. 7,200 RPM SATA II
OD: 52X DVD±RW Monitors: (2) Hanns-G JW199D 19" 16:10 widescreen DVI in extended desktop mode
