    I am building computers. I need some advice on the motherboard and perhaps some suggestions on the case and PSU. I know that I have two on there. I want suggestions if you have any.

    So, I bought a new computer recently. The parts are as follows:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
    Inno3D Geforce 8800GT 512MB
    Kingston KVR800D2N5K2/2G 2x1GB 800MHz DDR2 kit
    ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
    ANTEC Nine Hundred
    Corsair VX550W

    Tell me how much it sucks/rules!

    Could work as recommendations, too.

    Should have went with a Core 2 Duo.
    Love the tower (Hey I bought the same! )
    Love the video card (though Inno3D is not cherry picked like eVGA, BFG or XFX brands)
    Memory is decent, standard quality
    Power supply is good quality

    Nice build I'd say.

    The CPU you have listed is good. Go with the P182, and grab this:

    Would've done so on both counts, but this shit is expensive as it is.
    How significant a performance difference does the choice of AMD CPU make, by the way?

    A pretty good bit, especially when you compare Price:Performance.

    http://www.hothardware.com/Articles/..._RV670/?page=7

    It's a review of the early phenom cpus, but they have the 6400+ and the 5600+ listed, just remember that you're in between them :P

    What C2D model are we talking about exactly? It seems to me that the E6600 is only slightly better, but costs 40% more. I guess I must be missing something, then.

    Oh yeah, I forgot we were comparing the athlon to the C2D. Did you see all the benchmarks? The E6600 woops the phenom and athlon's in gaming.



    The 6000+ will actually be a slight bottleneck for the card, but really overall you still get some great performance out of it

    Check the E8400 series. These babies overclock to 3.6Ghz without fiddling with the voltage and 4Ghz with a slight bump.

    What is the P182? Also, would I have to get a different type of memory to go with this motherboard? I don't know much when it comes to getting the individual parts for a computer.

    Might I suggest this memory instead?

    Crysis runs just fine on near-max settings, so I'm not complaining.

    What do you guys think of this for a one-card setup? Evga GTX570?

    Have you looked into the HD6870 at all?

    Thought about it, but Radeon drivers have been pretty unreliable last I read. I would probably get one if I ever found myself needing multiple monitors. Been hearing good things about Nvidia's drivers, 3dvision, physx, and cuda. I thought maybe i'd get that 570 and do a slight overclock to hit the speeds of the 580. I am looking for a single gpu one card setup, nothing over $400. I heard the 570 is a great card?
