hey guys. waiting until my parts get in the mail tomorrow or tuesday, and looking for some advice.
my computer will be for mostly gaming, surfing the internet, etc.

Want to know how long the mother board will last, as a guess, if i don't overclock it, and how long it will last if i do.

Also need to know if overclocking it will even have a purpose or if my computer will run awesome as is.

Build:

Video Card: (Using 2 of them)
EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

RAM:
OCZ 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3X1333LV6GK

Mother Board:
ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Harddrive:
Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Processor:
Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601920

Power Supply:
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply




So, yeah. Mostly will be playing WoW, Diablo2, Downloading things like music and movies, large files such as iso's for my psp..etc. just want to know which to go with and why... love the help. Thanks.

That's gonna make a sweet rig!
No clue as to how long it will last overclocked, but if it's kept clean & cool it should / may / might / possibly last until the newest software releases require more power than your rig can provide.....

If you keep it within ASUS/Intels specs your MB will last:

Stock will last 13 years, 4 months, 28 days, 14 hours and 49 seconds

Overclocked will last 12 years, 10 months, 14 days, 11 hours and 32 seconds

SO, you can get the performance of a $1,000 processor for $280 and it will only cost you 6 months, 14 days, 3 hours and 17 seconds of MB life.

Enjoy the new rig!!

 


:eek: Just one question how did you get those figures :sweat: :bounce:
