Ordered My New Rig


Feb 18, 2009
A bunch of people helped me out on here, I finally ordered the rig, should get hear tomorrow or Wednesday; I'm excited can't wait!

Here's what I ended up ordering:

Motherboard - Asus P5Q-E P45 chipset
Processor - Intel Core 2 Quad 6600
Cooler - Xigmatek 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler with retention bracket
Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 x2 2gig
Ram - 8GB (4 x 2GB) G.Skill PI Black DDR2 800
Hard Drive - Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB
PSU Corsair - 850TX 850W PSU
Case - Apevia X-Supra G-Type (black)

Total cost after Newegg standard delivery was $1493.90 This does include a logitech gaming grade optical mouse, keyboard, 22 inch acer monitor, windows vista home premium OEM, DVD±R burner, thermal compound and a free 15 foot USB cable that came with my cooler.

I'll post up pics of the build and tell how it went once I get it, put up some benchmarks as well, since my video card comes with 3d Mark Vantage and I'm getting Crysis and Fallout 3.

I wonder how it will compare to this sites $1500 rig.

And thanks guys for all your help, several things that were suggested to me were part of the final system.
