Ok, we all have some knowledge I would guess about the great things you can buy to build a great pc. Well, after realizing that my pc of 4 years is outdated (games and some software can't be loaded) the wife and I decided it's time to get a new one. But alas, I got a green light to kill! She basically said this:
"Ok, if you're going to do it, go all the way!"
So I did. Here are the specs:
Case: CoolerMaster - Cosmos
CPU: AMD X2 Dual Core 5600+
Memory: 1GB DDR2 PC6400 Corsair
Mobo: Asus M2NSLI-32 DLX nForce 590 SLI
GPU: (2 of them) XFX GeForce 8600gt 512 PCI (joined together via SLI)
PSU: CoolerMaster 600 Watt Extreme Power
Storage: Maxtor 250GB SATA II 3.GB 7200RPM
Sound Card: Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer
OS: Vista & XP Professional
12-IN-One Internal Card Reader
The case came with 3 large fans and the CPU is being chilled by CoolerMaster Liquid cooling kit. Upgrades will be better storage and more RAM. And of course I have to toss the burner for a Plextor PX-810SA. Below are some pics of the interior and exterior. The case I recommend highly. Go to the website to check it out. It's just one of those cases that takes care of everything for a LONG TIME! Everything else is personal choice.
