    Im putting together my second rig tonight with all my old parts(p5b deluxe, e6600, 4gig OCZ gold 800, 9600gt, antec 550 PS) so when I get the rest of the parts tommorow I wont have to disasemble this one! I will just have all my parts laying out! Oh the rampage came in today WHOOOWEE, man it looks amazing.

    +1 on gary, +1 on ur sig intel, +1 on the quote jbunch!

    J, youll have to keep us posted on what you end up doing, when your ready, Im happy to help you look around for parts.

    I almost forgot!@ - clubit.com. I get a few things from there, they normally only have hardware but they can have some great prices on stuff.

    I actually keep a folder in my bookmarks of all the places I find for parts. Its so hard to remember all the sites when your actually ready to start shopping around!

    well thanks again for your help!
    i know ill be needing some more help or advice here shortly...
    i love clubit i bought allot of my first rig from there i usually shop at newegg,tiger,clubit and some other ones but for the most part those 3 are usually competitive with their prices witch is good for us! never bought from sidewinder but im sure i will very soon! looks like a great site!

    I agree on the ASUS board, Ive always used them and love them, but i will also say that gigabyte board is very very good. Ive heard many people have good luck with it. I havnt built an AMD rig in like 2 years!!! The last like 30 computers in a row have been intel!

    Id like to know how they OC, the phenoms arent that good at OCing, what proc u looking at??

    i want to get the 9850BE when it becomes more available...looks like it has great potential and i read one that said it could do 2.9ghz stable so im looking at that one...

    the only prob i see with the asus board is that expensive! i was going to get it but the gigabyte board looks very tempting! ive always used gigabyte i love their boards...ahhh!! cant decide!!!
    i was really hoping to buy a board tonight though!

    well my rampage formula was alot of money, but I think it will be worth it, Ill let you know tommorow,

    I look at it this way, you may spend like 50 or 100 more now, but that board might last another 6 months or so. Before I got my p5b deluxe, I had a p5b e, hated it, and got the deluxe after 2 months. So I wasted the 110 bucks basically. I always think its worth getting the good product - then you can never regret going cheap!

    **EDIT - and Im saying this like the gigabyte is a bad board, if it does what you want, then just go gigabyte!!

    yup i bought that board!
    it will be at my door on Monday!
    but as far as the 3870X2's i might just have to wait till the 4870X2 is released because by the time i have enough money for that they might be out

    go with thermalright, but that cooler has about the same performance as Ultra 120 Extreme

    you can get a swiftech H20-220 compact @ the EGG right now for $139.99 pretty damn good deal, and IT is expandable ;)

    dont waste your money on the ultra or the coolit

    Oh no, dont get the amd quad core.... their not up to par with there processors yet, you might regret it a little. Their video cards are amazing now though. Get a new intel quad core for now.
