    hi all, i wanted to interest u in some more hardware question :eek: can u look at this rig? and the mobo/cpu in particular, is it solid? cause there i save my bucks, and also i have same mobo/cpu also, not complaining or anything, maybe planning to upgrade/clock, so look pls..

    :cpu:Core 2 Duo E4500, Bus800Mhz, s775, 2MB
    :mb:p5B-VM s775 Conroe, G965, DDRII 800, PCI-E, VGA /// is p35 better?
    :gpu:HD 3870 512MB GDDR4 DX10.1 HDTV 2xDVI PCI-E
    :ram:4GB OCZ Vista Performance Platinum XTC
    :case:Antec Nine Hundred


    what's like old and what is solid, bout the graphic card: i can buy at same money 9600gt or 8800gt of asus or gigabyte or eVGA superclocked somethin.. :eek: i think strongly for the 9600 gt evga sooperclocked ooh that sounds nice, what y'all think pls.

    p.s btw i myself have a psu: BFG 1000w if someone will say something bout my system in between the lines.. like if ill buy the same case and get the thermaltake cooler for my hd2900 and then will i be able to clock my pc see if it can run safe if not fly off window? (my last pc did that)??? personaly my main pc problem's is heavy dust/sand!! so that's why we picked the airy case (thermaltake)
    4 my friend's rig,, if u wanted to comment bout psu i will get approrpriate psu that the budget can afford. thank you.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Cpu is getting a little old, but it still has some life, especially if you overclock it. The board is decent, and yes a p35 chipset will be better. Your 3870 is on par with a 9600GT, so no need to switch that out. Overclock it for higher performance.

    haha cool thanks,what i understand is that geforce only now come to par with the 3870's (4 de price) i feel u i feel u and i thought 9600gt is like super special, cause i have 2900 1gb and i always think that 8800 is better, and i need thermaltake cooling to get rid of noise, so i started thinkin geforce rulez ati bottom line, anyway its long debate. btw if i get that case its awesome no? antec nine hundred? + zalman cpu cooler + external cooler for the hd, its starting to get hardcore no?
