I'm looking to upgrade my computer this week. I'm looking to spend about $1000. I am going to keep my optical drives, hard drives, monitor, keyboard, mouse, OS and case. I will be upgrading my motherboard, processor, video card, memory and power supply. With the upcoming price drop VR-Zone : Technology Beats - Intel Desktop CPU Price Cut On July 22 I think the Q6600 will be affordable. I recognize it won't be the best platform for gaming but I think quad core is going to be the future and I wouldn't mind getting on that bandwagon now since AMD will be releasing their new chips shortly. So I'm pretty much decided on either the Q6600 or the E6850. I'm hoping to get one of these for about $300 based on those estimated prices. I have no intentions of ever running SLI mode. So I was thinking of the P35 chipset. It's newer and allows me to run DDR2 1066 memory. Other options would be the 965 or the nvidia 600 series chipsets. I think the P35 is the way to go right now. Anyone have any thoughts? I don't need a great board that overclocks great. I just need something that will run well and last. This is the board I was looking at: Newegg.com - ASUS P5K LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail ASUS P5K LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard I've heard mixed reviews about this board. Anyone have any other suggestions? I chose this because the Intel boards don't specify that they'll run 1066 memory. Memory: 2 x 1GB (2GB) DDR2 1066 memory. I've always gone with Corsair. For roughly $150 I'm I think it's a good deal. 2 x 1GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066 Dual Channel Kit Newegg.com - CORSAIR Dominator 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail Video Card: 320MB 8800GTS XFX PVT80GGHD4 GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card Here's the video Card I was looking it. Good clock speeds and good rebate. Newegg.com - XFX PVT80GGHD4 GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail Power supplies I'm a bit up in the the air about. I was looking at the 520/620 watt Corsair power supplies or something like this 650 watt Seasonic with a $20 rebate. Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT ATX12V / EPS12V 650W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, TUV, FCC - Retail For power supplies I want something good quality and something relatively quiet. Having a fan blowing inside the case is a bonus for my current setup so I was looking at the Corsair. Any suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks. All in all my budget looks something like this: $300 processor $150 motherboard $150 memory $275 video card $125 power supply Which comes to about $1000 + shipping which should bring me to roughly the $1000 mark. I wouldn't mind going over budget and spending more the motherboard if needed.
