So, new project going here. I got a pleasent surprise in the mail today. It was a package from Tech Data, containing a new Asus P5N-T Deluxe mobo. Now the story here is, I bough this card when I built my new rig, then sent it back cause the optical out wasn't functioning, and I got a new mobo back. Now, I suddenly get another new mobo, free of charge!
So, this means that I will have to build another rig, so that my girlfriend will stop complaining about not being able to play CoD4 on the LANs at work cause she's on a crappy Toshiba laptop.
So here's the deal, I've got the mobo, a FSP Epsilon 600w PSU, 320GB SATA2 HDD (courtesy of my not-so-technical father who gave it to me when it went bonkers, and bought a new one instead), the stock cooler for my CPU, and I'll probably give her an old case I've got lying around. I'm also contemplating on giving her the Cruicial BallistiX DDR2 8500 2GB-sticks I've got in my rig, and buying something better for myself.
Now, the rest I may need some advice on, but here goes:
CPU: Core2Duo E8400 (cause it's cheap and good, maybe I will keep this for myself and give her the Q6600)
GFX: Now, this have to be cheap, since I'm rather strapped on funds, but it's gotta be at least 8800GT. Any advice?
RAM: I was wondering if I should go for OCZ on my rig, and give her the Cruicial-sticks, but I'm not that up-to-speed on what's better in this department, so help me out here.
Now, give me all the good advice you can, so she will stop whining.
