    Cool Hey Everyone! Another new build thread

    Hi everyone from PureOC! I'm new here (as you can see, my very first post) but I before I registered I've been through the forums quite a few times before and I must say that the community here is quite helpful and extremely welcoming.

    I just need your feedback with my new build and I just have a few questions here and there on this and that. I will be extremely greatful for your help.

    AMD Phenom II x6 1055T
    ECS GTX 460 1GB (SLI) (looking into MSI Hawk version)
    Asus M4N98TD-EVO (AM3) $135 (Is this board AM3+? Wondering for bulldozer)
    G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1666mhz 4GB (may upgrade to 8gb later). Can anyone suggest timings I should be looking for or are they all the same?
    Antec Skeleton
    Corsair TX750W
    Leadtek DTV2000DS Dual Digital TV Tunner
    BenQ G2420HD
    2 x SAMSUNG SpinPoint F3 1TB (hoping to RAID1) <---- may even look at F4s (2x320gb)
    OCZ Vertex 2 60GB
    Logitech X-530
    Xonar D1
    AD700 + Zalman Clip on Mic

    Yea, it's a pretty gaming heavy build however I need the 6 cores because of my passion for making videos and also I think it's pretty good for the next 3 years at least.
    I won't be getting this setup any time too soon, more like early next year? So if there is anything noticeably good coming out soon, that would be a nice help! I hope the 6XXX radeon series will push gtx460 prices down !

    I'm going to try overclock heavily so any advice on that is appreciated! I think that is all, any suggestions for my build would be awesome and last piece of information is that I'm going to try keep this all under $2000AU. Right now its at like $1950AU =(. Umm,, btw I might even be purchasing from the US instead of AUS.. maybe there will be a real saving, I'll have to look around first though.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    If your looking to get a Bulldozer when there released then I would just hold off until then, they will require a completly different board to be used (AM3+/AM4) what ever there going to call it. That would be your best bet since your more than likely waiting until next year anyways, as for the 6xxx series of AMD cards keep your eye's open they are almost here

    yea i think i could wait until the new mobos come out, hopefully they will have SLI technology in them though, really loving the reviews for the GTX460s!

    The Corsair TX 750 is a very good PSU but it is not modular. Look into the HX series. The HX series is modular and will help with cable management.

    HX series is slightly better but the TX is very good. IMO, bump it to a 850W. In the long run its good to have a little more leeway.

    i was actually thinking i could try to get it down to HX650W but i decided it was too risky, especially with all the modding I intend to do.. all the blinging out hehehe,
    i also decided maybe i should wait until SLI hack for GTX460s on xfire mobos comes out to get a better mobo with sata3 and all that cool stuff

    i dont think 850W is necessary, I dont upgrade much, i plan on just using this computer, overclocked for 3-5 years then upgrading to a whole new system with the latest from those years!
