I want this processor to start with:
I love these:
(I already have one, my plan is to go 0 RAID!)
Motherboard (complications in choosing; what I need)
I need two onboard SATA connectors for dual 74gb raptors and it has to be compatible with the processor. I have been an ASUS user for 5 years...if I had to deter, I'd go Intel...but do you know of any ASUS that works for my setup so far? (would my current board cover the above? P5GV-MX, fyi, mobo has to be same size or smaller than my current one, because I have a Zalmann on my current processor)
I saw this mobo
Will it work for all the above?
I need a power supply for the following:
processor, mobo, dvd burner, 5 hard drives(2 raptors), pci vid card, two 120mm fans...not sure what else would require power.
Recommendations for the above and everything in questions 1-3?
5) I have a pci express card...but I wouldn't mind checking out some sweet recommendations for pc games that demand so much.
I like...no, need Nvidia graphics....EVGA I've owned two cards with them, but I'm open to different recommendations regarding manufacturers. Yes, has to be PCI express for the mobo above.
6) Regarding the mobo in the link I provided in # 3, here is the memory listings. I need 1 gigabyte of RAM.
What should I go with? I want FAST!
Thank you for reading, I will thoroughly enjoy the ensuing conversation because you experts are all great.
ps...I only plan on ordering through Newegg.com.
