Hi there, i'm looking to overhaul my pc and transform it into a high-end gaming machine so looking at upgrading mobo, processor, HDD, memory and graphics card. I've been searching these boards trying to figure out the best i can buy for less than £500 and have come up with the list below. Is there an advantage to having 2 hard drives - one with operating system and one with everything else, it would be nice to incorporate my existing hard drive if i can.
My current PSU is:
1 x Antec TruePower Trio 650W PSU - With 3x 12v Rails and 120mm Fan
I'm looking at buying the below:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Energy Efficient 95W edition Socket 775
Arctic Cooling AC-FRZ-7P Freezer 7 Pro Socket 775 Processor Cooler
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 DHX Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL4(4-4-4-12)
PowerColor HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card
750GB Samsung HD753LJ SATAII HDD
Now i'm not sure what the best mobo would be and i know there are alot out there, i've been looking at:
Asus P5Q PRO P45 Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
or ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP AiLifestyle Series P35 Socket 775 Socket eSATA 8 channel Audio
But i really don't know what i should be looking for or what would be best
Do you think the above looks ok or should i change something around? Also i'm assuming my PSU will be ok, what should i check to make sure it is?
Any help would be appreciated
