    Default Final System Specs

    Ok guys, I spent most of the evening putting together a system I thought was fairly worthy. I plan on doing some gaming here and there, some video editing, and what not stuff. I didn't need the i7 setup, so I thought I would save a few bucks with this setup. So you guys tell me what you think, is this a descent setup? Is everything on list compatible? Still looking for a case and PSU, but of course the parts below I need to make sure it will be ok to run the latest Snow Leopard on and be able to dual boot with Windows 7 as well. Will probably pop in two 500 gig drives, a DVD drive and a DVD-RW drive as well. But just wanted to make sure the list below will work, compatible, and is fairly solid build.

    Intel Q9650 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz 12MB L2 Cache

    Gigabyte Motherboard GA-EP45-UD3P

    EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB (Possible another one in a few months. Is it possible to run SLI?)

    Mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (Going with 4 gigs at start, will probably go to a total of 8 in a few months)

    Ok so those were the four main parts....thoughts? Opinions? Thanks to anyone that can provide some feedback on what I have listed. Thanks!

    Good to hear! Spent most of the evening at the HCL Wiki site to make sure everything went well with each other....thinking this build will last me for a year or so, then possibly buy the real deal Mac Pro, or something else will come along. Looking forward to this build.

    Already have the processor. Newegg has a combo deal now with the board below and the memory for $166.50 after rebates. How good of a deal is that?

    Haha well at times it doesn't pay to be an American. Great country, but we have a lot of flaws that need to be addressed!
