If I may make a few recommendations:

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703009 $179<- More than enough.
MEM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146565 $89.99 (49.99 with rebate)
CPU Heatsink: http://www.petrastechshop.com/thulhecpucos.html $54 <-Better Perfomance by far, and cheaper.
Case Fans: http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1cafa.html $5 <- Louder, however with a fan controller they are near silent and cheaper.

Just a heads up, Nvidia chip sets are known to fail...so if you aren't going to go SLI I wouldn't think it necessary. And the 8800GT is performing just under the GTX at half the price.

PS: cheapo 600W for free A/R
Mobo: Gigabyte DS3
PROC: Core 2 Duo E4300 Oc'ed To 3.1 GHZ(handles 3.3 but makes me nervous)
Memory: 3 Gig Ballistix tracer DDR2-800 (one dimm went bad :-()
GPU: 7950 GS KO
Sound: Modded X-fi elite pro

Cheap setup that works quite well

Or at the very least if you modded them in the bios you could lower them to probably 4-4-4-12 or possibly quicker.

it is quite clear that you don't know much about computers. SLI ready ram lewlz.

And how do you know what my knowledge of computers is like? Never mind the fact that I was around and did work on the old PCs: when you did have to really work on system timings. The only thing that is quite clear is that there are some people here who do not care to read current computer specs

Check you're bios? What are they running at? I realize that they mem speed is rate at 533mhz, however, unless you've changed it you're not running at that. And if you are then it's pointless...As stated C2D like/and in most cases will default to a 1:1 ratio.

How about we see a screen of either the bios or CPU-Z?



What are the odds that my DDR2 800 (PC 6400) aren't running at 400mhz? Odd...I can get it to higher than 533Mhz if you want...doesn't mean much. And SLI ready products are simply a gimmick in regards to ram doesn't mean much the product is the same chip as their other product just rated higher and faster timings (for PC 1066).

True, I enable SLI ready in the BIOS, which "safely" overclocks it to the 533. It also changes the C2D ratio so that the memory sees the CPU frquency as 6997.2, CPU Multiplier as 21x, FSB as 1.3GHZ, and mem as 1067GHZ.

Whether you want to argue the validity of Nvidia SLI products, that's a seperate issue. I just had to roll my eyes when you were conjecturing what my system might be like, when I had already linked specs

My other point was that for tasks such as rendering, finding solutions for a wider bus may be more important then just frequency speeds alone. You simply need more as well as fast memory the more processes you're running.

MOBO: Abit IP35 PRO
HDD: 2x320GB, 1x160GB
GFX: Radeon HD 2600 XT (256MB)
SND: EMU 0404
PSU: Corsair HX520W
