Hi all, I'm putting together a new system and it's been awhile since I have been in the forums and read stuff on Intel Core 2 Duo and 8800 SLI systems. I have on hand the following.
EVGA 122-CK-NF68_AR LGA 775nForce 680i mobo
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66Ghz processor
2x EVGA Geforce 8800GTX 768MB GDDR3 GPA's
2x WD Raptor 10krpm 72Gig in raid 0
PC Power and Cooling 750 Quad Pwr Sup.
Corsair Dominator 2GB DDR2 1066 RAM
Creative X-Fi Xtreame Gamer
Has anyone found issues with any of these components or exclusive set up profiles that work well for our use here. I know a bit about the drivers for video CCA's and using SFR. I have all the latest tweeking guides for those. I'm just wondering about OC'n the processor and heat issues. I'm not using water cooling, but my case has a ton of 120 and 200mm fans. I'm using a Zalman 9700 cooler on the processor. I have to go away this weekend and I'm still waiting on a serial drive for a Dump truck. I need to trasfer some files/drivers and programs from this computer so I'll have em before I power up the beast http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif and load the OS for the first time. Any and all suggestions except for shipping you the new puter http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif will be greatly appreciated...... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Thanks fellers...

After dealing with constant crashes and cannot figure out the problem on this nearly 4 year old system I am getting a new system similar to yours. The exceptions being a QX6700 (it is a little less expensive than the E6800. Still cant figure that one out), larger Raptors, and a larger Power supply. I wanted to wait for BoB but the system I have now is just about dead. I strongly believe that I will have to upgrade again when BoB comes out. I guess that is the way it goes.
