    I would get the

    1 approved mobo from ASUS

    CHIP IS FINE but get the 1333 mghz fsb one

    you only need 2 gig of ram DDR3 1333 MHZ get OCZ platinum

    SAPHIRE HD 3850 512mb is just a few £ more and make sure it is a 1SLOT CARD NO big fans as you need the ajacent pcie slot if you want a raid card

    drives are fine

    dont know about the raid card I had a Highpoint!

      A couple of points here:
      1. If you want 4 gigs of ram, get it. On install it should throw in the PAE switch to allow XP to see 3.5gigs of ram. The X38 chipset, at least on my second machine, does that.

      2. I prefer the Areca Raid or the 3ware over the Highpoint( I know George likes the Highpoint). They have more control options and are a little more expensive. I don't know if the Highpoints allow you to upgrade the onboard ram for the card, Areca does. This all comes down to personal choice. All three brands work. It depends on what you like and have read. Different testers give different results for each brand.

      3. The 3870 is in the $180 price range now. Keep in mind on some setups ATI does not play nice with other cards. Meaning, it grabs IRQ's and won't share with certain cards such as controllers and editing cards.

      4. Now that the X48 chipsets have been released you might want to look into an Asus board with that chipset.

      5. Finally, if you are going to overclock that 2.4, it will be great. This processor is in the $220-254 range. It overclocks real easy and stays cool with a good cooler. I have mine running at 3.1 without a problem. If you are not going to overclock, you might want to think about a faster processor.

        Jerry I said the HD3850... as the problem with the HD3870 is, it has a huge fan and uses the second slot for exhaust AND in doing so will cover a much needed PCIe slot If ASUS board in my sig is used.

        The slot next to Graphics card is used for PCIe raid card.

        The highpoint card is the only one I have used !
        But it gets some good tech spec reviews as do the ones you use But they are far more expensive in the UK so the Highpoint was excellent performance at the right price for me.

        I would agree 100% on the overclocking of the QX6600 GO SLACR chip there is a bunch of info on the net about its cool running at 3.3 ghz.

        What settings have you used? and have you used a 3rd part cooler?

          The settings are the tricky part. What you have to do is a lot of research to learn what each term in the bios actually translates into what action. Then you can overclock confidently.

          As far as the cooler, I never use a stock fan. I have this:
          http://www.overclockercafe.com/Revie...eme/index.html

          Without this I would not feel safe. Even if I did not overclock, I still would put a hefty cooler on the processor. Especially, if your case contains multiple drives and has very little space to ventilate.

            I know my eyesite is failing, but this sure looks like a single slot card to me!

              kikillo,

              Your build will probably work just fine. But you are trying an untested recipe and that is great if it works.

              As for Raid controllers, the models mentioned by Jerry are great and thus do cost more. If I where building a no budget system, I would be using these as well. But I am an integrator that builds many systems for resale and thus stability, reliability, performance and price are all big factors in my design.

              As Jerry pointed out, that Saphire board is a single slot width. Though the cooling fan is located toward the back of the card, which means that even a small card in the adjacent PCIe slot will be covering a portion of the fan. What I look for in these situations is a card that has the coolling fan toward the rear, like the Quadro's.

              As for overclocking, your on your own there. My builds are designed with certified components and running at speeds that are warranteed. I have got to many systems to stand behind :).

                    Thank you
                    Build it with this configuration and you will be very happy.

                    I coached Imagine Video and she is thrilled.

                    Asus P5K64 WS (GV certified, 1333 fsb & DDR3)
                    Intel QX9650 (3GHz Quad Core w/ 1333 fsb)
                    OCZ DDR3 Platinum (1333MHz Rock Solid & Fast!)
                    High Point 2310 Raid Controller (PCIe x4, 4 SATA-II/300 Ports, over 200MB/sec with only 2 drives!)
                    Quadro FX 1500 or 1700 Graphics Card (GV certified, Rock Solid, Single Slot with unobstructed cooling)
                    Use a single 7200 rpm SATA-II/300 Hard Disk for OS rather than the 10,000 rpm Raptor. (The Raptor is not SATA-II/300)

                    This recipe is certified by me, my customers and those that have followed my threads.

                      Re-configuration

                      Thank you for the configuration.twoo more questions.
                      Is't enhough 2 GB ram(OCZ DDR3)?
                      Than for the OS I take 1 HD 160 GB SATA-II/300 from ??
                      Western digital or Seagate or witch you thinks is goed.
                      And for the data 4 HD the same as for the os(also sataII/300) only bigger(500 GB each)in raid O ? is that OK.

                      Thank you again and sorry for my English (I am spanish)

                        kikillo, Yes 2GB of OCZ 1333 Platinum DDR3 RAM will be perfect with Windows XP Pro 32 bit. The 160GB SATA-II OS system drive will also be just fine, though 250GB is only a few dollars more and may be more readily available. The four 500's for RAID 0 will be great too.

                        I would use Seagate Enterprise Series drives.

                        ST3250310NS = 250GB

                        ST3500320NS = 500GB

                          George,
                          You will like the one I am researching to build now.
                          Let's just say it has an 8 port SAS UIO controller w/battery backup, Seaburg chipset, and dual quad 3.2's, 2 16x PciE 2.0, 2 PCI-x, 2 pci, 1 UIO slot.
                          Sounds tempting doesn't it.

                            What board is that? The Supermicro I know does not have a SAS controller or did you mean an add on card with battery backup?

                              Mark,
                              It is the Supermicro UIO card. It bypasses the normal card resource useage.
                              The UIO card works directly off of the PCIE chipset as if the connectors were part of the board. The card is in the $372-$400 range. That with the supermicro case makes a tidy little unit.

                              You can get it with different controllers as well.
                              The SAS appeals to me due to those new 15,000rpm SAS drives and its ability to use SATA drives as well.

                              The mobo is in the $520 range, the case in the $600, the processors $1300 range each. A pricey, yet powerful solution.
