You may want to consider a 8800 GT video card instead of the 8600GT - it's much faster and not much more money.

Which One To Choose?


What are you going to use the computer for? Gaming? Or Office use?

The processor is on the high-end. It's actually overkill for normal word processing / internet surfing. It's pretty good if the computer is for gaming.

Your motherboard is okay, but not great. Perfect for office use, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming. It will not be very upgradable. It lacks RAID, and SLI/Crossfire support, and it only has two slots for ram, not four, making upgrading your RAM expensive.

My suggestion for a motherboard is the Asus P5N-D:
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=627&l4=0&model=2033&modelmenu=1

That one has RAID, SLI, two PCI Express ports, four ram slots, and also has a 5.1 sound card built in.

If you do decide to upgrade your video card, I suggest an NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX. They're about $200 and quite good for gaming.

Don't forget the other things your computer needs:
450 watt PSU or better
cpu fan, chassis fan
thermal grease / silicone paste

P5N-SLI


HI stukove2000,
What is the 5200 stand for?
Here is Asus approved CPU list link for the P5N-E SLI MB:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E%20SLI

The Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 5-5-5-15, should work just fine on the Asus MB.
Here is an expanded approved Qualified Venders List from Asus.
http://www.asus.com/999/download/products/1474/1474_10.pdf
You can also see a smaller QVL list in the manual on page 1-18 & 1-19.
The QVL insures total compatibility with the motherboard.

The NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT will run just fine on the Asus MB. Just make sure your power supply is no less than 500W. A 600W or 650W is preferred.
http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=600W+power+supply&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=1841721063482288764&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&resnum=1&ct=result#ps-tech-specs

Here is a write up of the Asus mother board: http://www.techspot.com/review/43-asus-p5n-e-sli/
Asus FAQ's of the P5N-E SLI. Good place to check questions about the board.
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?model=P5N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us

Good luck stukove2000!
Any more questions?

ASUS P5N-E SLI


Try RAM with a different speed. My 800 mhz RAM didn't work until I installed 533 mhz RAM and adjusted to 800 mhz in BIOS. Newly built PC, default must be set as 533 mhz because I reset the CMOS and still couldn't POST to BIOS. Only taking out all RAM gave me any sort of audible error code. Luckily I found some 533 RAM before I RMA'd the board.

Insight/Decision help on new motherboard purchase.


talk about what you want with a computer repair shop
logically if the mobo is out of date , then you should be looking at the latest mobo and duel or quad core cpu
next all the os ,files and folders are on the hard drive and that can be installed in any new pc and will start and run
you have to consider this , the amount of ram has a bearing on the speed or the pc as it is used by the pc as a storage space as it moves data around as it performs the various operations
new mobo have 2 ram slots for 4gig ram sticks but you say that you only have 1gig of ram--compare 1 against 8 and see how much easier the pc will run
AS is said , talk with pc professionals ( not retailers ) and get the best advice before you flash the cash

Asus P5N-E SLI Mobo will not boot or post.


Hi bart, please re-check you're memory. See page 1-17 in you're user manual. (Read everything)!
You're Asus board can not use 184-pin DDR DIMM's.
Also check the QVL list for supported memory page's 1-18 & 1-19.
I did not see Corsair on either page.
You're board can only use 240-pin DDR2 memory. Please read the "Notes" at the top of page 1-18.
If everything (Regarding memory) is within the Asus specifications than clear the cmos/bios & re-boot again. If you're system still does not boot than remove one DIMM & try again.
Asus warrants their boards for three years. Call Asus tech at
1-812-282-2787 EST, IL 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The call is on you but the service is free. It's worth every dime.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
Would you be kind enough to let me know what Asus suggested? (If it comes to that).

Mike
