Now, I know you guys are probably tiered of all the "will this work" requests, but I really need an expert opinion on this one. I've done some research and I think I've found a working configuration, but it'll be great if you could confirm that there are no major issues with this configuration. Anyway, here it is (made by mainly tweaking the I Stuff Make's one):



Asus P5W, i975X, LGA775, DDR2, 2xPCI Express, CrossFire, Dolby SB7.1, 2xLan1000, 802.11g, SerialATA, Raid 0,1,5, 2x1394, ATX


Video Card:

GF 8600GT 512MB 128bit DDR2 PCI Express, DVI, TV Out



Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33GHz, 4MB, 1333MHz FSB, s775)


Hard Disk:

320 Samsung, SerialATA, 7200, 16MB



2GB DDR-2 800MHZ


Will this work out of the box? Any major issues? Can I change something to add performance, while staying in this price range? Anyway, thanks in advance.

I've seen the 8600GT used in other configurations, and some info that it's "already supported" so I think I'll try it and see what happens. Anyway 10x for the help

I have installed in a similar config, kaly 10.5.2 + latest nvinject for 8600GT+ patch for sound, as it was for a friend I dont have the drivers with me now. The only pro we had was with dual monitor. It worked by using a digital to vga adaptor.


my friend is very happy so far.
