Truth be told, building a PC from the ground up is not the easiest thing to do in the world to do. There are a lot of parts and models to think about! It’s bad enough that many, many brands simply add to the confusion.
Once you realize this, the headaches of building a PC from scratch may overwhelm you. Donâ€™t give up yet! There’s a simple solution to the problem: The XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit, a powerful barebones PC that has a ton of upgrade potential!
Austere Beginnings with Massive Potential
Letâ€™s start on the surface: The XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit comes with the Ultra E-Torque ATX Mid-Tower Case. A great PC case by any standard, it’s both stylish and functional. The smooth, jet-black surface’s simple lines are particularly clean to look at. The left and right sides are made with clear glass, which looks exceptionally stunning when completed. The rest of the casing features 1 mm-thick high grade steel, which protects the PCâ€™s components. It has four tool-free 5.25-inch drive bays, one external 3.5-inch bay and five internal 3.5-inch bays, as well.
Looking at this kit’s parts, youâ€™ll realize this barebone kit is designed to create a PC powerhouse! Its nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 motherboard is extremely capable and works like a charm when paired with the Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz processor. Without a motherboard as powerful as this, the Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and its 6MB cache and 1333 MHz front side bus wouldn’t be able to reach its full potential. As great as this processor is, some of the credit actually goes to the motherboard when it comes to multitasking. This is because the nForce 680i LT efficiently integrates the processor with the rest of your components: 2 gigabytes of DDR 2 800 MHz memory, to start with. In addition to this, the motherboard supports PCI-Express 2.0 graphics cards, comes with built-in LAN, sound, and USB ports–the expandability options are almost endless!
The XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit also comes with a robust Maxtor 300GB hard drive and a brutish PowerUp 800-watt power supply, complete with two 80mm fans. The hard drive is perfect for storing a lot of multimedia files (or other important documents). With a spindle speed of 7200 RPM it runs fast, and comes with 16MB of buffer memory. The power supply unit allows you the most demanding of peripherals, from the latest graphics cards to multiple optical drives–you wonâ€™t have to worry about it being underpowered!
The XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit will allow you to build a power PC that will chew through anything from games to massive graphics rendering jobs. With support for the newest components, peripherals and upgrades, tuning it to perfectly fit your needs is entirely possible. Don’t settle for a store-bought-and-built machine…create your own Dual-Core, Dual SLI Monster!
