    this for XP or Vista? Vista may run a little better with another 2x1GB if you can afford it.

    he stated he didnt want a big hdd and had picked out a 250gb maxtor, but i suggested this as its quieter/better and has pr, etc, otherwise i probably would have said to go for one of the wd6400AAKS as they are top notch speaking from experience

    They havent come down in price, they've gone up !

    IF I can get a 500GB one for £5 more, then i'll go for it. Have you got a link?

    Glad the cheques gone through. :) When will it arrive?

    Here's my final build. If someone could say to me - thats fine, all parts will work together (Pins, Bus Speeds, etc)

    Antec 900 on its way (Unknown)
    Intel E7300 2.66GHz on its way (tommorow)

    I'm not quite sure about the PSU. In the 2nd system in my specs which is close to what you are getting, under load I've gone over 400 watts using an AmWatt to read the voltage. You may want something a little beefier, especially if you are overclocking.

    Not that theres no heat sink.

    Which reminds me - I have to add a heat sink. Anyone see any off Ebuyer that would be good?

    Are all the parts fitting fine (Sockets, etc) - God, I worry so much.
     
  22. kyle2020 Guest

    I wouldnt go with ebuyer for the cooler. Go with scan and get an S1283, or go cheap and get an AC freezer Pro. If you want a pro, PM me ;)
