I finally, with the help of others, put together the rig I will be buying in january. With shipping it comes to $840 Usd or £422 GBP (This doesnt include any rebates and is the price of components today, It my be cheaper by the time of purchase!) I am excited about this build and hear many great things about its components, I just cant wait!! So tell me what you think, and any revisions that are clear that I should revise if you can find them :laugh:. The ebuyer purchases are components I want from the uk, due to shipping costs and other factors, the newegg purchases are clearly cheaper in the US and will save me alot of money :nutkick:
So thanks goes to those who helped me with this build I'll put up a project log when i start getting components :toast:

:) I know. I just came back from Europe, Italy specifically, and everything is so damn expensive, its ridiculous, grats on the build though, lots like it will be lots of fun :). Im waiting on my e2200 as well, hopefully the 11x multiplier will be as amazing as i hope.

looks like a nicely balanced setup.

A 512MB version of the HD3850 would have been nicer, but the 256MB is still good!

Let us know how far you are able to push that E2200!

Dam I bit the bullet, Im getting this 3870! $10 more than the 512mb 3850 so I think it was a no brainer! :D Hopefully nobody mentions the 8800gt or i will be tempted but the budget is at its absolute limit which i am very happy with!

sapphire 512mb 3870
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102713

Is this the best 3870 for its price tag?


EDIT: I wonder how much i can overclock with stock cooling on the e2200, I will only have stock cooling for the moment.

is this cpu when overclocked or even stock going to bottleneck my gfx card?

If this is a budget build, spending the extra 40 dollars to get into the e4x00 range isn't worth it. The e2180 is a blast to fool with, so that e2200 will be even better! Nice build, and good luck with it!

Edit: Oh, and think about grabbing something other than the Ballistix. I would say G.Skill, but others will say Patriot or Super Talent or whatnot. The only beef I have with the Crucial is that they have a high voltage set from the get-go, so if you plan on overclocking you won't have as much thermal head room.

I was lookin to oc the e2200, what is e4500 overclockin like? Ill think about it
the e4500 is a great overclocker, definately worth it. also that 8800GT i linked only cost you is a better card than the 3870 radeon which isnt as good and just costs $19 less. i also gave you a coolermaster psu because the corsairs were kinda high and all had to use mir to get in the $70 ranges. the OCZ ram only cost $22 after mir for 2x1gb set which is a steal.

also i saw you were buying through relatives then reshipping, the ncix site i linked you to will ship anywhere in the world so you get it direct and save reshipping.

Keakar, jesus! thanks for that which is awesome :D A whole rig right there.
One of my concerns is that i will get taxed when they send those components, thats why i was getting a relative to as they could rite like family dvds or boxers :D on the form.
what is that 8800gt like with hd? Ill be using a hd tv with this build. Is that 8800gt cooling ok? how comes the others have covers and it is bare?
where do i find shipping costs on site lol

Keakar, jesus! thanks for that which is awesome :D A whole rig right there.
One of my concerns is that i will get taxed when they send those components, thats why i was getting a relative to as they could rite like family dvds or boxers :D on the form.
what is that 8800gt like with hd? Ill be using a hd tv with this build. Is that 8800gt cooling ok? how comes the others have covers and it is bare?
where do i find shipping costs on site lol
its not bare it has a cooler but it is thinner to fit better and not take up an extra pci slot like others do so you can do sli easier. the cooler link it has next to it is one that works great with the 8800gt and works fanless so no noise at all = quieter computer. most people who get any video card will replace the stock cooler because they are noisey and dont work as good as an inexpensive aftermarket cooler will.

the relatives mailing it could work but if customs catches it (good chance they will if the size and weight dont match the package description) plus they scan for metal (a motherbord or video card could be a bomb if you think about it) and they also do random exrays on packages too. if found they WILL seize it as in you lose it plus they may fine you for customs and tax fraud. in my opinion its not worth it to save a few dollars but its up to you.
