fucking prices of things in this country compared to the US:/
i'm probably gonna get all of this stuff from www.Ebuyer.com, and probably not till around march of next year, so that means buying vista at yet more cost, but a bridge to be crossed when arrived at.
anyway, thats roughly what i'm looking at, i want to OC the CPU to a good standard...i read the guide for OCing the 6300 to 3GHz, that would be nice..but not essential. i'm having such a tough decision about RAM, though. Gcards i dont mind as long as they run RTS games for the next 2 years on a big monitor. if only i had a PCI-E card now
I've heard nothing bu good things about that gigabyte board, same for the Asus one, and theyre worth getting just for the sexy heat pipes
so what do you guys think about the RAM? its got to be OCable...and i'm only going for 1GB...so should i get 1GB stick...two 512MB sticks? 5400, 6400? 533, 667, 800?
Go for the gigabyte MB and the 500W power (u dont need more)
Def go for the 7600GT if u want to play games.
1 gig is a must 2 gig pref.
How loong will it take before u get another 1gig if u go with 1gig?
If its some weeks then go for one 1Gig stick and make sure u can get the same brand/type next.
If its like 6month away go for 2*512
Go for pc6400/800MHz pref with good timings ea 44412 or somthing like that (will get u ~500+MHz fsb)
