Hi all - From UK so any UK sales links would be appreciate, Egg.COM seems to be USA?
Firstly, wheres everyone stand on their opinions of dell? dell can give me a 2.4GHZ, 2gig ram, 7900 Geforce, 250GIG HD all up and running with vista for around £700.... Or shall i custom build ?
My requirements Multitasking(12 tables of poker, numerous applications(IE/MSN/AIM/MUSIC/Databases) & Some gaming(Flight sims, a few FPS light GhostRecon) & lastly 30" TFT SUPPORT This requires 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) Optimum Resolution (Dual Link capable DVI-D graphics card required)
I want a system capable of lasting along time, so ability to overclock is a HUGE PLUS - was wondering if you could help me get a system together?
So i think thats everything, all information on products downfalls/advantags appreciated aswell as links to cheaper sales sites or better products. All review links also appreciated, ill happily learn all i require to build this system.
I've built systems before, about 2years has passed so maybe things have changed a bit.... PCI-E, SATAHD's, Dual cores all new to me
Get a Gigabyte 965 motherboard instead of the Abit one in that bundle, stick with 2gb RAM, but swap the E6600 for either an E6400 or 4300 or similar.
You won't be pushing that many frames in anything at 2560x1600 with one card, let alone a GS card. It'll do fine for your Windows experience, but for gaming it'll struggle.
If you're serious about gaming then you need to pour more cash into the GPU, but if you're just doing it casually then don't bother and you'll just have to put up with somewhat less-than-perfect performance.
