Ok trying to build the best rig i can for the least amount of dosh... i guess we all are.. wot do you gys think of this setup


Intel Core 2 Quad-Core Q6600 G0 £170.95

1GB (2x512MB) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800), 2Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 4-4-4-12 £43.93

320 Gb Seagate £49.81

600W Zalman ZM600-HP Heatpipe Cooled Modular PSU +80% £72.49

... my thoughts are as follows..will the scanfx oem card be ok..i guess it just a stock card based on nvidia standard setting so i hope i can over clock it a bit..

... will the Zalman be ok to power the GTX and Quad, i dont plan for SLI but i do wanna OC the quad to atleast 3ghz

...is the memory ok..i no nothing about memory

... i will use the Tuniq tower for air cooling

More about build card think
  1. great cards i have 2 in my rig! never oc'd them tho!
  2. I'd get a name brand one... seriously... get Evga or BFG. Memory is NOT ok get another 1 gig at least. 2 gig is more prefer by vista. get 64 bit vista for gaming.
  3. I'd get a Corsair 620HX for £90. It's one of the best PSUs out there and worth the money.

    I'd feel better with the BFG 8800 GTX OC. It's also a bit faster. £32 more but worth it IMO for the peace of mind.

    RAM, 2x1GB would help a lot:
