New Gaming System - Buying Soon - Help

Greetings,

After days of thinking and thanks to your help guys. I've ended up with this system. Unfortunately, I can't buy from newegg.com so I had to use amazon.com instead.

1. EVGA 8800 GTS 512 G92 nVidia card http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00114O9EC/ref=ord_cart_shr?%5Fencoding=UTF8&m=A9B09ZK9BZJQ6&v=glance

2. Corsair 620w HX PSU

5. ASUS P5K - OR - GIGABYTE P35 DS3L Motherboard

6. AURORA GIGABYTE Case

7. WD 500gb 7200rpm HD SATA

8. Samsung SATA DVD

9. 22" Flatron LG monitor

10. E6750 Processor (2.66 core 2 duo)


a. I just need help picking the best motherboard, as you can see I don't use SLI/Xfire.

b. I also want to know if I need to buy fans for that case. If yes, tell me which kind and what type that would fit?

c. Is my RAM good?


Note that I can only buy from amazon.com since I live abroad. Thank you :)

  1. What kind of processor are you looking at, or do you already have one?
  2. Ahh forgot to add the CPU. I'm getting a E6750 (or E6850) I dont need to decide on these since I can buy them here.
  3. Can someone tell me if I need to buy better fans and if my system is compatible?
  4. Why can't you buy from newegg? Some of the parts will cost less at buy.com, take the PSU for instance;

  5. I already explained I can't buy form newegg.com :( I don't have an American Credit card. I am very satisfied with amazon I just want to know if my system is good and whether I need to buy fans for my case?
  6. you will find better deals than neweggs at pricegrabber.com. I usually save about $80 at pricegrabber.com when building high end systems. Im also luck that I live 1 block away from newegg warehouse, I dont have to order
    online :)

    Talk about good news/bad news!
  8. Your orginal post said nothing about living abroad, but that's ok, I agree check pricegrabber. I've only done one build with a different gigabyte case, don't know about the fans, that is something you can do after you build. Good luck.
