XILENCE REDWING 600W
BENQ G2400W 24# WIDE TFT TCO-03 SV
2x HITACHI DESKSTAR P7K500 500GB 7200
NOCTUA NF-P12-1300 SILENT CASE FAN
ANTEC NINE HUNDRED ULTIMATE GAMER
NOCTUA NH-U12P CPU-Fan 120MM
INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q9450 2.6GHZ

OPTIARC DVD±R/RW DOUBLE LAYER 20X

ASUS P5E X38 SOCKET 775 ATX

I wonder if the Powersupply is good and it will will be enough, and if the CPU cooler will fit on the MoBo, and if the RAM good?

The price is around 3000$(its with other things to that isn't in the list) in sweden..
Its kinda expensive and i hope its good.. ;)

Can you actually buy the HD 4870 now?

I doubt that 600W will be enough for two of those. Also, I've never heard of Xilence. Can you get a PC Power & Cooling or Corsair in Sweden?

The CPU cooler you picked is fantastic. Anandtech has a good review.

Some DDR2-1066 would be better for overclocking.

Is that Optiarc IDE by any chance? Try to avoid IDE.




Good question about the Noctua cooler and p5e. Here's an answer:

Pour info, je vais prendre le dernier noctua NH-U12P sur une Asus P5E, et j'ai bien fait de contacter le support Noctua, puisque d'origine il n'est pas compatible avec ma cm, cela dit, chez Noctua ils sont tres pro, réponse hyper rapide, et au final, je commande le Noctua, j'envoie une copie de ma facture, ils m'enverront des plaques de fixation prévue pour la P5E.


Sachant qu'a partir de mars 08, ces plaques de fixation seront incluses dans le bunddle.


That is, the guy got that combo, it didn't work, called Noctua support, got some parts that solved the problem. Apparently these parts should be included in the package since March 2008.

Why would you buy that ram?
Get some 800mhz CL4 (ideal) or 1066 CL5

I also have to question your PSU... Spending 3k, get a good PSU like
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad (Black) EPS12V 750W Power Supply

^Agreed on PSU.

@OP:
If you are planing on getting RAM natively higher than DDR2 800 be aware that there will be compatibility issues. Many users reports and my personal testing has shown that there is a very good chance you will run in to issues with RAM higher than DDR2 800, such as DDR2 1066. I recommend you get quality DDR2 800 RAM and run them at 1:1 ratio or overclock the RAM. This issue dose not apply to DDR2 800 RAM that has been overclocked. Do makesure that the 1066 RAM you buy will be compatible.

Okey, thanks.. About the RAM, i can get 1066 but with the compatible thing, i read that the program didn't support the x38 chipset.. But i could be wrong. I gonna change the PSU to, because i thought it seemed to be weak.. >.<

Thanks for the help/tips :)

PSU is good. Do make sure the 1066 RAM is compatible. Also try and get 2*2GB.
