Please help with suggestions and overview my build Tags: Build Cases Compatibility Systems Product Last response: June 11, 2008 2:47 AM in Systems Share lostjohnlocke June 11, 2008 2:13:28 AM Hi there. I'm considering building a pc for the first time. I am looking to spend about 1-1,200 or a little more and I need everything, including the case. If you see I am over my budget in the below things, I can go a little over. Here is what I would like included with the build: CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115018 Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128086 GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130318 RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145590 PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004 Optical http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129018 Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146047 Hard drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136218 How does this look? Is it all compatible? Thank you for any help! More about : suggestions overview build shadowduck June 11, 2008 2:34:26 AM Buy a retail boxed CPU not that OEM one you picked. It comes with no heatsink or fan and only a 1 year warranty. Boxed CPUs come with a heatsink and 3 year warranty. Good choices mostly. PSU- Top-notch choice there. Motherboard is fine, you can get the DS3L instead if you don't need RAID and save money. Better idea would be to move to the new P45 chipset. Will only cost you $30 more: [urlhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...[/url] RAM: Get this G.Skill kit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231087 OR deal of the day: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227139 4-4-4-15 RAM 2GB for $28 lostjohnlocke June 11, 2008 2:43:18 AM Hey, thanks for the help Shadowduck!
