Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and I'd just like some help on deciding on my new computer since my friend says that this is a very good and active site. And I can see that.
Now, can you please check for me if this computer build works and are there any better parts that I should replace it with? If you are suggesting another part different to the one I have now, please make sure that the price doesn't total over 2100. I'm keeping my budget around 2000 (1900 - 2100).
No, no overclocking. I mentioned playing with the voltage because on other forums some people had to reconfigure that in the BIOS in order to achieve the full potential of the RAM.
I'll might get one of the heat sinks when I upgrade, for now, I'll stick with the stock cooler. If needed cooling, I might go with the X1283 Xigmatek Red Scorpion CPU Cooler.
I'll upgrade to 8GB ram when needed, but atm, I think the OCZ 4gb will do me just fine. Anything to play GTA IV. =)
I really don't like Vista, I'm a big fan of XP.
Is there a better power supply that you can suggest to me that will last the time? I was thinking of going with the Thermaltake 750W ToughPower, is this a wise choice?

I'll get the blu-ray drive when I upgrade, at the moment its a bit over priced.
about your dvd drive... you have 2 writers, you can save an extra 20-30 bucks by getting standard dvd drive and only using one buerner. OEM versions aren't quite the same as retail versions as they dont come typically come with anything but the drive, a lot of times other items may be in the picture but with a disclaimer somewhere saying picture for retail version or something like that. just a warning to you since you have nero included on the post.
