Oh yeah, this is my first time trying to build a computer. I have read that the e7200 is easily overclockable and am into trying that, but as a newbie my building skills are quite limited. Please keep that in mind while making your suggestions.
didnt look the case up. Antec Earthwatts are decent PSUs so you are set on that.
So that setup should cost around 560-580 before rebates and without the case which is very close to the toms budget build.
I agree with johnYeah about the mobo. I just didnt see the prices. I thoufg the p45 was much more expensive. Anw, ive had good experience with both Asus and gygabyte on p45 chipsets so any of the two will suffice
Thats canadian dollars though, and prices are a bit different. I dont see how your build "is much better" anyway. it has the same gfx card, .2ghz faster processor and a lower tier PSU. for a few bucks less because its calculated using american prices. $900 cnd have a relative buying power in the computer market of $750us.
Just following up on all of this stuff now. Proximon: Yeah I have heard that orvr can turn Warhammer into a lag monster, but I read a great article the other night about how the e7200 can has similar architecture to the e8400 and can really be overclocked (and at a much cheaper price).
