  1. Opps, forgot. I also need RAM, but I don't know what I'm looking for. Also any recommendations on this are appriciated. :ange:
  2. everything looks ok, and as for a psu i would recommend a zalman or corsair. zalman is alittle more expensive but generates less noise.
  3. Thanks for the info, I'll take a look at both and see which prices fit my budget. Any idea on how much wattage would be okay. I was thinking around 750watt.
  4. On a 4850 and the rest of your gear, a 750w is top end, you could get a 600w range if it saved a few pounds.
    For RAM I would get a 4GB kit (2x2GB) 800mhz stuff. Link your vendor and we can look at their choices.
  5. I'm buying most of my gear from, and some from I though the following amount of memory would be suitable. What do you think?

    I've also decide to purchase vista 64bit along with this.
  6. OCZ Technology 2x2GB would be just as nice and it saves you 6 pounds

    Good choice on Vista 64
  7. what about win7? isnt it worth waiting for?
  8. Cheers for the link alcattle. :)

    When is win7 being realeased? is there a price list out yet?
  9. I wouldn't wait for Win 7. You might be able to buy it in December, but do you really want to use a Microsoft operating system before SP1 is out? Win 98, XP, Vista - they were all a lot better after SP1.

    I'd stick with Vista Home Premium 64-bit until then.
