More about first time build
  1. looks good but get a PCP&C 750w over the ModXstream.

    and get the IIyama prolite over the samsung monitor since It's cheaper and has the same specs.
  2. Ok well thats a bit outside my budget, so i think i'll go with the corsair 620W?

    The ocz psu will be ok , the 620 HX corsair would be fine too and is a great PSU
  4. My Recommendations:
    Go with the OCZ Platinum 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600 RAM. It has faster timings then the OCZ Gold.
    Go with the Western Digital 640GB Black hard drive over the Samsung
  5. the samsung F1 is faster than the wd black . Not much in it , but definitely faster

    and the newer 500 gig per platter samsungs are faster again
  6. I think i'll stick with the 700W OCZ one its got good reviews and is cheaper, so keeps me in budget
  7. OCZ has been getting better. just remember that the PCU is the 1 place you don't want to skimp. If it blows you can posibly fry the whole computer.
