The 2 things that stick out to me are, if you're just gaming, only buy 4 gigs of ram, not 8. Won't use the extra and its easy to add later if the needs of the system change.
Also, try to get a sata DVD drive and not IDE.
That PSU is a beast. Even with CF, you'll still have 150ws left over. The trend is for power consumption to go down. We've hit peak power I think and the focus of green everything is spilling into computers too.
You have a great gaming system there, enjoy.
Thanks for that mate.
Yup sure will stick to 4 gigs of ram.
As regards to the drive will update and change - any suggestions for decent ones or are they mostly the same?? i'm guessing that i need x24 speed right?
I'm pulling the trigger on the cpu today, it was the psu and hd yesterday and tomorrow will be mobo... ah it's great doing it day by day!!!
