1st time build, need help(900-950$)


BUDGET RANGE: 900 - 950 $ (converted to $), my budget in euros is 600.

Browsing, multi tasking, msn, listening to music/watching movies. Using microsoft excel,powerpoint,word for school. Only game I play is CSS

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I don't need a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and speakers.

No clue here, I live in Europe, Netherlands to be specific. If there's a website that ships to Europe for a reasonable price and where I will end up cheaper/same than I'd like to see parts from that website.

This is the system that I got so far, it's a bit out of my budget in euros. So if it would be possible to cut on the RAM/Motherboard price and it will still work well then I'll take that.

Intel Core i5 750 (would like it to stay the same)
ASUS P7P55D PRO (if cheaper and works well, then change this)
OCZ Platinum Dual Channel Kit 1600 2x2 gb (if cheaper and works well, then change this)
Sapphire RADEON HD 4850
Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD502HJ (would likie it to stay the same)
Antec Three Hundred
Corsair VX550W
Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7240S
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe later, not now.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: If there's a website for cheaper parts to make up for the shipping then I will buy em from there, else the motherboard/ram or something else will have to be cheaper to fit more in my budget.

  1. Anyone?
  2. If you are not going to overclock, the stock cooler will be adequate. If you are going to OC, there are better coolers.
  3. Nah I guess so I won't. Is the rest looking good? Any website suggestions that ship to Europe?
  4. Aright, see if 1333mhz makes much difference in €, if doesn't leave these 1600. That cpu and mb is ok. Heatsink for cpu. If you do no plan to overclock it at least for now then dont buy any additional, that stock is enough, especially when you got turbo mode which bumps cpu freq up to 3.2ghz(on two cores maximum), graphics card. If 4770 is priced the same then pick 4770, the same performance, less heat and better oc. of course if you can afford then pick something like 4870 or 4890. That's all, and btw that samsung f3 is just great!
  5. Alright, thanks.

    So this:

    Intel Core i5 750
    OCZ Platinum 4GB DDR3-1600 CL7 Low Voltage
    Sapphire RADEON HD 4770
    Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD502HJ
    Antec Three Hundred
    Corsair VX550W
    Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7240S
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

    Final system I guess, any more suggestions?
  6. Oh yea, I might get a diff cpu heatsink. Any suggestions? There's not many for 1156... so which 1s are the best for a decent price?
