Hi everyone,

I'm almost done making my list of parts for my first build. I know most of you buy from newegg but thats not an option for me as they don't ship to belgium. So the best option was novatech.co.uk as pound vs. euro is a bargain. the total cost is around 1800€. I think i selected great parts that have the ability to last me a couple of years. I also want to overclock it as my motherboard is just 2.66 Ghz. Let me just list all the parts here and let me know what you think. (if you think i need to upgrade something please note that i already over used my budget)



- Intel Core i7 920 "D0 Stepping" 2.66Ghz (Nehalem) (Socket LGA1366) - Retail
- Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard
- Samsung EcoGreen F2 SATAII 1.5TB 32Mb Cache Hard Drive <8.9ms - OEM
- HIS ATI Radeon 5770 1024MB GDDR5 TV-Out/Dual DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Graphics Card
- G.Skill NQ 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Triple Channel Kit
- LG BH08LS20 Blu-ray Rewriter DVD-/+RW DVD ROM Black SATA - OEM
- Novatech 800W ATX Power Supply for AMD and Intel Motherboards 20Pin + 4Pin
- Asus Xonar DS High Definition 7.1 Channel PCI Sound Card - Retail
- Zalman ZM-MFC3 Multi Fan Controller
- Coolermaster Mystique 631S-B Tower Case - Black
- Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50-1 CPU Cooler
- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit DVD - OEM
- Novatech PCIe Power Cable (to power my second video card)
- Plantronics GameCom 377 Gaming Headset


Any help would be great as my knowledge is pretty basic...

Thanks in advance...

The H50 cooler is pretty terrible and overpriced. Getting a quality air-cooling solution would be much better (and probably cheaper).

Why do you need a PCIe Power Cable? Are going to crossfire two HD 5770s?

800W is overkill, 600W would be more than enough for crossfiring two 5770s.

------------------

The same, you don't need a 800W PSU, with a good 500W to 600W is enough. The PSU that you list is a generic PSU.
