Saint, check your links; they're all broken.

idoop, it seems to me that all you want is a cpu, mobo, psu, ram, and os; is that correct?
Could you also tell us which graphics card you currently have and want to use?

oke my graphics will be updated later on but at the moment i have a evga nvidia geforce 9600gt standard........

so yes i need a cpu, mobo, psu, ram, cpu cooler(forgot to mention) and.... a case(srry forgot to tell about that)

and saint19 thy for ur post ill look at it :) 

os is a operating system right? if it is that no im getting win 7 from a friend :) 
December 20, 2009 3:14:02 PM

oh any anyone have an idea for some cheaper ram im almost over my buget and want to spend a little less then this(stuff costs more in holland)
December 20, 2009 3:37:07 PM

come to think about it anyone have some ideas for other psu, ram and maybe some other stuff to lower the price a bit..
December 20, 2009 5:36:11 PM

Yes, the OS is the operating system.

Here's some cheaper ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


You don't need a 1000 Watt psu for your system;
Here's a cheaper psu that offers 3-way SLI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For a little less, you can get a psu that only offers 2-way SLI/CF
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Here's a good cpu cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


If you want 3-way SLI capability, get this mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you'll be fine with 2-way SLI/CF, get this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For the case, its really up to you; if you don't care what it looks like, you could go with something like this

oke ive made a build.. and would like to know what you think of it.

mobo-

cpu cooler-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

case-
dont know jet but doesnt matter

any comments?
enough power for 3 way...(dont know if ill use it, so maybe i should buy another mobo but i like evga :p )

and is this good ram...
and im looking for a case with good airflow and maybe some fans with it.
December 20, 2009 8:10:11 PM

The psu link you posted is the same as your ram.
Otherwise, it looks good; I recommended some of the other parts on the premises that you'd prefer cheaper rather than more expensive (particularly on the mobo) though Evga is a good manufacturer. The case I posted earlier has 3 120 mm case fans + a 200 mm case fan; about as good as they come for that price.

As for the ram, you can get 50% more ram, and run it in triple channel (vs. dual) for the same price. Corsair ram is good, but G. Skill is just as good, if not better, and it doesn't have a price premium for the brand like Corsair has.
That being said, I still recommend the ram I posted earlier.

Good luck with your build, and if you have any more questions, feel free to ask; that's what we're here for.
