PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor,speakers, case, operating system windows 7, GeForce 8800 GTS 512 graphics card, power supply coolmaster 450W product no.RS-450-ACLY re-use if possible?

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: http://www.ebuyer.com/ But open to suggestions in the UK

PARTS PREFERENCES: none

OVER CLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The main components required are: motherboard, processor and fan, memory and a large hard drive 1tb? Possible new power supply?

  3. Is this processor good for over clocking, do I need to upgrade the fan, if so can you recommend one?
  4. Typically, AMD CPUs are good overclockers. A good HSF is the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus. I didn't see it on ebuyer though...
