  1. Hi there, welcome to the forums.
    First things first, please fill out this form: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    Next, could you link us to the specific products you are thinking about? A link is important, as it gives information about the part, and price and such.

  2. Oh, sorry, wasn't aware of that :) well here it is:

    Approximate Purchase Date: somwehere between 5-14 days

    Budget Range: Maximum 1380$/ 1000€

    System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, educational purposes, surfing the internet, watching movies.

    Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

    Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Well I'm buying the parts in germany, if anyone interested the website is http://www.kmelektronik.de/shop/index.php?id=32&page=4 (11:nth from the top, configured as shown above) buying the card separetely: http://www.kmelektronik.de/shop/index.php?show=product_info&GID=1535&MID=14&ArtNr=31390

    Country of Origin: Germany.... more specificaly Bremen

    I'm buying it as a set, but i can change the parts, which makes it hard to link it...
  3. Ahh, I see.

    Well, here's the thing. As most sites like that do, they are overcharging you for underpowered parts. It's not a good deal, and you could make a MUCH better system if you built yourself. Would you be willing to look at doing that?

    Also, why Nvidia preference? It's fine, just curious. Right now AMD has an upper hand in the gaming sector, due to better bang-for-buck.

    If you could answer those questions I think we can get started :)
    Here's what I'm thinking
    -2500k CPU
    Gigabyte Z68 mobo
    -2 GTX 570's. Yes, 2!
    -nice case
    -850w PSU

  4. Well, when you put it like that, it is pretty hard to say no, haha. So yes, let's build a new system from scratch xD.

    The only condition is basicaly I have to be able to get it in Bremen, germany. (plus maximum of 1386$ / 1000€

    Thanks a lot might :D
