after playing games on a laptop that runs on coal :heink:  i got the idea of assempling a PC myself.

i have not yet made a purchase so all parts a subject to change if im adviced to do so.

CPU: Phenom II X4 980 6 MB

GPU: Club 3D Radeon HD 6850

RAM: Corsair Dominator 2 x 4 GB

I have no knowledge about MB's, but want one without causing a bootleneck for the rest of the system.
(maybe also change RAM)
The PSU is something that scares me, :cry:  mostly because i've read a bad one can fry your system.

i live in Denmark so have no way of getting stuff home from
but if you just write (copy/paste?) the name of the part i can prolly find it :D 

Thanks again for helping out a greenie :bounce:  any answears is highly appreciated

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
