Hello guys can you please tell me what you think of my system its a budget system I know but please rate it 1-10

i5 2300 @ 3.1 GHz
MSI P67 Mobo with 1 sec overclocking (actually no use cos of non K)
XFX Radeon 5850 1GB DDR 5 256 BIT OC to 780 MHz and 1150 MHz
WD caviar 1 TB 7200 RPM hardisk
4 GB Kingston Hyper X ram
Coolermaster V8 cooling
Aerocool VX-E Pro limited edition case with 6 fans
Aerocool touch 2000 controller
Aerocool Horsepower 750 Watt powersupply
Liteon DVD Writer

I think this is quite a system seing that I only spent 600 pounds on it actually R7000 as im an SA man :bounce:

It's not bad for a budget build.

PSU is overkill. A good 550 - 600 watt PSU would be more than adequate. I estimate total PSU load at around 300 watts.

CPU cooler is overkill. For a non-OC'd system, the stock cooler would be more than adequate.

Non-OC'd system does not need 6 case fans and a fan controller.

As a budget system, I'd rate it as a 5 or 6.

As a system with expansion potential, I'd rate it about an 8.

Keep in mind that I am from the U. S. and I am unfamilar with SA prices.

I think the PSU comes with the case. CPU is overkill, I just assumed he already had this system.
