More about which

  2. Hi, If you went with an Air cooler you could save another 40E, Since you are not overclocking you are not going to be generating alot of extra heat, and the H60 is not the most silent cooler. The a50 Air cooler only costs 38E from ultramalta.

    I think the Second system looks better costs a little less and you can get it quicker!

    Have fun with it!

  3. One more thing... you could get the SILVERSTONE PSU for 80Euro saving even more cash. And the Silverstone is still a high quality PSU.

    Thanks for the suggestion about the cooler, I'll go with that.

    To be honest with you, I was going for that PSU cause of the colors. Lmao
  5. Also I wanted to add, do you think the first MOBO is better than the second one? Cause that what was confusing me so much.
  6. I think many more would have answered if they didn't have to click 12 links to figure out what was in them.
  7. 70 Euro one has only VGA connector, no VRM heatsinks. more expensive one has DVI connector and some heatsinks. I don't really think you need the model with the Heatsinks as you cannot overclock.
