Since my socket 939 system with an X1800XT is starting(!) to get a little dated, I'm going to buy new components: motherboard, CPU, graphics and RAM. I've got a shopping list that comes to a little under £300 and just wanted to run it by some knowledgeable people to check if there's anything glaringly wrong with it, or any better value components I could be getting.
So, the list...
AMD Athlon X3 435
ATi HD5670 1GB
4GB Crucial 1333
Hopefully I'll be lucky enough to get a CPU with a stable 4th core, but if not it's a good CPU and very overclockable from what I've read. The memory performed brilliantly in tests here at Tom's, and the graphics card is the longest I can fit in my case (Arctic Cooling Silentium).
Oh, forgot to mention I'm willing to go up to about £350.
Also, if you're wondering about the graphics card size issue, it's because the PSU sits at the front bottom of my case, with a hard disk caddy suspended behind it, right in line with the PCIe slot that a graphics card would sit in. It was a bit of a squeeze to plug the power cord into my current card, so the ideal is something that's reasonably powerful at 1680x1050 but doesn't need a dedicated power supply.
