Hi again,

Another client wants a new machine. £900 fixed budget.

Preference for intel and nvidia. He doesnt game but does multitask with a lot of high end software like PS and occasionally 3d studio max. Ive picked all the parts. I just want people to suggest any tweaks and point out any possible compatibility issues and so on.

Case: Antec 900 - £75
PSU: OCZ Stealth XStream 600W - £60
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P iX58 i336 7.1audio ATX - £180
CPU: Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz 8MB Cache - £207
RAM: OCZ 3x2GB DDR3 1600MHz Triple Channel - £100
GFX: Zontac GTS250 512MB DDR3 - £83
HD: Western Digital 500GB SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - £38
DVD: Sony AD-7240S 24x DVD +/- RW SATA - £17
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster SM2243NW 22" 1680x1050 - £120

If he is a non-gamer, you could get away with a 9600GSO or something along those lines. There is no need to pick up a GTS 250. I would look to pick up a WD Black hard drive, either the 640GB or 1TB. A faster HDD will be better for his needs.

Thanks. Ill tone down the GFX and up the HDD.

Just to be dead certain... These parts are all compatible?

Im not going to find nothing fits? (not that its happened before)

All your parts listed are compatible with each other. Everything should fit just fine together.
