    check my spec.

    CPU: AMD Opteron 170 (2.0Ghz)
    GFX:Connect3D ATI Radeon 1900XT-X
    RAM: Mushkin 2GB DDR XP4000 Extreme Performance
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB
    PSU: Hiper Type R 580W
    CASE: ThermalTake Saprano Case
    DVDRW: Liteon SHM-165P6S-02C 16x DVD±RW/RAM


    Already got
    Saitek Eclipse Gaming Keyboard
    Razer Diamondback Magma Mouse
    Iiyama Prolite 17" (10ms) LCD Monitor

    just need some cooling as im intending to clock the CPU and RAM (will most likely leave GFX as it is). have about £80 spare, recomendations on the spec and what cooling to go with...?

    Thanx In Advance

    Looks a good system, for youe cooling I would go for the ThermalRight SI-120 and a Vantec Stealth fan 120mm, that will set you around £40.

    I would change your DVD-RW to a NEC ND4551 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer LabelFlash ReWriter :)

    I'd get a Seasonic instead of the Hiper. the Hiper is good, but not all that quiet compared to the Seasonic. And the Seasonic is supposedly the most stable out there. :)

    Have a Seasonic myself! And yeps, it's nice and stable... so far so good. :) The spec you've specified will make a great overclocking machine. :) And gaming? Well... can't get any better. :D

    thanx for the advise. will see what clocks i get @ stock cooling and then decide on a after market cooler. still unsure on the PSU, went with the lite-on as it has a silver besil that will match the case

    Could also consider the TT Big Typhoon. Tis rather large though.
