Right im gonna be building a new pc in january...........yep im waiting till vista comes out, thats if it comes out in january. Ill be using the following parts from my current pc: x1900xtx sound blaster audigy 2zs akasa eclipse 62 power supply 600w floppy drive dvd drive My budget is a very strict £1100 and this is what ive come up with: CP-128-IN Intel Core 2 DUO E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) Retail £214.95 MB-020-DF DFI Infinity 975X (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard £129.95 MY-010-GS G.Skill 2GB DDR2 HZ PC2-8000 (2x1GB) CAS4 Dual Channel £302.95 HD-087-WD Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740ADFD 10,000RPM SATA 16MB Cache - £103.95 £103.95 HD-003-HI Hitachi Deskstar 7K500 NCQ 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM £175.50 £175.50 Subtotal £927.30 Shipping (City Link Parcel Next Day (Delivered Mon-Fri) £8.95 VAT £163.85 Total £1,100.10 This rig will be used for gaming and i would want it to last as long as possible thats why ive got the 500gb hard drive as ive got 160Gb worth of games to that i currently play on. Ive never overclocked before but i would like to learn thats why ive chosen some nice memory. I wont overclock unless i need to when my rig seems a little slow in games, which i wouldnt need to worry about for a few years. Anyway what you think?
