    I am currently building a high spec gaming PC... :D


    OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC3200 Dual Channel Gold GX XTC Series
    £139.95

    Viewsonic VX2025 20" Widescreen LCD Monitor
    £259.95


    Asus ATI Radeon EAX-X1900 XT 512MB GDDR3 AVIVO
    £259.95 (Is this the best available atm...will it last me a long time without having to buy another one?)


    Hiper Type R 580W Modular ATX2.2 PSU
    £54.95


    EDIT: Is this gfx card "Connect3D ATI Radeon X1800 XT 256MB" a better choice and how less powerfull is it compared to the other one?

    I allready have a decent mobo and HD and a decent enough cpu (2.3ghz i think).
    I have started off by buying the case. And i think to most of you i have made quite a bad desicion. I ordered it last night, the Cooleraster Wavemaster.
    I have heard that it has bad (or very bad) cooling, and without water cooling it is like an oven inside :eek:
    But the problem is that i dont want water cooling...
    So what would be a decent solution to my problem?

    I also heard that Yewen (i think) made a hole in the bottom of his case and installed a 120mm fan there and this made the case quite abit cooler, is this a good way and if so how did you do it? :)

    Please give some suggestions of how i could keep this case at a nice safe temperature running at this spec, as i dont get much money often and cant afford to get another case.
    Oh also for this price could i get a better spec?

    Thanks.
