New PC building Specifications

Post by georgethomas » Mon Jun 09, 2008 1:41 am

Hi,

Thankyou to all who helped me out in finding the right components for my first PC building experience, however most of the help has come from Dan ( DMB2000uk).

I am very grateful to him, for helping me out.

These are the latest stuff what I have now

1) Asus Striker II extreme SLi 790i - mobo
2) Q6600 - CPU
3) Patriot DDR3 PC3- 12800 1600 MHz 1gb X 2
4) EVGA nVidia Geforce 9800 GX2 9800GX2 1GB 512Bit DDR3 PCI-E N
5) Noctua NH-U12F - HEAT sink and Fan
6) Antec Nine Hundred Case
7) Coolmaster 1000 watts SLi ready PSu

Do I need anything else guys ????


Cheers

what about an OS? Do you already have a Hard drive and DVD-RW?

I'd get a SATA DVD-Multi drive, they're dirt cheap and the thinner cables will be much easier to handle in your case, keep it cleaner too.

yeah i would suggest an an SATA HD and DVD drive. its just makes things so much easier- and cleaner. It looks like you have some nice hardware. May as well do it all right the first time.

I know about the SATA one, but I would like to add Blu Ray burner - the budget has blown out of Proposition. After, it has been assembled - I wud like to buy the blu ray.

How do u guys rate this PC when its done?

it looks really nice to me. I personally would have saved some money and went with DDR2 RAM and spent more on a faster Core2Duo over a quad.
