Hey everyone, I'm new here, so please forgive me for being a bit of a newbie. I am currently in search of a new system since my current P4 system is becoming quite aged. Having played alot of pesky graphically undemanding MMOs for quite a long time, the recent release of CnC 3: Kanes Wrath is currently murdering my computer. A budget is being negotiated with my parents, however I suspect it will be around £600 maximum. From my own research, this is what I have come up with: Asus P5N-E SLI 650i Socket 775 ATX Motherboard (1033) I think this is a bit old now, but provides alot of bang for buck. Although it has a few constraining features (memory, slow second PCI-E), I am not going to be buying a second GPU or top-of-the-range memory! Intel Core 1 Quad Q6600 Energy Efficient 95W Socket 775 (2.4 GHz) G0 Stepping L2 8MB Cache OEM I have heard that this particular CPU is nice to overclock and tinker around with. I'd like a decent processor so I can compile software more quickly and it obviously helps with the gaming! 4GB Corsair DDR2 6400 This is on the reccomendation of a friend. Since the motherboard won't support faster RAM, this seems a bit of a bargain! 768MB XFX 8800GTX Extreme PCI-E(16x) 1900MHz GDDR3, GPU 600MHz A decent graphics card. Arctic Cooling AC-FRZ-7P Freezer 7 Pro Socket 775 To help with the overclocking. Coolermaster RealPower 700W Modular PSU Power supply reccomended by a friend. Estimated Cost: £571.08 I am keeping my current peripherals and hard drives to save money. What does everyone think?
