I originally mistakenly posted this in the Tech Support section, sorry! A friend pointed me to this site when I asked for advice for a new build that would not cost the earth and give me 'bang for my buck' (excuse the expression). Based on the guide @ http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/buy...-august-2010/2, I have come up with a spec list and was wondering if anyone had any advice / suggestions for getting the best out of it, or perhaps changing some components. Here is the list: CPU - Intel Pentium G6950 MOBO - Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H H55 GFX - GeForce GTX 460 1025MB DDR MEMORY - 4GB of Corsair 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit) CPU Cooler - Titan Fenrir - £29.78 CASE - Antec 300 - £44.63 Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Green Power 1.5TB 64MB Cache Hard Disk Drive SATAII 300MB/s <8.9ms 7200rpm - PSU - Corsair VX 550W ATX Power Supply (CMPSU-550VXUK) [CMPSU-550VXUK] - £55.99 I also have a number of dvd writers, old but working, using IDE connections. Is it really worth the extra money and getting a SATA one? Thanks for any advice you can give me!
