Hi,
I am looking for a new pc and i think for my needs the best way to go is i5.
What i have come up with:
20j4qv4.jpg

Along with that will be my Thermaltake TR2 550W,Samsung DVD Drive and 250gb HDD.
Working with that sort of budget of £450 so feel free to reccommend me other parts.
EDIT:The reason for no cpu cooler is because i am going watercooling if i can afford it if not i will get the Coolermaster TX3 or other..

gainward cards are very quiet from my experience, my last four cards have been gainward, 4850 golden sample is also available from gainward, never hear the fan, my hard drives makes more noise

I picked up the sapphire 4890 today, and each 4890 on the website has a new improved cooler. What pic it says on each 4890 its different except the sapphire vaporx and the asus one. The normal sapphire and powercolour has a new cooler on it. They are silent btw, have mine overclocked to 900core and 1000 memory. Get the 4890

Yes mate should be, does your 550w Psu have 2 x6 pins? if not the box supplies 1 molex > 6 pin pci e x2 so your all fine :) and i would get the sapphire one at 149.99 :)

Yes it does have 2 6pins and i may actually save a little more and get a 5850 as there isnt a big price difference between the two.

yeah you could do :) but there is very little difference. Here is a pic of the normal sapphire 4890, though the pics on the net are different, same with the powercolour :p
