Hi fellow OcUK's my first spec thread :cool:

Could anyone make any suggestions for the following setup. We needed a MB,CPU, Memory and a PCI-E 3D card...

GX-025-BG BFG 3DFuzion GeForce 7600 GT 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-025-BG) 1
£74.99 £74.99
MB-101-AS Asus A8N-SLi SE nForce4 SLi (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-101-AS) 1
£54.99 £54.99
CP-117-AM AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice (Socket 939) - Retail (ADA3000BPBOX) (CP-117-AM) 1
£41.99 £41.99

Around £280 with VAT, idealy we wanted something under £300 but if its highly reccomended we can stretch slightly higher, so please post your thoughts/suggestions..

Any reason why you aren't going am2? future compatibility.
If you aren't bothered by that, see if you can stretch around 30 pounds more for the OCuK 7900GS

That looks pretty decent, but if I were you, I'd look for 2nd hand bargains on MM or somewhere like that. I'm sure there are a lot of ppl with S939 kit that they would like to offload. If i was buying brand new all the way, i'd go for AM2

EG:

CP-162-AM AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.80GHz (Socket AM2) - Retail (CP-162-AM)
£44.99 £44.99
MB-147-AS Asus M2N-E (Socket AM2) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (MB-147-AS)
£57.99 £57.99
MY-059-CS Corsair 1GB DDR2 XMS2-5400C4 TwinX (2x512MB) (MY-059-CS)
£69.99 £69.99
GX-025-BG BFG 3DFuzion GeForce 7600 GT 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-025-BG)
£74.99 £74.99
Subtotal £247.96
VAT £43.40
Total £291.36

Obviously there is a small premium on AM2, but you'll have a chance of upgrading, if you decide to do so.
