I'm sure you all love posts as wonderful as this but I would greatfull if anyone could just take a peek at the latest rig I have planned, and confirm that it is ok. I haven't been following the best and the worst of hardware for about 2 years so I'm a bit 'blind' at the minute. :rolleyes:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (Socket 939) - Retail £169.99

MY-079-CS Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2 £174.99

GX-050-CO Connect3D ATI Radeon X1950 XT-X SILENT Heatpipe 512MB GDDR4 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail £244.99

HD-087-WD Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740ADFD 10,000RPM SATA 16MB Cache - OEM £91.95

CD-020-AS Asus DRW-1608P3S 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Black) - Retail £24.50

CA-090-CM CoolerMaster Stacker 830 - Silver Trim (No PSU) £129.95

CA-008-TG Tagan TG530-U15 530W ATX2.01 Easycon SLi Compliant Modular Silent PSU £62.99

MO-049-HY Hyundai ImageQuest N91W 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black £135.99

MB-118-AS Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe nForce4 SLi X16 (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard £99.99

Subtotal £1,135.34
Shipping (City Link Parcel Next Day (Delivered Mon-Fri)) £24.95
VAT £203.06
Total £1,363.35

If you think there are any adjustments I should make then I have a budget of about £1400, bearing in mind that I'm going to use it to play upcoming games such as BF2142, Crysis, ET: Quake wars, Spore and UT:2007

Also I'm guessing that the cpu comes with a standard heatsink as it doesn't actually say, while AMD do usually state that it comes with one. :confused:

Much Appreciated,
Matt.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'll just check out another mobo and case then, aswell as the E6600.

Am I right in saying I would need DDR2 ram?

Thanks again :). However this has added about 60 quid, without a case!
I have a Coolermaster Praetorian at the minute, so I'll probably keep that and flog the other components.

Intel Core 2 DUO E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) - Retail £194.99

MB-061-GI Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard £91.99

MY-071-OC OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) PC2-6400 Dual Channel Special Ops XTC Series DDR2 £176.99

Really wasn't sure on the ram, got any recommendations for some reliable stuff, not really going to be overclocking the cpu.

Much Appreciated.
