There isn't really any need for the CD-rw as the DVD-rw burns cd's as well, but it doesn't cost alot more.

You should get a different PSU though. The Hiper Type R 580w is very good value in the UK (£15-20 more) and will supply a safer amount of amps for the GPU.

What are you doing with your system? Are you overclocking?

AMD is defiantly worth it for games. The Intel 650 is beaten by a Sempron 3000: http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/11/...05/page29.html

There is alot of this and that way for the X2's. I personally like them, as right now you can have BG programs, listen to music and have a server running on one core, and have the game un affected on the second, and when dual core games come out, everyone else will feel forced into upgrading. But, people are saying that when that happens fully, their D.C. CPU will be out of date. Its up to you though, I don't like saying "get this."

But the mobo and cpu you chose is £270.

This is the cheapest X2: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=94640

+ the previous mobo (cheapest decent mobo I could find, I miss the ASUS A8N Sli being on sale, glad I got it before they discontinued it.)

That comes to £290.

The 3700 (non X2) will fit better in that budget, and still beats the Intel at games.

I cant change the motherboard because i just looked and i cant cancel my order so im going to have to stick with the p4 i said.

Is the only thing thats wrong with the list is the PSU?

btw, if i have 2 procesors in my device manager does that mean i have a duel core processor?

this is the PSU i was lookin at...

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=99137

One more question, does a pentium duel core processor fir in any mobo?

(checks to give you a more detailed answer)

A titre d'exemple certains recommandent pas moins de 25A pour une X850XT.
That guy says 25amps on the 12v is recomended.

http://www.sapphiretech.com/en/forum...ead.php?t=1005 again, 25amps.
