I suggest trying overclockers.co.uk as my friend just ordered parts off them. Their components seem to be reasonably priced.

I am put off e-buyer as I hear their returns system is poor

What i decided to choose:

Asus A8N-SLI/Premium nForce 4 SLI PCI-E +3GB/sec SATA +SATA/RAID 5 Skt939 +Firewire +Gigabit LAN +8ch. audio +USB2 Dual Ch. DDR (up to DDR400)

simply because ASUS are a make im well aware of and i have had troubles with .com.tw websites in the past eg. with my chip at the moment pcchips/ecs. Not too sure if this can overclock processors that well but a extra 200 mhz would be cool to make it a 4800+

CRUCIAL 1GB DDR PC3200 400MHz 184-PIN UNBUFF 128MX64 Memory Modules

Recommendation

Seagate ST3200822A Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 200GB Ultra ATA/100 7200rpm 8mb Cache

Recommendation

NEC ND3540A 16x16x DVD R/RW Dual Layer Internal IDE Black – OEM

Seemed decent enough

LiteOn DVD Rom 16x48x IDE Black Bulk - OEM Without Software

Only black DVD Rom which is decent in stock

Mitsumi OEM Black Internal Floppy Drive 1.44mb 3.5 Inch

Decent

Antec Neopower 480 Watt - Power Supply ATX V2.0 24pin UK

Seems decent and is 24 pin.. which has been pointed out to me. But is pretty expensive -_-

AMD Athlon 64 (ADA4400CDBOX) X2 4400+ socket 939 2.2Ghz 1Mb and 1Mb Cache

Interested in a future processor for overall performance

XFX GEFORCE 7800GTX 256MB DDR3 TV + DUAL DVI PCI-E **the most powerful chip on the market**

Seems powerful and XFX automatically overclock it. Although dont know why other people dont like it.

NZXT Nemesis Elite Case

I like the idea of the case although expensive.

Hopefully all these match up and would work all together. If they do not work please tell me before i purchase this. Thanks.

the reason no one likes xfx is because they sent out alot of defective boards so you have a good chance of a doa,thats why

Can the ASUS a8n-sli premium motherboard overclock the 4400+ to a 4800+ atleast...

And can someone tel me about this PSU.. is this worth the extra 15£ or so?

and this DFI MOTHERBOARD WHAT IS THE LATEST?? and for a noob like me is it easy to master? Cos this seems to be a pro pro motherboard...

DFI NF4-SLi and a Leadtek 7800GTX, XFX SUCKS! and if yuor building a hig performance system i advise you to go with sata150 hdd not ata100. if you want to OC i advise you go to with some nice OCZ ram..

Yes I highly do recomend staying away from Asus for AMD builds, I may have said it before. XFX have sent me broken cards before, I am really not a fan of them.

As for harddrives, SATA is the same price (or cheaper) but not nesscarly faster, since the harddrive is a bottleneck. Still a good idea, since it doesnt follow master / slave, which can mean better hard drive to hard drive transfers, and the cables are smaller.

And you can overclock with cheap ram (This would be 10X easier in a DFI board), but if your serious it would be worth it to get half decent ram.

Leadtek 7800GTX apart from being more reliable can you explain to me how its faster/better?
