So its confirmed, i'm buying me a new PC by the end of the week from money from my 18th / work and selling my current one. Will post specs further down for your opinion, but first, I need advice on a monitor.
Ok so I currently have a 22" CRT iiyama Vision Master Pro 513.
But I need a flat panel, this thing is simply too big to take to Uni with me.
I dont want to size down too much though, so i'm looking at 20" and i'd settle for a 19". Naturally i want to keep the price down too, and good looks is a good bonus.
So i'm currently looking at the Belinea 20.1" widescreen (note: in PDF format)
. this is going for £310 inc.vat. (about $520 US). Any other recomendations? preferebly something between the £200- £300 mark. If anyone can give good reason to get one under £200, please gimme a shout because you'll be saving me a fortune! :P
Ok, so the system I plan to get:
AM2 X2 5000+
Leadtek GeForce 7900 GTX Extreme 512MB GDDR3 (with Core running at 675MHz, and Memory running at 1660MHz)
Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 (800MHz) (2x 1GB in dual channel)
Asus M2N32-SLi-DLX nForce 590 SLi
Primary: Western Digital Raptor 74GB WD740ADFD 10,000RPM SATA 16MB
Secondary: Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB 3200KS SATA-II 16MB Cache
Case: Thermaltake Kandalf (still undecided as to black or silver) (see picture)
PSU: Thermaltake PurePower Power Station 520W Modular ATX2.0
And a DVD/RW Drive and a standard DVD Drive.
Oh, and i'll be getting me the Logitech G15 gamers keyboard, and keeping my current Logitech MX1000 laser mouse.
Any last advice/recomendations before I order greatly appreciated! I'll post pictures when I get it up and running
