Hey guys, I am a bit of a noob when it comes to computer hardware and was wondering what you guys would recommend for me. I'm on a UK budget of ideally around £600 maybe more if I can get some money from birthdays and soo on. Im aiming for a system that will play source based games flawlessly and hopefully upcoming games like UT07. And i might be running vista on in it...
I have been browsing the old overclockers.co.uk and with a bit of friends guidance, I have been opting for:
Intel Core 2 DUO LGA775 E6300 1.86GHz Retail / Gigabyte 965P DS3 / 1GB GeIL PC2-6400C4 Dual Channel Kit - Bundle £260
Hyundai ImageQuest N91W 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black £146
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB ST3320620AS SATA-II 16MB Cache £60
Samsung SH-183LBEBN 18x18 DVD±RW Dual Layer Serial ATA Lightscribe ReWriter (Black) £20
Antec Nine Hundred Ultimate Gaming Case £60
Hiper HPU-4M580 Type R 580W ATX2.2 PSU - Black £52
BFG GeForce 7600 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail BFG GeForce 7600 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail £82
Plus postage that costs around £700
Any general guidance on changes which I should make would be appreciated. Ideally I do not want it to cost any more. I hope to get this by late june, latest late july as I wanna take it to i31.
