Default New Build.

This probably isnt the smartest thing to do but i was going to buy a powersupply and case and then over the next few months slowly buy the parts. Im going to aim for this:

(The choices i made are made because there are no big onlines stores for Australia like newegg where i can get everything, my choices are limited)

CASE: COOLER MASTER Mystique RC-632S-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W
MOBO: Gigabyte P5K-SE
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz
RAM: OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 / 1066MHz / NVIDIA SLI-Ready Edition / Dual Channel
VCARD: MSI 512MB 8800GT PCI-E (The new 8800GTS doesnt interest me.)
HDD: Seagate SATA 160GB

I havent checked if there all compatible yet but i skimmed over it and it all seems to fit. So, remembering my options are limited, what do you think?

i would not get samsung ram, if ur not overclocking and just want simple ram, get corsair xms2 as they are fairly cheap in aus or even value select. if uve ever read magazines and they use samsung ram that is stupid. especially if they try to o/c it.

everything else seems to be good.

good site to make from- ITSdirect Buy Systems & Parts at Australias Only Service Based Online Computer Superstore!

A few places, 2 physical locations in Syndey are:

MSY - msy.com.au
CCPU - ccpu.com.au

They have pretty good prices...
And thanks for the crits, i should be able to find better RAM pretty easily now.

Okay i changed my RAM...

Also, you might not be happy with the p5k, try to see if you can find an ABIT ip35 or gigabyte p35 board. I didnt care for my p5k.

they're usually quite cheaper than the p5k
also see if you can find the Tuniq Tower 120
it will enable you to overclock quite a bit more

Default Re: New Build.

also there is 0-zero reason to buy ddr2 1066 if you plan to overclock, and you buy some decent ddr2 800. HZ sucks we all know that now lol lol lol .
jk actually mine do suck but meh live and learn. buy some good ram gskill, corsair, crucial, patriot...they will all serve you well.
