Default New Rig - Thanks guys

Thanks to all the help on this forum I have decided to order this rig soon;

Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 1.86GHz - 114

Radeon 1950XT - 170

Antec 900 - 70

G.Skill 2GB DDR2 HZ PC2-6400 (2x1GB) - 160

Gigabyte 965P-DS3 Socket LGA775/Intel P965 Express/4xDDR2 800/PCI-E x16/SATA II RAID/ATX - 90

Seagate Barracuda 120GB 7200rpm Hard Disk Drive - 31

LiteOn 16x DL DVDRW/2MB Cache/Bare Drive Black/Internal 5.25"/EIDE Drive - 16

Antec TruePower Trio 650W/Three +12v Rails/Active PFC/120mm fan/ATX12v PSU - 70
or
Hiper 530W Black Type M PSU - 55

Still ensure which PSU to go for and also need to decide on a monitor. Probably go for a 150 viewsonic 17".

Thanks for the support, enjoy the rig

Should be a good rig, i wouldnt spend £150 on a 17" though, you could get a good 19" for that! a good 17" should cost around £120-130.

Ebuyer is a good site which i like(i assume your from the uk as you used the £ sign)


EDITED to say that Hiper PSU will be fine
