My budget is posted at the top in bold..:\:? anyway its 1500 US dollars

I've looked at that ram alot but no one seems to reply when I ask if that is a good kit to buy:\

I'm gonna get the Optical drive you recommended

And that monitor looks good I'll have to think about the monitor.



Does anyone have anything to add, suggest, etc.???? please?

This monitor's quite a bit cheaper and has good reviews. Get the wavemaster too that's a sick looking case. Everything else you listed looks good too.

# COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black---$45
----------------
CPU=Donno where to buy and if I should just get the 170 Opteron...

Any more help? Please

By the way thanks for the reply!!!
--------------------------------------------

This is a PM I got from a guy on a different forum(need to change format to look right in this forum)
================================
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
If you get the DFI LanParty NF4 UT Ultra-D, you cannot skimp on anything. This board with the right parts can be super stable, or turn out to be a disaster.

DFI LanParty NF4 UT Ultra-D

Great board and i will be getting one next month, too.


The Centurion 532 has a lot of potential for cooling.

Nexus 120mm Real Silent 40CFM Fan

This thing is really quiet, you can put that over the 4-in-3 module.

Get one Panaflo M1A for the exhaust and one for the lower intake. Mobes a LOT of air and reasonable noise level and you can lower it. You need to also purchase the fan tail for $1.50 (it's on that same page).

Thermalright XP-90

Panaflo M1A. Also needs a fan tail. You can get two and replace the case's CPU duct with this fan.

===============

Ok can anyone tell me what he's talking about? As in can you convert his messege and tell me what he is telling me to do...?

P.S. the 3-4 Module thing is this: Link to it

I'd think twice about getting a Seasonic S12 with an Ultra-D MoBo. Head over to dfi-street and you'll see what I mean.
