Im being forced to buy a new computer (dont ask long story) anyhow i was looking at
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Winchester 90nm (Socket 939) £193.82
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum (Socket 939) Motherboard £99.82
Corsair 512MB DDR XMS3200C2 Pro CAS2 x2 £89.30 (got 1 already)
ThermalRight XP-120 (Socket 754/939/478) Heatsink £35.19
YS-TECH FD1238 120mm Fan - 4 Pin £11.69
Sunbeam Transformer Gaming ATX Case - Blue £76.32
Antec NeoPower 480W ATX2.0 PSU £88.07
MSI NX6800GT-TD256 GeForce 6800 GT 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail £270.19
(I Know ive got everything else from other system)
this comes to £880ish including P&P but i cant afford that and theres noway i can squeeze it so i know i need to shave sum bits off the ends. So few questions.
1) How well does the 3200 90nm amd 64 overclock? I would still like it to run at 3500 speeds without any extra noise. Thats why i have picked the very big heatsink and fan.
2)Any other Graphics card will reduce my cost be quite away i would of thought but consindering i cant find any eVGA stuff anywhere here in UK im stuck with other ones. I dont mind dropping to 6600 speeds but not much slower tbh.
3)Is that psu good and will it fit in that case? Or is there a cheaper psu that will ve as quiet?
4) any other ideas?
EDIT: this is all from www.overclockers.co.uk
but any other sites that post to the UK are well welcome ( so no newegg
