Need Help with Build - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Okay an update,

I've chosen between two motherboards that are actually significantly better than my first chosen MOBO:
---Option 1 $80.44
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=662991



---Option 2
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=540785



Those seem to be all compatible with my set-up, if not please warn me!


Also since no one has really touched on it, I'm deciding on getting the Thermalfly F1-Lacsha for my CPU: http://www.thermalfly.com/cp/html/?6.html
It comes with a fan speed controller and looks pretty crazy in my opinion.


Now the RAM I have now chosen:
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
I figured why not go up a few dollars and make it worth my while.
Should work a treat.

I'm definitely getting the Intel Celeron Dual Core E3400 2.6GHz Socket 775.
No doubt in my mind now. That's all I really need and according to some benchmark testing, that CPU with the ThermalFly heatsink/fan heat disperser I can easily clock it up to almost 4GHz?! We'll see.

I'm a bit worried about my GPU choice:
MSI GeForce N210-MD1G 1GB
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=616985

Because I found this:
Point of View GeForce GT430 HDMI 2GB
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=823245

Should I fork out another $100 to upgrade to the 2GB GPU?

Thanks again everyone.

As for the Mobo, I would go with the more reputable brand. I would go with ASUS.

For the GPU, definitely get the 2gb. Your first choice isn't even GDDR3. The second one is and will be an improvement.
Hmmm...

Cool thanks for that opinion on the GPU. I will look into getting the 2GB instead.

Funny thing too my motherboard choice is an ASUS and I have already purchased it:
Asus P5G41C-M LX
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=540785

So now the most important things are:

CPU
Most preferably this;
http://www.aquilatech.co.nz/productD...roduct=1065755

GPU
Most preferably this;
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?e=823245

RAM
Most preferably this;
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-312-_-Product


And finally Sufficient cooling for the hardware when the PC is basically completed.

+REP again for helping
