Yeah i wanted to have 1600 at least, but with the other stuff on these site builds, it started to get rediculous priced when it came to the ram. Original firs build i went straight to RAM going 8GB 1600 (2x 4GB) but got told not to bother... i thought ram was a good thing... but as the stuff started to level out, to save money dropped to lower ram

tips on where to look? got a site called "advancetec" that i been told bout but looking at it im not very impressed

SCAN. Best site for components ever.. AND you can insure the parts so... if you built it and broke it while doing it .. then your covered.

SLI 570 will be fine on a 750Watt.

GEZUS! now the bloody agony begins... case, easy enough to find... go to the GTX 570 and get so many varients.

that insurance part does sound useful and might make me feel more at ease.

ok ill have a look at 750 stuff, and if i still fancy splashing out if i have the money i might just go for it. should i sort out the parts before even asking bout OCing or will i find a dummies guild to OC on the site?

the insurance is called scan sure and it will cost maybe £30ish but its that extra piece of mind for you.

thanks for that.. i was looking at them all trying to work out which way to go. the psu is not available at present. but the basket is well under the price of going through those companys...

One thing... the bios. i notice on vids on like youtube that they use somehtinghat isnt.. well blue. is that something extra or does it come with some boards?

scan is a very good place to get PC parts from I always use em but they can take a while to get in parts once sold out.

where would be the best place to get windows 7? And what is OEM? is it better to go with that then retail? AND when it says single, does that mean can only use it once?

single means only for 1 PC and OEM is just the disc on its own without leaflets and box. go for oem to save a bit of £££

well you can install it on another PC but the code would not activate windows.
like if you upgrade your PC you would need to contact Microsoft to reactivate.

oh i see. but it should still be just like the retail version right? just keep the code safe and they'll reactivate it no problem?
