advice needed...

Thread Starter 
as i decided to buy e6300 rather than x2 4200+ with the help of some good and responsive guys on this forum, if forgot to give rep points but sure i am going to give it now =)
thanks alot and now i have some more questions and decisions to take..

i bought a new computer case 3 fans are installed in it, i am about to asking if they are okay or i have to tweak something there is one 90mm fan installed at the side panel and 2 90mm fans installed aat the back.. are they okay?? do they ventilate the case well and will maintain the case temperatures??

and secondly i choosed a mobo which was supporting dual channel ram thing (as i am asking, i dont know about it) i asked the price of DDR2 1gb 667 ram but computer shopkeeper reccomend me to buy two modules of DDR2 512mb 667
, he told me that it would be better than 1 module as it will be then dualchannel ram.. please clarify what system is this..?!?!

please help me i am already so thankfull to all of you, i'll be =)

The fans in the case should serve well. The only thing i might add is an intake fan to the front of the case if it is possible. If not, then i wouldnt worry about it. The 3 should suffice.

Dual channel is better than single. The guy reccomended you 2x512 stick of ram so that your mobo can optimize the dual channel feature. It is NOT necessary, though performs a little better. If you plan to upgrade in the future to 2x1gb sticks to total 2gb or ram (which i highly reccomend) then just get 1x 1gb stick instead of 2x512 sticks.

thanks i wll go for 1gb stick, and it is impossible to add fan infront as there is no hole infront plastic sheet but there is enough room and place for fans in the cage (infront)

by the way rep + =)

Most of the cases I've seen and worked on has a spot in front to install an intake fan. It's usually in the lower section behind the front bezel. If you pop out the entire front bezel, you should see a section where you can install a fan. It should be pretty obvious once you pop it out. Good luck and tell us how it goes.

Get the WD hdd with 16mb cache, itl be faster.

As for the ram, do you have links to them with more specs. I wanna lean towards the corsair, though the specs such as ram timings will verify which is best.

WD is probably the best hdd company. Next in line would be seagate.

For the ram, i would go with which ever has the tightest timings, unless there is a huge price gap between the two. And have you considered newegg.com for purchasing some ram? It sounds like you are buying all the parts from a ratail store in your area. Perhaps post some prices of the hardware your planning to buy, and i bet we can find cheaper for you.
