Okay thanks for the help

So i'm thinking...
CPU: E6400 £120
Mobo5B Deluxe
RAM:G.SKILL F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ
Graphics: Inno3D GeForce 7600 GST
PSU:OCZ gameXstream 600W

I have chosen the 7600GST so that I can save up and get a DX10 card, eventually.
I have £80 to spend on PSU. Is the gameXstream 600W better than the 520W Corsair, should I bother?

suggestions please...

The Corsair is better but not by much, the Corsair also has the advantage of having 2 rails over the 4 the GXS has

650W Etasis ET650 £105.74 Inc VAT
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=473321

Better than both the Corsair and GXS

You might want to look into the DS3

Gigabyte GA 965P-DS3 £103.39 inc VAT
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MB-061-GI

And these if they're cheaper than the G.Skill HZ

Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator £229.11 inc VAT

Well i don't know if i can afford the dominators, we'll see. Is ETASIS a quality brand or what?
post #28 of 31
I recommended the Dominator's because the G.Skill HZ is more expensive than it on overclockers

Etasis is a quality brand, they make the Zeus series for Silverstone and have been making server PSU's for a long time now
