First OC'ing rig~ C2D - Help/Opinions as to Components Needed~

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was young and naieve when I bought myself my first pc.. An Emachines was all I could afford, so an Emachines was what I got.. Boy did I not know what I was letting myself in for.. Three years on, and a motorbike later, I've finally got enough to build a "proper" machine -

The Emachines died a few days ago (Good riddance.. ) so at present I'm making do with an 800mhz 'nix box, thus a new system is needed kind of sharpish. This is going to be a rig to overclock, and use as a learning curve, alongside general gaming and hopefully somewhat futureproof for the time being. Not too much to ask.

My Budget's roughly 1300 Euros (850gbp / 1500$) and the main site that I'm planning ordering from is here in Spain, mainly due to the rather nifty fact that by quoting it as a business expense, I get to claim the IVA (tax) back, giving me an extra hundred or so euros to play with. I'd also planned on ordering the Power Supply and Tuniq Tower From the UK as I haven't found it here, alongside a couple of Silverstone FM121's. Thus, my three sources are

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/index.php
And http://www.scan.co.uk/


This is the build I've been looking at, yet it Lacks RAM and a GFX Card~

CPU: Intel e6300

MoBo: Asus P5B Deluxe / Gigabite DS4 <- Undecided, what are the merits of one compared to the other?

Case: NZXT Trinity

HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 7200.10 - 250 Gb - 7200 RPM - 16 Mb - SATA-II

Screen LG Monitor TFT 19" L1952TQ-SF (4 ms)

Extras: AS5
(All the above from pixmania)
__________

Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream 600w

HeatSink: Tuniq Tower
(From Overclockers.co.uk)
___________

CaseFans:
3*Silverstone FM121's
(From Scan.co.uk)


RAM:
??

GFX CARD: ??

The leftover budget for Ram and a gfx card is about 250 Euros - I'm not overly fussed about a top notch card at present, as I'd rather wait 'till dx10 became more affordable~

Any suggestions, critique or changes to the above would be much appreciated, as my clicking finger is itching to start ordering.

Cheers,
~Gryph.
