Need to build a new rig!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well after a IHS removal gone wrong i've totaled my FX55 and my X800 is now without a cooler so i've decided to build a new rig.

I want to keep the Coolermaster Stacker 830 case and the Hard Disks, it's highly unlikely that my ddr500 ram will be any good with my new rig so i'll be selling that and the Hiper Type-R 580w probably won't be powerful enough so ill sell that. (Hiper Type-R 580w just got a brand new one from RMA, (delete)

So ill be needing a new CPU, GPU, RAM and motherboard and most likely a PSU.

At the moment I can afford to save £100 from my wages per week (only and apprentice so not alot of money.)

So about £400 per month to save up and buy it all. Does anyone know what I should get and how long I should save up for before buying one. I'm probably looking to spend about £800 - £1400.

I want something with:-

Dual Core or more
2GB RAM or more
High performance graphics card probably 8800 series.
PSU that will be powerfull enough and stable.
Good overclocking motherboard.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thats will probably cost about £1100, so eleven weeks to save it, R600 might be out by then so I could look into that.

Adding to Option's suggestions, I'd get an e6600 since its got the 4MB of onboard and it OCs well too. I'd wait until R600 before buying anything also. If you do go for R600, you can buy the RD600 for CF support.
