My shopping list - what do you think?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've decided to go for the following set-up... what do you guys think? Have I miss-matched anything? (Rig to be used mainly for photoshop work)

*ASUS P5B DLX/WIFI

*Corsair 1GB DDR2-6400 128Mx64 non-ECC 240 DIMM unbuffered 5-5-5-12

*Sapphire ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 256MB GDDR3 Dual DVI-I PCI-E

*Western Digital WD2500KS Caviar SE 250GB 7200RPM SATA2/300 16MB

*Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86ghz

*Shinobi Mid Tower Case - Silver Mesh Front Panel - With 500W PSU

Total cost is around: £503 including delivery.

I thought I could add more ram when needed and perhaps upgrade cpu next year or the year after (OC the 6300 for the time being tho).

I'm in no real rush tbh and am tempted to wait a bit as I find prices normally drop February ish time (?)...

x1650 is over priced. For the same price (at least in the states) you can get an x1950Pro or a 7900GS, either of which would be a much faster card.

Everything else looks top notch, though.

The X1650 pro is £69.73 ($136 USD) while the X1950Pro is £129 ($252 USD). As I won't really be playing any games, I didn't think I'd need much more...? The XFX 7900GS (450M core 256MB Dual DVI TVO PCI-E) is £104.98 ($203 USD). What do you think? Stick with original choice?

Tthe P5B without the wifi is £113.33 (or £124 with) guess I could save some money there and use my existing USB wifi, thanks! :-) Do you mean this one: Seagate ST3250620AS 250GB SATAII/300 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM? If so its pretty much the same price as the WD :-)

It's the retail box, so I guess comes with standard heatsink... I wont be doing any overclocking until I can afford the rest of the kit lol. The PSU comes with the case... 500W... could always get another one when I seriously get in to overclocking...?
