Can somebody reccomend me a:
-Graphics Cooler (Do i really need these?)
-Memory Cooler (Do i really need these?)
-Northbridge Cooler (Do i really need these?)
-And any other cooling I might have missed out!

Can be from any UK retailer but www.scan.co.uk and www.overclockers.co.uk preferabley. Thanks for any input.

You don't need any But you can if you wish to.

Graphics: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=SY-008-ZA
Northbridge: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=HS-026-TR
Memory: I'm not sure.

They are pretty pointless though, however the graphics cooler is quiet

Ye, i won't get them with the core components, just something to think about

Okay well i'm dead set on nearly all of the components now, but i'm thinking - if i go for an E6600 instead of a E6300/6400, will i see that much of a performance boost in everyday applications and gaming? I really want this rig to last me for as long as possible (with maybe a dx10 upgrade).

My question is: will having an E6600 now make this rig last longer than with a lower-end CPU? Is it worth it?

It is better, but I do not think it will last you longer than if you bought an E6300, heres why. For the chip to get outdated either amd or intel will release a new line of processors. Take today for example, the E6300 outperforms the best AMD has to offer. Therefore, in however many years time, AMDs/Intels entry level chip will outperform both the E6300 and the E6600. Therefore the E6600 is not more "future proof" than the E6300, but it is still a better chip.

Will i see that much of a difference in applications then?
post #68 of 114
You will see a difference, obviously. However it is no more "future proof". It is a better chip and will perform better, if you can afford it go for it, great, if you can't its no big loss.
