Please help me get this systems specs bang on - Page 2

Nasgal - we get ripped off here in the UK! You guys get a far better deal over there for practically everything :-)

Thanks for the help re timings too. With regards to the GSKIL and Team extremes, its £30 difference which is about $58 - is it worth it? I heard that if I get the e6600 I won't need to worry about the ram as much? :-/

Team Xtreem ram is awesome, and it comes with Micron D9 memory chips - the best memory chips there are on DDR2 at the minute
Thanks! Definately considering them.. are they worth the extra £30 tho when paired with an e6600?

I got them from a number of stores: ebuyer.com scan.co.uk overclockers.c.uk
and microdirect.co.uk

The 1950pro (256MG version) has gone up by 10quid tho! As has the P5B DLX (ebuyer) I think everything else is the same. But if you want the P5B non-wifi microdirect has for around £120 i think.

All prices include vat

Yep agree, home prem sounds like the better one to go for. Re vat - it is always added for consumers, however businesses can claim vat back for goods they use themselves (but they have to charge it to their customers when selling themselves).

Definitely - you'll be able to reach higher clocks with that RAM.

Excellent!

Btw, how do you find your PSU? People (elsewhere) are telling me not to get it and to go for a 'better' one, but I really liked the look of it..

It's awesome, I haven't had any problems with it so far and it's really quiet, even when under full load.. although, saying that, my Tuniq and Graphics card fan drown everything out

That's quite a bargain you got going on there, but I want to ask you other guys....Isn't AMD better for video editing since it has that integrated 3d thing? just curious

Just noticed you bought the stuff already!


you can get a bigger LCD for less!

http://www.jlcustompc.com/kds22wilcd.html <------ international shipping!

Get the 512mb X1950 much better card

P5B will serve you just fine!

E6600

G.Skill or Corsair Both are very good its personal preference imho

If you want to go Dual GPU's that psu will not support the 8800 series FYI, if you plan to ever go Nvidia!

iamme - no I haven't bought it yet I wouldn't want to buy from abroad tho tbh, just in case I need to send it back for any reason. I will prob wait for the TFT tho and spend more on the rig itself right now..

Shifty - I don't think the AMDs are touching the C2Ds at the mo, in any area..

Adam - good stuff! Will let you know what I end up with, still got a couple of weeks to go before taking the plunge!

Don't get that Hiper PSU, I've heard they're bad, so I wouldn't get that if I were you, get the OCZ Game XStream 600W PSU, 115 European pesos, not bad.

It's about an extra tenner... what I might do then is get the better psu and all the other 'extra' bits, but get the 6300 now, and then next year get a better cpu... I imagine the 6600 will be roughly the cost of what a 6300 is now - and maybe the quads will be much cheaper too by then.

That will give me a cheaper cpu to 'play with' (OC wise) and means I will have a spare cpu incase anything happens to the one I OC with, or, a spare if I ever need to build an extra PC.

I think the 6300 is bound to be good for at least a year.... what do you think?
