Suggestions for a £1,000 C2D build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok guys my British friend needs help with a build and he's put me in charge of selecting the parts. I dont' know if he can overclock? So post a good OC guide for that specific chip and the mobo of your choice please

Ok as the title says he's willing to spend £1,000 +- the price

I was thinking something like a 600w PSU
A DX10 card minimum 8600gts, what ever money permits.
A 680i chipset
1 or 2gb of ram what ever budget permits. So please help my friend out.

Also if in the end he decides not to build, please link to some UK pc companies because i don't know any that will build him a nice custom pc not a company like Dell or anything.

This system will run like a beast The PSU has 50A on the 12V .. And has enough wattage to power that GTX, along with the rest of the system

JESUS CHRIST now that's a computer and without breaking the bank, i almost forgot how affordable pc's can be. I do like your idea of that full built system and it's OC'd.

I think we can scale down on that 500gb HDD and get a 250, will it be possible to go with two 8800gts's in SLI?

Yeah, that PSU should be fine for two GTS'es.
Get two of these: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...tid=56&subcat=

Definetely get 640MB, whatever you do. Memory-hungry games will thank you later.

He should think about getting this: ASUS P5B-Deluxe. Saves him alot of money and the P5B is a great overclocking motherboard for less price.

That Mobo + CPU + RAM + GPU SLi (which will be affordable if you take the mobo down to P5B) will own all current and many, many games to come.

I'm thinking this250GB Segate instead of that 500gb monster doesn't need that much space

So i just counted using my trusty TI-34 that if he get's the 250gb HDD he saves about 35 dollars, and then if he minuses that 8800gtx and get's two 8800gts's then he's still in budget.



O DAM we forgot the case,cpu cooling and optical drives.
