Build ME A C2D! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Yeah ^^ I'm going for the 2GB G.Skill no matter what. It has to be in my system - I love that RAM so much!
I can get an E6600 (hopefully) for £120 from Joeking, so I've PM'ed him. He also has a P5B-Deluxe for £60. Would one of these be better than something like the P5N-E and DS3?

well, i know someone who had a P5B-Deluxe, it is a weird mobo, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

i think you would be better off with a DS3 really.

you don't need to worry about getting a E6600 too much either, an E6420 will be pretty much as good, its got the same cache, and just runs at a slower stock clockspeed.

I have *counts* a total of £450-480 to spend on: CPU, Mobo, RAM, PSU, Hard Drive(s). I already have a Case and GPU

So, could someone build me a great gaming rig for this budget? From a UK website? To give you an idea of what I'll be doing on the PC: I'll be playing lots of games (Crysis when it's out) ... BF2.. CS: Source - and I want it to be fairly futureproof.

Some UK sites you could use:
www.overclockers.co.uk
www.scan.co.uk
www.ebuyer.co.uk
www.aria.co.uk
www.tekheads.co.uk

Could all you 1337 C2D peoplez0rz build me some cool PC? Your efforts will not go overlooked Cheers!
im kidda hoping batman blows up, should be a poll or something
