Corsair 520W PSU will enable you to upgrade to an 8800GTX or even 8900's when they hit the market. Just my 2 cents!

Well point made

They don't sell corsair at my shop anymore

They do however have a EUR129 tagan 700Watt with a 52Amps of 12v and 4PCIe connections


Will that do the trick

I'm in the Netherlands, have a local store where i buy all my things, and am stuck /w the stupid 19% import tax.

So here's a list /w parts 'n prices, tips on what i should or should'nt buy apreciated.

MOBO: MSI p35 Neo-F E119,-
CPU: C2D E6420 E189,-
RAM: GEIL 2gb DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 E89,-
GFX: Asus 8600GT 256MB (EN8600GT/2DHT) E139,-
CASE: Thermaltake Soprano + window E69,-
PSU: Antec NeoHE Power E95,-
SND: X-fi ExtremeMusic E69,-
Cooling:Thermaltake Bigtyp 120 (CPU) E39,-
Zalman VF900-cu LED E32,-
Storage:Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB (0.22 eur/GB) E119,-
Samsung SH-S183L (SATA DVD-RW) E29, - Samsung SH-D163A (SATA DVD-ROM) E19,-
Monitor: Iiyama E1900WS-B3 E189,-
Input: Logitech MX518 Laser MouseE49,-
Logitech Media EliteE29,-


Total 1274 EUR and i don't wanna go above that acutually

Plus for upgrade's after that, i'm thinking a WD Raptor, or better GFX.
Drop your mouse down to the MX510, you will not notice any difference and you even get an extra button. Also, you don't need the VF900 right away. The stock cooler is more than adequate (and quiet) to allow you to overclock. If you decide down the road that you still want to replace it, you can and it leaves an upgrade path. I intended to replace my stock cooler, but now feel no need after using it for several months. With these savings, you should be able to upgrade to the 8800gts.

Again they don't sell G-skills, they even took away MDT and Corsair.

And the zalman gpu cooler actually was meant for the 8600gt, don't think it'll be much better than the 8800gts cooler.

I just wan't a high dpi/precision mouse wich works at least .

So good advice all. i'll post a new list in a while.

I really hate they don't have g-skills cuz the clock like crazy

You'll probably be very happy with the 320. The only strike it has is running extreme apps, at high resolutions with max settings. I can run all my games with it, full textures, but w/out anti-aliasing on my 1920x1080 screen. If you have something smaller, you'll be rocking with that card.

How much of a difference would a 10000 rpm make.

I know the HDD is the slowest part in that whole damn thing.
But how much faster would it be with a 150gb raptor in it

And is it worth the extra 200EUR

i'd say get 2 7200 drives and raid 0 them instead of the raptor (WD or Seagate are both good drives)
