New build.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Two months ago I made the last computer upgrade but I plan soon to upgrade it again.

Currently I have:
- CPU: Intel Pentium D945 3.4 GHz
- MB: ASUS P5LD2-SE
- RAM: PQI 1GB DDR2 667
- GFX: ASUS GeForce 6600 256MB 128bit
- CPU Cooler: ASUS V-Nardo
- Sound: Razer Barracuda AC-1 Sound Card
- HDD: ExcelStor J880S 80GB 7200
- PSU: Delux 450W

And I am plan of getting these:
- CPU: Intel Core2Duo E6320 or E6420
- MB: ASUS P5B or P5B-E or P5B-E Plus
- RAM: 2GB G.Skill HZ Series PC6400
- GFX: Sapphire Ati X1650 or X1950 or Inno3D GeForce 7600GT with Zalman VF-900 or ASUS 7900 GS
- CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 6+
- Sound: I will keep my sound card.
- HDD: I will get one more WD 250GB SATA2.
- PSU: Spire 600W RockeTeer VI

Just tell me what should I change and why. What do you recommend. I am not an expert so I expect opinion from you.

GFX: 8800GTS 640MB. Don't get a 7600 or 1650, the 1950 would be okay also if you're trying to save cash.
PSU: SilverStone OP650 if you can get your hands on it. It's got the stoutness.

Rest looks good. You got a link to a website that ships to Macedonia?

No, I don't have link and I have never seen a store that ships in Macedonia. I'm looking in some of our shops that give me dealer price. Here we can find everything except good PSUs. Below's a list of good PSUs I can get:

- CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 550W PFC (RP-550-PCAP)
- CoolerMaster Real Power 450W (RS-450-ACLY) I can't afford for this either
- Spire RockeTeer V 500W
- Spire RockeTeer VI 600W
Other PSUs you can find on our market are only some crappy China made Delux and A-Power.

PS. 8800 Series are really expensive here and I can't afford that much. I can get a 7900GS too.

Okay thought so. Go with the X1950 then.
I don't know Rocketeer and when you say 600W (450W actual) it scares me.
