Budget Intel build - e4500 P5N-E

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey a dude I know is looking to upgrade. Originally wanted to get a 5000+ we revised some parts this morning. Basically budget is tight and can't really afford much more, on each part.

Just checking to see if you guys think this, is a decent build. Parts wise, and if you would change any such parts, for ones in the same price range. Cheers for any replies.

For that price, you might be able to snag a 9600gt. I'm not sure how the MIR's are in the UK, so the 9600gt may be too expensive. but ecspecially in america, 9600gt's with some rebates can equate to roughyl the price of an 8800GS. both great cards though.

also i suggest he wait until the 7200 comes out instead of the E4400. it will deffinately be stronger at stock and OC'd. The rest of the build looks fairly tight, and i guess the mouse just comes down to preference.

The 2 best sites in the uk for price (including p&p) are scan.co.uk and ebuyer.co.uk

Ebuyer and scan have the lowest prices IMO and both have good service. Ebuyer has a >£50=Free delivery deal, and scan has a free delivery deal (over £23.50 if you become a frequent forum poster on http://forums.hexus.net/scan-care-hexus/)

IMO I find scan is slighty better

also i would consider looking at this cpu E7200, it can overclock alot more than an e4XXX range + its wolfdale.

Got a 8800gt and a better processor
it is a nice list, however i still suggest waiting for the e7200 unless it has to be purchased this instant. (maybe someone can confirm the 7200 dates, i forget ) i'm just wondering, if the system is going to be OC'd, will the psu be sufficient enough? it would deffinately hold up at stock. so is the system going to be oc'd ?

The psu has 36a on the 12v rail. So its plenty. The wattatge is fine for a system like this even overclocked. I think the e7200 would be out of budget unfortunately
