Built my first computer.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, yesterday I build my first computer. I built it for one of my buddies because he needed a better gaming rig he told me. Anyway, here's the specs. Tell me what you think. Final price was about 900$.

CPU- E8400
MB-GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L
Mem- 2x2gb GSkill 1066mhz
GPU- EVGA 8800 GTS (g92)
Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 (not my idea, i wanted to install true or tuniq) and AS5
580W OCZ Power Supply
WD 500GB 7200 RPM HD
Sata Samsung CD/DVD Lightscribe Burner
NZXT Apollo Black Gaming Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146025
Tell Me what you think. We are thinking about overclocking since temps are sitting at 32C Idle and around 48C Load. Any suggestions or what not?

Everything looks very solid bro. The arctic freezer is a great cooler for the price, and if he's not OCing the CPU too much, it should be fine.

Looks fine. OCZ 580W is fine but this $70 Corsair is good also.

Yeah. I had him with a Corsair Power Supply but he skimped out on it last minute because it was a little more expensive. Oh Well.

BTW, if we over clocked, it would have been to around 3.2 to 3.4 if it would go that far without changing the voltage too much and without getting too hot.
