Friend's Christmas build.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm building a PC for a friend & This is what I came up with.
Budget: €1200 Excluding case.


Case: NZXT Phantom White (Already Ordered)
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair IV Formula
Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T BE
Memory:
Graphics Card: Gigabyte GV N450OC2-1GI
Power Supply: NZXT Hale90 650W
Hard disk: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Cooling:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM

Total: About €800


For memory I was thinking 'Mushkin Enchanced Blackline 2x2GB DDR3 1600 6-8-6-24'

For Cooling I leaning towards a corsair H70 and mod the case so it fits in the top. I would get Noctua D14 but it doesn't fit with the side fan on.

I was also thinking about adding a OCZ Vertex 2 128GB SSD for BOOT and most used programs/games.


Any suggestions will be apreciated.

EDIT: I don't need suggestions on the graphics card, I know GTS 450 is not the top of the line, but It will later be used as ded physx and it will do for now.

You can buy that now, or you can wait for Sandy Bridge in like 17 days and get something even better for about the same $$$.

I might just do that.
However, How does the new sandy bridge i5/i7's compare to 1090T in multithreaded programs?

What site are you buying it at? I would suggest a better PSU, maybe a Corsair HX620 and a better GPU, just as the GTX460 or the 6850-70...

Hale90 is a gold certified PSU. Recommened by THIS forum(FAQ Thread) & is Used by OC3D in their new christmas builds. I honestly don't see the need to get a different one. Not to mention the fact that It's a lovely white color.
Better GPU? Read the red text in my first

actually, they are the same price. And the mushkin kit looks better. =)

Ah, it's lower here; in that case I would definitely recommend going with the Mushkins.
