Last review before i buy.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i made a post about 3 weeks back about my first build:i got some good feedback. I now have the money to buy the parts but i have made some changes to it, i wanted to run it by you guys and see if they are ok.
PS: i wont be over clocking anytime soon thus no need for a heatsink ( i can add one later right?), O i almost forgot i wont need to buy any extra things to put the parts together will i? , like super glue ( ok bad example but you know what i mean) i just want to be prepared and of course any suggestion to help make this build cheaper is appreciated.

Parts look ok but i'd change the MSI GTX460 to something better. U could get the 6950 2GB for around $240 after rebate now and it's a better car, or maybe a GTX560 Ti if u like Nvidia. Also u don't have the CPU cooler yet, if you plan on OCing, i suggest u get one. Also you can create a brand new Newegg account and use this coupon NEWGEEK25 for $25 off 100.

I dont mind getting it since they are the same price but why shouldn't i, is Biostar a bad brand?

Biostar is a fine brand.

He is just sad that he paid more, and didn't get any more features than the biostar.

You're gonna need some thermal paste, as in http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCateg...ompound-Grease

Many like the Artic Silver 5, others like Shin-Etsu. Check youtube for application tips.

What does he need that for?

The stock heatsink comes with it pre-applied.
