I have just ordered the rig you can all see below, but I just wanted to make perfectly sure, that there is no suggestions to a better rig for the money, before I get the computer. If there is, I'll probably be able to contact the seller, and change some of the parts.

Thanks in advance,

Well, I prefer the DFI Lanparty over the Asus A8N and if you wanted to overclock the CPU, you might want to get some better RAM, but not sure if you could get some without spending more money. (You'd have to get PC4000, not PC3200)

Other than that it looks good.

I would get a DFI Lanparty motherboard over an Asus. Don't get Kingston ram, spend the money and get some good stuff, PC4000 as already suggested, and go with an EVGA or XFX video card. I have an EVGA and its totally awesome.

Asus mobo and GPU are fine, but did you also buy that monitor or did you already have it? Never heard of that brand and that's never a good sign.....otherwise looks good!

Bought the moniter some weeks ago. Never heard of the brand either, and was afraid, especially after seeing that the company didn't even talk about it on their official website. However, a lot of good reviews from other buyers, I decided buying it. Although it has a refresh rate of 16 ms it doesn't do any ghosting at all, it doesn't have any pixel errors and the picture is sharp as hell, so I'm satisfied with it.


As for the GPU, I think I have to believe Remonster, as that's the conclusion I had come to. The Mobo and RAMs are what I'm most afraid of, especially the RAM.

Look at your motheboard's manufacturer's website for suggested ram. If you plan on overclocking and want a two gig set, g-skill sets are great and compatibility issues with that ram isn't very common.
