Hey there Guys i may be able to get a new rig at some point. However this is no definate. If all went to plan i would of course be getting a Conroe rig.<br><br>
Now i have made a build idea for myself however im wondering if you guys could hazard a shot at it.<br><br>
Lets just say the max amount is around £1000.<br><br>
What list of things can you people come up with.. All help is much appreciated.<br><br>
Cheers.

Do you want to keep anything from your old system or start new all over?

Completely new Rig. Screen doesnt need to be taken into consideration too much...However ideas on a screen are also welcomed.

<br />
Abit > Gigabyte<br />
Pioneer > Asus<br />
Freezer 7 > Zalman 9500<br />
Plus you don't need a 700W PSU <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

I am with muffin. It looks like the better rig of the two. However, I'd likely swap the Raptor for two drives in RAID0.<br />
<br />
Let me see what I would get, without looking at both your suggestions <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
