    Exclamation New desktop x2 Core

    Hello peps.
    I've decided long ago to build my own desktop with value/price criteria.
    I live in Greece so it was a bit though to order something from abroad, so i had to find a local shop. The system i came up with is the following:

    CPU:AMD Athlon x2 6000+
    Motherboard:Asus Crosshair
    Case:Thermaltake Soprano Window B1000BWS
    PSU:Seasonic S12 650W+80 energy
    RAM:OCZ DDR2 PC2 6400 Reaper HPC(2Gb kit)
    Graphics:Sparkle Calibre 8600GT 512mb
    HDD: Western Digital 250Gb Raid Edition
    DVD RW: Nec Labelfish.

    What i want from you is to try to find the same parts in your country(and tell me the local price and the distributor's site) or suggest me some other hardware.(the total price is about 950euro).

    Definitely look into an Intel rig. Unfortunately, AMD really can't keep up right now with these CPUs. Here are some parts you should check out:

    CPUs:
    Intel C2D E6420
    Intel C2D E6600

    Motherboards:
    Gigabyte DS3 P965
    Gigabyte DS3R p35
    DFI P965-S Dark
    Asus P5K p35

    Memory:
    2GB Crucial Ballistix
    2GB G.Skill 'HZ'

    That is all I would really change from your original list. Everything else looks good.

    | Dell Studio17 Laptop |

    | T9300 @ 2.5Ghz - ATI 3850 - 3GB RAM - Seagate 320GB 7200rpm - 17" (1920x1200) Glossy widescreen | Windows 7 64-bit |

    Popular sites that people usually use in the US to purchase parts.

    www.newegg.com
    www.zipzoomfly.com
    www.tigerdirect.com

    Don't know if that helps. NewEgg pretty much takes the cake in my books.
