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.

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.
