New PC, Good, bad? Help please.


Ok, I lost the old topic but here:

Mobo: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/145751
2xRAM:
Processor: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152394
GFX/GPU Card: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/148278
Hard Drive: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130826

Case:
PSU: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/134677

Mobo says: non-ECC, un-buffered memory...etc What RAM Shall I buy, I want 8GB

I would like to keep it under 1000, so if the 8gig of ram is to much lower it to 4GB, but if the PSU can't handle all of what is listed then I will want 8gig of ram and lower the GFX card to 1x4870 Sapphire...

What case is better: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/148685 or http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155939

What CPU Fan/Sink should i buy?

It looks good. That site is kicking my ass or I would recommend some memory, any CAS 4 800Mhz ram will do. For the case I would go with the HAF, but either will work. For a HSF get a TRUE or Zigamatek S1283 w/ backplake if available over there. The PSU if fine.

Looks like a solid build. PSU selected should be fine.
G.Skill ram seems to be really popular these days, good prices and quality chips by most accounts.
Both cases are really nice, have great cooling potential. Really comes down to personal style and preference.
Something like the Xigmatek s1283 Dark Knight (comes w. bolt-thru kit and fan included) would keep that quad pretty cool.

EDIT: this Corsair kit should be a nice fit for your build (or 2x this kit if you want 8gigs)

You will see about 1-2% gain with 1066 vs 800. So no point paying extra.

And that's in benchmarks. In everyday use you will never notice the difference. The money would be better spent going towards a better video card, cooling, etc.

I'm partial to Samsung panels, but that is just a personal preference. I had a NEC lcd monitor and it was possibly the nicest panel I have owned. I like the Asus better, never thought too highly of LG panels after shopping for lcd tv's and looking at them side by side the competition.

For example, the processor I showed in top post alot of people say it is not very good because of some missing chip or something..

Hi, make sure the ram matches those specs on your mobo manual i.e non ecc etc. Years ago I bought 1gb stick cost me a lot of money back then, but got it from abroad and it didnt work!

My 4gb 800mhz Black dragon ram does me fine, and at £10 per gb. But never used with a quad, but stable with my athlon 5000+ oc.

Dude if you cant be bothered setting up a new account with another online store, then you better stay off the internet, because you will end up seeing what you buy for cheaper!

I have spent the last week looking at mobo prices before I buy its worth the effort, got my x3 720BE for £110.00 (uk) after some serious surfing!

That Zalman cooler is more flash than performance... you would be better off overall with this Noctua for a couple quid more.

That Noctua cooler is known to be a great performer and very quiet. SOme AS5 wouldnt hurt, either.
