    New Games PC

    Was going to build a new PC, as my main one has had it.

    Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Mid Tower Case - No PSU
    EVGA 8800GTS SuperClocked 320MB DDR3 DVI PCI-E Graphics Card
    Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
    Logitech X-230 2.1 Speaker System - 32W RMS
    Seagate ST3250410AS 250GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM
    Samsung SH-S203B 20X DVDRW/RAM / DL Serial ATA Black Bare Drive - OEM
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping (2.4GHz 1066MHz) Socket 775 L2 8MB Cache (2x4MB (4MB per core pair)) Retail Boxed Processor
    (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Gold GX XTC CL5 DUAL CHANNEL (LIFETIME WARRANTY)

    Any one got any feed back before I order? I'm not really been keeping up with whats hot, and whats not?

    i just replaced my computer, used a shuttle xpc cube. it means you are limited on pci slots, but everything else is there, pci-e slot, space for up to 3 hard drives, build quality is great, lots of ports on the front, worth a look if its ur kind of thing.

    got a nice big widescreen samsung display too, didn't cost that much , probably less than the 15" it replaced was when i bought it!

    would recommend cclonline for ordering parts. you may find cheaper alternatives like ebuyer or dabs but the service from ccl is flawless.

    what monitor are you using? I would probably bump the the HDD, abit, it's not alot for a 500gb drive.. I would probably look at another 2gb later down the line, with the likes of crysis. What PSU are you getting?

    Overclockers are doing a good price on their own branded 8800 GTX atm.

    but it all depends on your budget.

    here is what i have just purchased.

    Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 Quad Core Processor(2.4GHz,8MB Cache,1066MHz)
    Genuine Windows Vista™ Home Premium Edition
    Digital / Analogue TV Tuner PCI Card
    Aluminium ATX Midi Tower + 550W PSU - Black
    PCI-Express Mainboard - SLI nForce 650i SLI(C55) - Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad-Core - ATX
    4GB DDR2 667MHz Memory -( 4x 1GB )
    750GB (1x 500GB + 1x 250GB) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 16MB Buffer
    LightScribe Super Format 18x Dual Layer DVD Writer +R/-R/RW/RAM
    768MB nVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX - Dual DVI, HDTV, TV-Out
    22" Widescreen LCD TFT Digital Display with internal speakers (DVI, 5ms)
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card (oem)
    Logitech S500 - 5.1 Speakers with Subwoofer
    Logitech Cordless Keyboard & Cordless Optical Mouse

    Yeah i will get another drive as I want it running RAID 0, and yup I will chuck some more memory in later.

    I'll be sticking with XP Pro unless there is some massive reason to go to VISTA - multi threading?
