Case: Antec P150
Proc: Core 2 Duo E6600
Motherboard: P5B-E Plus or P5B Deluxe
Memory: PQI DDR2-800
GPU: Asus EN8600GT Silent (fanless) or EN8600GT (with fan)
HDD: Samsung HD321KJ
DVD: Asus DRW-1814BLT
HSF: Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B or Scythe Arctic Freezer 7 Pro
The P5B-E Plus will be my most likely choice as this seems to fit my needs quite well, but I havenít ruled out the P5B Deluxe completely, although it is about $50 more expensive. The cooling seems better on the deluxe, which is an important issue here in summer.
The EN8600GT Silent is about $30 (Iím converting from yen) more the version with a fan. Iíve heard the fan on this is pretty quiet so Iím haven't made a decision about which yet.
The Ninja seems very highly regarded but I get the impression it may not be so easy to fit hence the alternative of the freezer 7 Pro which Iíve read is relatively easy to fit.
Comments on the proposed build are very gratefully accepted.
many many thanks.
