Your choices look fantastic, there really is no need for any further comments/changes.
Why shux, thanks
I can' take full credit for all of it, I had some help...
Of course, I will give my comments wink.gif
Thats why I made the thread
Thanks for the quick reply!
I personally prefer Gigabyte or Abit motherboards as I've had bad experiences with ASUS in the past, but if it works for you then it works!
Well, I can't say ASUS has "worked" for me in the past because this would be my first build, but I assume it has worked for many others. I really have no way of leverage towards Gigabye/Abit/ASUS motherboards because I have no experience with them. So any more specifics and opinions are very much appreciated
This power supply is also 700W and very good quality, just a little cheaper for you. Thermaltake do have good products in their Toughpower range, though.
I checked out the reviews and specs of these two power supplies and have found minimal differences. How will the following differences effect my set up?OCZ GameXStream
- Fans 120mm fan x 1
- Modular Cabling Support No
- Input Frequency Range 50/60 Hz
- Fans Silent 140mm Fan
- Modular Cabling Support Yes
- Input Frequency Range 47 - 63 Hz
If you don't do heavy gaming, you could even downgrade the graphics card a bit, I have that card (Gainward) and it's excellent. If you do think it's overboard, try looking for one of these (in stock, of course). Or something like this if you aren't against an ATI card.
Would WoW be considered heavy? Whats Gainward?
Why would I be against an ATI card? Do they have a bad reputation?
Would you not need to add a wireless card? And also an OS (i.e. Windows Vista, perhaps)?
Come to think of it, I most likely need a wireless card and an OS.
Any suggestions on the wireless card? If there is a part I want to make sure I get the top of the line, it would be the wireless card! I'm still below my price cap, use that money!
I am currently running Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) on my laptop and am very satisfied with it. I think thats what i'm sticking with. Should I upgrade to a better form of vista?]
Sorry for writing the novel, but I want to be as specific as possible!
