Hi Antimsaash,

Can you tell us if this is pre-built or just parts (and you will be building it yourself)?
What is the price for this computer?
What are you going to use the computer for?
Will you be overclocking?

Thanks,
Kamille

Hi

It is just parts that i'm going to assemble. The price of the computer is $1652.00.. It is mainly for graphics design and gaming.. Like 3d rendering and stuff. About overclock, i do not know how to do it and i am pretty unaware of the term overclock...


Thanks

Hi Antimsaash,

There's a few things I would change, here are my suggestions:

For Computer Case, I suggest you go with a Full size ATX case because the GTX 295 video card you have is big and might not fit that mid-size ATX case. The video card is 10.5" long. Something like the Coolermaster HAF 932 or the Antec Twelve Hundred would fit this GTX 295 without overlapping the hard drive cage.

For Power Supply, I suggest something like Corsair 850W as its a better quality and it is also the cheapest good brand 850W power supply.

For the hard drive, what brand is that one you picked? Western Digital, Seagate and Samsung are very reliable.

Select Corsair for your RAM as I don't know what Major Brand is.

Note that there's a combo deal for the Motherboard and CPU you selected at Newegg.

What is overclocking? Read up here. You must know what you're doing before overclocking because if you make a mistake, there are risks such as frying your computer parts.

Hope that helps.
Kamille
