This is my first post on these forums, so please excuse any fopauxs.
I recently lost my gfx card and I have a fairly old (4 years) machine. I'm keeping some parts of the old rig to place into my new one, but I would very much like some guidance in doing so.
If you would be so kind as to bare with me, while I list a fair amount of components as I would like expert opinions about it.
I would like to order all these items from ebuyer.com as I have used them several times in the past and have never let me down. (Unless someone has a better website?)
- MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozen
- Corsair Cooling Air Series A70
(Reluctant about water cooling, as I don't trust myself installing it, or the long term effects :S)
- Intel Core i5 2400 3.1 GHz
- Asus P8Z68-V PRO Z68 MotherBoard
- Case + PSU (Bundle )
- Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3
- Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
- Sony Optiarc DVD/RW
I still have my old Screen, LG L207WT 20" Widescreen LCD Monitor (Sorry, don't have a link)
My final question being, how compatible these components are with one another, on a long term basis and for power. I have built a Rig in the past, but I feel it is necessary to get expert opinions on hardware, as I don't fully keep up with hardware release, etc.
Please could you list (if it is not too much to ask) the Pros and Cons and how I can improve said parts or "demote" some, to get a better reliable performance. Or list MAJOR flaws, please .
(The budget for this rig "should" be below £900, but if I go over £50 or so, it should be fine).
Thank you kindly in advance.
