I am building my first computer and need some help, I have selected these parts for it and am just wondering if thats good for my money, I also need help on how to set up the on button/reset button and lcds, that kinda stuff if anyone can help with that, like were to plug them all in and stuff xD, this is what I was thinking of - (note - price is in new zealand dollars 1 usd is about 0.7 nzd)
Just a normal gaming one xD - $140
XFX MG-N780-ISH9 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - $412
are you silly you shouldn't be paying $412 for that motherboard take a look at this same board for alot less.
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor 2.40Ghz LGA775 8M Cache 1066FSB #Q6600 - $392
same again paying too much for this.
G.SKILL 4GB kit (2GB x 2) DDR2-800 (PC-6400) CL4-4-4-12 MEMORY RETAIL F2-6400CL4D-4GBPK - $209
here again paying too much
Hard Drive -
Seagate 150gb 10000RPM - $300
is this going to be enough for all your needs.
if it is then i would go with this.
if it is not then go with this
personally i would go with the 10000 rpm as the operating drive then have a 1 terabyte drive as the drive where you save all your games,etc
Video Card -id get this card it is nice and will handle pretty much every game out there on very good settings. however it is pretty big so make sure you have a big case.
however if you plan on running sli in your rig then i would personally go for these two.
however if you do plan on running any of these cards i have picked out for you i would recommend that you use a 1000watt power supply or 800,850 at the minimum.
Thanks for any help xD
