View Full Version : New rig

I need advice with my new rig, just to make sure everything is okay before I buy it.

Mobo: Asus P5N-D, NF750i SLI, 775, PCI-E 2.0 (x16)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo, E8400

GFX: 896MB EVGA GTX 260 Or 512MB Gainward HD4870 (Can't decide, can anyone help for which to go with?)

PSU: 650W TX Corsair PSU, single 12V rail

Memory: 2GB (2x1GB) Corsair TwinX XMS2 Pro, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800)

CPU Cooler: Asus Triton 85

Hard Disk: I'm not sure, I was origonally going for a Velociraptor, but they're too expensive, I'm now thinking of going Raid 0 with 2 hard disks, but I need help on which ones i should go for, I'm looking for speed rather than space. (Also, i'm not certain on how to activate a Raid 0)

Case: I don't really know what Case to go for, they all seem the same. I'm just looking for one that is pretty silent, cool and in a reasonable price range.
