    Default New rig

    Thinking of building another PC when my next pay check arrives. Intend to build a cheaper PC unlike my other monster of a rig.
    This is what i intend to get. What do you think?

    Lian-Li PC-G70 Aluminum Mid Tower - Black - ~£140
    Intel C2D e6600 - £195
    DFI Lanparty UT ICFX3200T2R/G RD600 - ~£165
    CellShock 2GB (2 x 1G DDR2 PC2-8000C4 1000MHz Dual Channel Kit - ~£265
    Enermax Galaxy 1Kw PSU - ~£190
    2x X2800XTX (when they come out) - ~£900
    (No HDD, will use mine)
    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music 7.1 Soundcard - ~£45


    CPU Cooling:
    Aquacomputer Cuplex XT Silver
    Aquacomputer Twinplex Chipset Silver Blocks x2
    Aquacomputer V-Reg Block
    Aquatube
    Aquastream Pump
    Rads undecided

    GPU Cooling:
    2x EK X2800XTX/8900GTX blocks (if they come out)
    Thermochill PA160 Rad
    Laing D5
    Alphacool Repack Reservoir

    Total: ~£2680

    Still undecisive with the mobo and graphics as i've heard that the R600 has been delayed yet again, so i might just buy an SLi flavour mobo.
    Stumped between the:

    Abit IN9 32X-MAX WiFi nForce 680
    Asus Striker Extreme nForce 680
    EVGA nForce 680

    Opinions/Suggestions welcome

    Heres what i have planned so far:

    *Case exterior will be anodized either purple, blue or red (undecided)
    *Case interior will be chromed
    *Radiators will also be chromed
    *HDD rack at the bottom front will be completely removed to make way for the rad.
    *2 large fan brackets in the pic will also be removed.
    *case will be covered with Acoustipack Sound proff mats
    *Side panels will have a laser cut design

    you seem to know more than me but i would wait for ati anyway just to see if nvidia will lower the prices. it should only be till the end of next month befor ati releases the cards.
    o and btw why are you buying a new e6600? just take it off your old system unless you planing on selling that old one or something

    I was planning on waiting for the prices to drop.. but AFAIK, ATI has delayed their cards so it'll be a while before prices will shoot down.

    I was thinking of transferring half of my current parts over as i'll be putting a 6300 in this rig.

    yep ati has postponed the launch by quite a few months now.

    all looks solid to me, have you thought about an E4300, they look like great value to me and a bit of fun too.

    You call that's cheap?
    It's over $5200 US, I call it damn expensive. It is a dream machine for me.

    Thumbs up

    Carbine, I would leave the ATI route, I though long about this but decided I was probably better off not waiting (either that or I'm just damn impatient) and going for an EVGA 8800, then if they release the 8900 within 90days you can upgrade for free (if you want to) also EVGAs ACS3 series of card coolers are better looking and better cooling than any other manufacturers modified reference design cooler and you donít have to fork out on another 100 to 200 squid on water blocks later on.


    Also if your trying to keep things quiet inside the case, the Galaxy 1kw is meant to be quite loud. Look up the OCZ ProXtreme 1kw PSU, its energy efficiency ratings are better than that of the Galaxy, its smaller (standard PSU size), cheaper, and only has 1 80mm fan. Only downside is it doesnít have an on/off switch.

    Apart from that it looks good, I personally went for a Lian Li V1200 for my build but only because I like the shape, length (as apposed to height) and I have my computer on the left hand side of me (V1200 is all reverse).

    Thanks for the suggestions dude but its ok. I'm now planning on keeping my x1900xtx for the time being until the 8900s are released.

    BTW you mentioned, 'if they release the 8900 within 90days you can upgrade for free (if you want to)' , how does that work?!

    Oh and as for the Enermax Galaxy, its bit too late as i already have one and yes.. it does seem to be noisy.. looks like i'll change the 80mm rear fan as i reckon thats where the noise is being emitted the most. Plus it was a bargain when i bought it... £180 brand new plus shipping.

    The G70 looks nicer in my opinion but everone is different so


    Plus due to finances (should my sale go well), anodizing might have to wait till later this year as i got lots of bills to pay off but i now know which colour i will be choosing. Only time will tell when i release pics of the newly anodized case. I will not be mentioning the colour till that time

    off topic, but hows that sale going? i want my Asus board sold and an EVGA on my desk soon lol

    The second your board is sold and the money is in your bank, let those other buyers know my board is for the taking for the same price.

    In all honesty I don't think you will be waiting to long for the 8900 to be released, but seeing as I want to get on the go ASAP and have only got AGP cards I needed to get the 8800.
    The 90day upgrade thing from EVGA is quite strict, you can read about it here http://www.evga.com/stepup/default.asp?switch=3 (dose not work in Mozilla browsers). Its called the "EVGA STEP-UP Program" and the rules seem fair enough, only problem is not using your computer while you get a new card .

    Looks like you got a great deal on your Galaxy PSU! And I think you will be better off for replacing the 80mm fan in the rear. My Hyper 580w PSU in my old machine has a 120 and 80 fan and the 80mm is defiantly a little to noisy.

    The second your board is sold and the money is in your bank, let those other buyers know my board is for the taking for the same price.

    The 90day upgrade thing from EVGA is quite strict, you can read about it here http://www.evga.com/stepup/default.asp?switch=3 (dose not work in Mozilla browsers). Its called the "EVGA STEP-UP Program" and the rules seem fair enough, only problem is not using your computer while you get a new card .

    Looks like you got a great deal on your Galaxy PSU! And I think you will be better off for replacing the 80mm fan in the rear. My Hyper 580w PSU in my old machine has a 120 and 80 fan and the 80mm is defiantly a little to noisy.

    Ahh i see.... well i might stick with my X1900XTX till that time.

    As for the PSU.. which 80mm fan would you suggest i go for?

    I would always recommend going to sleeve based fans (instead of ball bearing fans) but as to a particular brand/model I don't use any specifically. Don't forget that changing the fan on the power supply will invalidate any warranty period, and fans in power supplies often donít have standard connections and can be soldered directly to the circuitry.:rolleyes:
