New system

Hi guys :wink:

Yesterday I bought my very own, new computer!
The one I have today is like 6 years old (Pentium IV), and so I really needed a new one.

Since I've passed my exams lately, the present I got from both my parents, was to build a new computer for myself.

And here it is:

[url=http://azerty.nl/winkelmandje/winkelmandje/?legen=1&product[216504]=1&product[7505]=1&product[81174]=2&product[97107]=1&product[63572]=1&product[195565]=1&product[35579]=1&product[196104]=1&product[192553]=1&product[86876]=1]http://azerty.nl/winkelmandje/winkelmandje/?legen=1&product[216504]=1&product[7505]=1&product[81174]=2&product[97107]=1&product[63572]=1&product[195565]=1&product[35579]=1&product[196104]=1&product[192553]=1&product[86876]=1[/url]

(It's a Dutch site, but it's just the components you want to see :P

The Core i7-920 will be the newest (D0 stepping),
and the GPU is because of the budget, and because I don't play high-end games.
The 2 WD Caviar Black's will be used in a RAID 0 setup.
And, of course, a HUGE case.

I just wanted to share this very happy moment with you guys xD

What do you all think? :D

Not bad though I can't see why you bought a CPU cooler and a relatively weak GPU? You going to overclock your CPU despite having your GPU possibly bottle necking it?

...Wait, did you get two CPU coolers (don't speak Dutch so perhaps I misunderstood)? :shock:

A Core i7 CPU gets very hot (even without OC), so that's why I bought a CPU cooler..
And no, I'm not buying 2 CPU coolers :P
It's the Scythe Mugen 2 (so the follow-up of the older Scythe Mugen :wink:)
Further, A GPU can NEVER bottleneck a CPU (unless you're gaming high-end, which I am not)..


Besides, the HD4770 is almost as good as (sometimes even better than) the HD4850. The benchmarks prove my point.

Uhhh... Totally depends on your GPU, you don't need to play a very modern game if you put a 10 year old chip (doesn't even need to be that old, my old rig was not capable of using hardly any of its gaming-power thanks to the amazing Radeon 9200 I had chosen as its GPU) in there, but whatever. Still think a HD4870 or GTX295 (or whatever it's called) would have been nicer but it's your money and your choice :wink:.
