Good Choice? New setup

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I thought it was time for an update - after much talking and considering I came to the following


Any tips quality/price or compatibility otherwise? European shops (or those that deliver to europe) with awesome prices?

I'll be using my old keyboard/mouse/screen and secondary hard drive.


Goal: Great game pc, yet don't waste cash on stuff that's hardly an improvement.


I noticed almost no webshops at all allow for direct payment from say, Visa. Bit annoying.

Hoping for some great FPS experience :D

Seems like a good setup, I don't see what won't work :) .
If I may suggest something, save €100 and get the E6400, you'll hardly notice the 270Mhz difference and the 2Mb extra L2 cache don't give such a performance boots.
Another suggestion is getting and AMD, they are still great gaming CPUs :) .

About shops, check http://www.preistrend.de/ for the cheapest price in Germany (can hardly be cheaper, they only have 16% btw compared to the 21% in Belgium, but be quick, it goes to 18% in 2007).
The tweakers.net pricewatch (https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/) is great for finding cheap shops in Holland (19% vs 21% :D ).

Last but not least, the cheapest shops in Belgium, http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ and https://www.tones.be/particulier

P.s. get the HDD in Belgium (you're from belgium, right ?), if it breaks you'll save time and money.
