    No OS required.
    2 TFT's - 17" min
    Nvidia 8800GTS 320.
    Pref abit mobo
    All SATA drives (including optical)
    2GB RAM max.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Less the carriage as it will be free if you get to 25 posts on here you will be pretty much on budget.
    17" monitors will get you under budget.

    Re: New Build advice...

    looks great just that hard drive.

    Everyone has their preference but i've got 2 dead hitachi's in my draw and one newish one which is behaving itself but I have trust issues with them

    I forgot to add a HSF as well
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=296802

    I've used this in two pc's and its amazing for cooling and silence.

    The only noise you will hear in that pc is the 8800 which will be a gentle hum.
    ..and perhaps some hard drive noise with the hitachi

    Noise wise the AAKS western digital is totally silent and that's why i'm recomending.

    Re: New Build advice...

    Got a P180 atm and love the case and I have 2 Hitachis in there as well and these have lasted me years - myself, had issues with WD drives a few times - horses for courses!

    As the drives are on rubber - all good - like the hsf!
