    Re: crysis pc build need help

    I'd be looking at

    Intel Q6600 + decent HSF (scythe ninja, thermalright 120 extreme etc...) - £190
    2 - 4gb of PC6400 RAM (scan today only has corsair xms2 for £37 per 2gb)
    Abit IP-35 or the Pro if you require some extra little features - £80 or £120
    Geforce 8800GT - £170
    Antec P182 - £80
    Corsair 520w HX - £65
    500GB Western Digital AAKS - £60
    Dvd Writer - £20

    With 4GB of RAM and the IP-35pro you're looking at around £785 and a system which should overclock nicely to around 3.4GHz.

    You could get an 8800GTX or Ultra with the extra money but i'm not sure it's worth it.

    If the new 8800GTS (with g92 chip) isn't just a fairy story I would imagine that would be the GPU to have.

    My mate's pc which is essentially the same as "my system" runs it at 1680 x 1050 with medium settings and never seems to go below 30fps. It looks pretty good anyway. I find it such a boring game though, cod4 ftw!!

    500 GB Samsung HD501LJ Spinpoint T166 Its about £63 and is faster.

    Look at the artic cooling freezer 7 pro for the cpu cooler. Its about £17 is supposidly excellent.

    £791.11 not inc delivery but free delivery with scan

    is the graphics card a wise choice it seems really good and the price tag is nice what you guys think so far of the spec?

    what you think needs changing i have a budget of 950 what could i make better ect i may get another monitor 22inch 150 quid so that leaves me pretty much done

    shall i change the ram and HDD??
    is 4g that worth it is it better getting a nice 2gb set which is better ?

    you think this is a good system to keep me happy and my gaming life at uni good for a few years

    and also ive noticed the GT is pcie2.0 is the mobo i have selected 2.0 also if not what mobo would you suggest thats 2.0

    Judging by those figures its going to leave the GT's as well as the old GTS's well behind. Looks like even the GTX may struggle to keep up with it.

    Roll on December 3rd.

    Going to be around $250-300 so should drop in here now at around £200-220.

    Just a thought......do you think the lack of 8800GT's is anything to do with the fact that this new GTS is on its way and the priorites for nVidia are lying with that? I dunno but its possible.

    if this is true is it worth picking up 1 of these its only a few weeks and i can wait will the new GTS be a much bigger difference and with a 200 - 250 price tag .. well im game

    Re: crysis pc build need help

    Is that 2 sets of that OCZ ram? If not its way over priced.

    The GTS would be worth waiting for if the speculations are correct.

    Re: crysis pc build need help

    yeah give it a month for the graphics card. There's some new ones coming out soon.

    P5K deluxe is nice, and 4gb OCZ ram too. Make sure you get Vista Premium 64 so you can use all 4gb of ram, and Crysis runs better with 64bit.

    The Arctic cooler 7 for about £15 is brilliant. Still one of the best around.

    Re: crysis pc build need help

    freezer is good but noisey in the P182 and the bigger towers (and the thermalright ultima 90) are quieter and overclock better.

    Not really. I was deciding between the T166 and the AAKS a few weeks ago and ended up going for the T166. But that's only because the T166 is cheaper, quieter and fast enough for storage use.

    Re: crysis pc build need help

    Do you really need 500Gb of storage?

    I'm looking at getting the Raptor X just for over all performance. I'm not really worried about storage. I can add more in the future and use the X as a sytem drive.
