    Build for a friend



    How does this look?

    Any glaring problems?

    Recommend me a better one if you like

    He's in Holland so around €600 would be great

    I wouldn't buy the palit card.. dodgy fan. Other brands should be around the same price.

    I would get an E5200 instead of the E7*** it's £30 and essentially has the same performance and overclocking potential.

    Enermax PRO82+ 525W is £57 at the moment, worth the extra £10 I would say.

    AAKS instead of AAJS if you can.

    Biostar P45 rather than the Asus mainly due to it's poor layout. They were £78 on today only yesterday. Are you buying it from scan or just speccing it on there?

    Re: Build for a friend

    Just as its name--Elite 330, it is presented to those people who would like to start holding high-quality products in their arm.

    Undoubtedly, it would be pity for you to miss it.
    oh dear. but seriously. whats changed in the V2? (i have the V1)

    Re: Build for a friend

    Wouldn't it be cheaper and more convenient to get the components in Holland especially with the weak pound at the moment?? Returns would be easier too!!
