    Complete system

    Any issues, ripoffs regarding this system?

    and


    Not too sure about the monitor as it's not my speciality at all. I can probably stretch to an e6400, though availability is lacking somewhat, as I actually planned this system with a more expensive monitor/sound card so this is actually under budget.

    Cheers Olie

    apart from that ebuyer are likely to go broke? not that I can see

    If it is under budget - consider getting something like an x1900 to make the most of the available processing power (as I assume you are going to overclock it?)

    I will overclock it but I don't have any experience, (only oc'd gfx card before), so I won't be pushing it to the extremes, which is why I was thinking the e6400 as it seems to have better value at stock speeds.

    Good idea about the card as I just checked an article on anandtech and they seem to like the 1900 gt following the price drop which I was not aware of untill now.

    If you need an e6400 check out www.coolestpc.co.uk, I got my e6400 today, ordered Tuesday
    They have e6600 and e6300 too in stock, but the 6400 offered best value for my wallet!

    make sure the 1900gt fits in that case.

    Why wouldn't it? It's a normal length single slot card

    Swapped out the monitor for a HannsG 19" w/s and the mobo for a Gigabyte S3 which gives me just about enough room for an e6400 and a x1900gt.

    The S3 might not overclock so well, but the e6400 at stock is a fair bit better at stock and I won't be overclocking to extremes anyway.

    The air duct on the case is removeable so if it gets in the way I will take it out and maybe get a £5 80mm fan to replace it.
