so I've decided its finally time to upgrade my good old comp (athlon64 3000+, 2gig Ram, 6600GT) or more like ... replace it since I can't really re-use anything of my old comp except my HDD's

But ... I've been kinda out of the loop for a while when it comes to hardware stuff so I could need some advice if the stuff is halfway decent and goes together well and whatnot

4096 MB, CL4 4-4-12, 2, PC2 6400

Total:€ 1.153,70*
Note: I'm going for an AMD cpu because I want to use Hybrid SLI and its only available on chipsets for AMD cpu's right now (750a SLI and 780a SLI)
So suggestion an Intel CPU is pointless
Saving power = saving money ... :)

I'm planning to use that thing for at least 2 years if not even 3 btw


so ... suggestions? Comments?

Well you get more power with this, and pay less for power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004

for the HDD im not sure about the Seagate since I heard it is manufactured in China and some products go out well and some **** up, I say go for the Western Digital or Samsung. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073

The video card, well im not sure what the PC is for but I do think the HD 4850 will give better performance for about the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131118

And I think MSI isn't a good company, go for Gigabyte or Asus.

I didn't understand which case you are about to buy.

Hey, that case is cool.

Did you already received your system?

Those AMD Phenom's are really being sold like a animal.
