Default Spec me some sweet PC components.

I'm looking into replacing my PC which self-imolated itself a while back.

My buget is between 600 - 800 and I'll be obviously building it myself to maximise the performance for the price paid (So no buy a Dell/HP/Advent shit please) All of the listed parts are up for change.

I'm pretty much settled on the graphics cards:
XFX HD 5830 1GB DDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Display Port Out PCI-E Graphics Card With Aliens vs Predators DX11 Game
or
XFX 5850 1GB DDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Display Port Out PCI-E Graphics Card +40 each
or
Gigabyte GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5 OC Edition Dual DVI HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card +35 each

The RAM:
OCZ 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 2000MHz Gold Memory Kit CL10(10-10-10-30) 1.65V

The Chip:
Intel Core i5 processor 655K 3.20GHZ Socket 1156 4MB cache Retail Box Processor With Unreal Tournament 3 Download Voucher
or
Intel i5 760 2.8GHz Socket 1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor

Not sure if I want speed or cache here.

The PSU:
Antec TruePower Quattro 850W Modular PSU - 2x 8pin PCI-E 2x 6pin PCI-E 4x 12V Rails 80PLUS Energy Efficiency
or
Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000W Modular PSU

The Board
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 P55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

Current sub total: 828.79 ex VAT

Not sure on the motherboard yet which is of course the most important part save maybe the PSU.

It needs two PCI-e (with a spacer) so I can fit two Graphics cards with 1 card slot heat sinks.

And a few extra PCI's below that would be good.

I would also like 6 Dimm Slots if possible but I'm yet to find a good motherboard with more than 4.

I looked for a while for 6 DIMM slots but there always seemed to be a trade-off between lots of RAM and the rest of the board. I may have been an idiot and missed the perfect board though. I settled on 4 cos that gave me 8GB of RAM which tbh is plenty. By time I'll need more than 8GB to play games etc I'll be certainly on my next machine.

Out of touch with processors but that PSU looks beefed ffs, and modular is a good choice, no more stuffing unused cables under the DVD drive

You don't need a 1Kw PSU for a start.

If you want 6 DIMM slots then you are going to need a X58 based motherboard.

I can only buy awesome ram in 2 and 3 stick bundles though. 2 is more expensive per stick.

If I have 6 slots I can put one in each bus rather than filling 1 and having one half empty.

It also gives me a lot of upgrade potential. I plan on keeping this one for another 4 - 5 years until it ignites.

I'd rather have too much than too little.

Remember I maybe changing the card/add more (if the board allows this) down the line.

I'm trying to future proof and protect my investment.

Beefed PSU's are a good start.

I've never been keen on nVidia. Convince me with some affordable cards that are superior to the HD5830's I've speced and I'm all ears.

Yes but 1000W is too future proofed ffs.

You can get something like this and that would still be overkill, and save you 50.

I'm buying two. They draw plenty and I'm not completely confident in our electrical system at home.

Is the current maximum 2GB per stick? 8GB is a LOT of RAM and considering it's a gaming machine. By time you need more than 8GB to play games, I'd imagine your CPU will be way out of date anyway Plus if they make 4GB sticks in the future that's 16GB of RAM
