Default Views on this complete system?

Decided to bite the bullet and go with a i7 over the Phenom II 965 because I feel It'll be a better purchase for the long term, and will complent my 5870, allowing it to perform without any risk of bottlenecking, and the system in general.

Complete System
  • i7 920 - (Pre-overclocked to 3.8ghz)
  • Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Intel X58
  • Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel
  • 1 x ATI Radeon HD 5870
  • Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 CPU Cooler
  • Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM
  • Corsair TX 650W ATX SLi Compliant Power Supply
  • LG GH22NS40 22x DVD±RW SATA Dual Layer ReWriter (Black)
  • Antec 902 'Gaming' Case
  • BenQ G2420HDB 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor
  • Logitech MX518 Mouse
  • Saitek Eclipse 2 Keyboard
  • Creative Soundblast X-fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card
  • Goldring DR-150 Stereo Headphones
  • Logitech Desktop Microphone
Views on this build? This is all falling under the budget of £1650/£1700.

Very close, it's the 'Ultima Vanquish', usually it would have a 4 series HD card, a CM 335 but replaced those with the hd 5870 and Antec 902.

I am yet to find anything that can come close in price.. and the reviews/feedback is fantastic regarding OcUk.

..

I am estatic at the possibilities of this setup above.

..

This was the spec of my Macintosh Computer I had before the netbook. (Forgive my the heathen gods of PC-Old)

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz processor.
Some unknown intel board
3 gigs of some type of DDR RAM. (Came with 1 gig at first)
ATI HD 2600 Pro
Integrated audio.
320gb SATA HDD.

Nice system.

I'm at my wits end deciding on whether to go for a 965 or I7.

Can I ask where you are buying this?

If I was to find any fault with your system I would point to the hard disk (capacity and just having one)...that is all.

Other than that I don't expect you to be on the forums as much when you've got that running lol

Anyway I still want to know where you're getting it if you're open to discuss the matter

I've spoken to OcUk a couple of times over the past few days regarding a couple of queries. Fantastic Pre-sales Customer Support for the first part.

When I asked regarding the 5870 they said that if the Sapphire ATI HD 5870 is out of stock when they are building the system, they will ask me if I want to 'upgrade' to a different brand's 5870 such as XFX and then, as that costs £15 more, I will pay £15 more, but in turn, they will charge nothing for shipping, which is fantastic.

Sounds good.

I'll have to fetch myself a quote later on.

Cheers Skate.

Ordered the PC today.

I was suprised to learn as well that, they would fit the Sound Card too, which was fanastic and overall it was £20 less than the quote I got online. Awesome

Should be here by Wednesday!... Cant wait! =D

Looks good to me, but I would go with a Logitech G5 and a headset, personally.

I used a MX518 for years and now use the G5. tbh theres only one reason to buy the G5 over the MX518 and its the weight. Being able to adjust the weight of the G5. I like it real heavy. never had a mouse that can be adjusted and thought it would be a bit of a anal feature but it dose feel alot better to push around. A part from that they are both excelent mic.

Nice system and I also rate OcUK I buy all my kit from them and Im on my second PC for myself and have built 3 for other people never had any duff kit or and faults after all the kit I bought. My brother is using my first PC from them and its 3 years old never missed a beat.
