Hi fella's. It's great to be back after an 8 year absence.
Im currently looking to renew my hardware (NF7-S on her last legs) and im totally out of the loop since the socketA/478 days so I thought I'd give you guys a shout.
Im looking for a mid price range - deffo Intel, having a budget of £400 max to find the Best Bang for Buck (board/cpu/ram/graphics - bundle) with good performance/stability/Overclocker. Generally I only use a main/primary sata drive and a second sata drive for storage/back-up so I dont have to go with a board with endless raid capabilties.
Here's what ive found based on my limited browsing time and lack of knowledge on the new
systems so im sure you guys can come up with more bang per buck:
(all retail/brand new prices)
Gigabyte GA-P55-US3L Intel P55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard £80
Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz Socket LGA1156 8MB L3 £140
Zalman CNPS10X Flex CPU Cooler £30
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 MHz Platinum 4GB (2x2) 1.65V 9-9-9-24 £90
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4670 512MB GDDR3 £55
Total cost £395
What's your thoughts fella's?
