Personally, I'd spend a little less on the power-supply and get more memory, and 64-bit windows...

But I just bought a mac-pro instead :p

Definately not what I would go for but I guess thats just personal preference.


and experience...


nah just kidding.But the art in building computers is that you make it as powerful as you can for as low price as you can... not go around buy a SHIT coolermaster PSU and case so you can glare at your pc and enjoy how shiny and awesome it is. sure make it nice, but nice and high quality.

stay away from coolermaster, its like the plastic of metals.

and what the hell? are you seriously buying Home edition XPs for a 1 grand rig?

I've put coolermaster PSUs in two computers I have built and not had a problem with either. Both have been working for well over a year and been put under strenuous use. Not once have they failed. Just thought I would mention that so you get both sides of a story.

I was told (after buying XP Home) that it doesn't have multithreading (or dual core, I forget) support. I haven't gotten around to fixing my macbook's partition so that I can install it, so I don't know this for sure.

MONOLITH02, thing is that they produce way less power then they actually should. And the company's main aim is visual appearance, nothing deeper imo.

XP home does support dual core, I believe, but it won't make fantastic use of it. It doesn't support more than 2Gb RAM on any one program, and only 4Gb all together. If you're buying a quad-core system, and I assume, plan onusing it for heavy duty stuff like 3D, you want to make full use of it with lots of ram and 64 bit. I recently bought Vista home premium for my macbook, and ultimate for my new mac pro (ultimate is I think the only vista which supports two cpus, i.e. 2 quad-cores).

Is that from experience or what you have read?

Monolith, having a good experience with a certain PSU doesn't make it great.
I had a no-name 300w psu in my old PC and never a problem with it, does it make it great? No, it's crap, if I had a single problem it would probably burn the rest of the components too.

Read this:

And get yourself a Tier2 PSU


And factory overclocked vid card? Might be wrong but I was under the impression that is a waste of money as you can buy a non-overclocked card for less money and overclock it to the same speed yourself.

EDIT:
Oh btw, thanks for posting the ads from that site too :P

When did I ever say it was great? I never once said how good it was. I just offered my experience with it. Perhaps you should read my replies more closely before you make any comments of your own.

To reiterate myself, I have had two PSU's from coolermaster neither of them has given me a problem.

Please try and isolate part of the above sentence which indicates that I said they were 'great'.


"And factory overclocked vid card? Might be wrong but I was under the impression that is a waste of money as you can buy a non-overclocked card for less money and overclock it to the same speed yourself."

That is right. However factory overclocked cards are guaranteed to work at their respective overclocked speeds and if they don't you can return them under warantee. However if you overclock a GFX card yourself, and it doesn't work or you mess it up somehow then you would have voided the warranty and thus won't be able to get a replacement/refund.

Ok, sorry, I assumed, shouldn't have....
But for every piece of equipment on earth you'll find at least one guy that had no problems with it, but that doesn't mean anything, it can only make it worse if a person buys it knowing that he might have no problems with it (and yes, he might not).

And for the card, ok that might be a good reason, but just don't fuck it up so badly so you can't bring the herz or multiplier back down and you're good for warranty :P

But you can say the exact same thing the other way round. There's gauranteed to be some one who has bought the best psu on offer and had it break down, therefore they will then think "what a piece of shit" and warn people off of it. The more feedback someone gets the better, why just trust the two people that say something is bad.
