Hello all,

After my first post here I got some advice for building a system that was meant primarily for gaming and some multi-tasking with light and medium to heavy programs. Basicly I want a system that's able to do it all.

For the parts I'm purchasing it looks like this. The rest of the parts I have at home in my current computer and they will carry over for now and be replaced at some point later in time.

CPU: Intel Core i7-920
CPU Cooler Thermaltake Ultra-120 eXtreme 1366 RT
Memory: OCZ Platinum Tripple channel - 1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 ) - (3 x 2 GB) (CL7)
Mainboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 iX58
Harddrive: Seagate Baracuda 7200.12 - 32 mb cache(1 TB)
PSU: ZALMAN ZM850-HP
Case: Cooler Master - Storm Sniper

The cost of these parts (+ some gaming peripherals) comes down to about 1000 euro. So I'm going to call that my budget.

From all of you experts I'd really like feedback and tips (anything is welcome!). Basicly I'd like you to go "You idiot, what did you do that for!?". Thanks in advance for anything you send in and if you have any questions, feel free to ask them!

1000e for that?

you could get a whole i7 build for 1000e.

So, drop the Zalman PSU for a Corsair 850TX, for the mobo, you probably don't need the deluxe V2, so get a P6T if you have an Nvidia card or plan on buying one in the future, or the P6T SE if you have an ATi card.

Thanks for the reaction helloworld_98.

Could you explain to me why I don't need the deluxe V2 and why the Corsair 850TX is better?

Thanks!

the Corsair doesn't cost as much and is higher quality.

the deluxe doesn't really have any advantages over the P6T, except you might get an extra 50MHz or something small like that out of an overclock because of the better NB and SB heatsinks.
