Default Good Deal ?

alright guys , last time i posted i was thinking about my own build then a few other things came up but am now in a position where i can start to build. I have been starting off looking at cases and motherboards , the case i liked the look of is this chieftec 1 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159031 . I also found a bundle deal which is this - Intel Core 2 Quad Bundle Deal Including Quad Core Q8200 Retail Box Processor and Asus P5Q SE2 Motherboard. would this be a good bundle and case to purchase ?

Thanks.

Cool case. Chieftec has been in the game for years and makes a very nice case.

The bundle deal sounds nice. The Asus P5Q is a good motherboard for the Intel quads as it is really good at overclocking them things. They are also very reliable.

Have you got a link to the bundle?

EDIT: No matter, found it (didn't paste it properly earlier, oops!) http://www.ebuyer.com/product/167046

Agreed with the above, that does look like a good bundle, and I've never run into any trouble with Asus boards in the past. Haven't got any experience with that model but Chieftec's a known make and I certainly don't doubt that it does what it says on the tin!

Well, you could always search for something a bit cheaper or a bit better and you might find something more suited to your needs I guess, but you certainly wouldn't go wrong with that CPU / mobo
