few things id like to comment on.
the Q6600 its retail so it comes with heat sink and fan yes (jus double checking) so is that any good i mean i no the pushpins are an awful design but this will not be used for anything great def not overclocking so is the heatsink good enough for everyday use ?
ok the RAM OCZ are a fair trusted make not the best but not the worse and a lifetime warranty so ....... also not to worried bout the timings as i said its a budget build ish ...
the hardrive im not too keen on maxtor myself i am a western digital man but i was given a pretty tigh budget on this,
DVD RW drive not too sure on that brand and i am aware that for £2 maybe £3 more i could prob get LG or something like that so i may also change that.
now the hardrive and DVD RW isnt my biggest worry,
my main concern is the power supply included with the case.
ive heard power supplies included with cases usually arent branded and possibly not that great.
this may be down to opinions but ive used cheap power supplies on a few occasions and not once had a problem but i hear people all the time saying NEVER buy cheap or 1 that comes with a £25 case as the case is prob like £15 so that is a cheap PSU.
anyways apologies for long post what do you think ?
Edit. ive also got this horrible feeling im missing something ill prob buy a case fan or 2 maybe a card reader and
SATA cable just incase but am i missing something else ?
obviously he has a monitor im putting XP on it but is there anything else missing ?
