    im building a rig for my cousin for a gaming pc but not over the top i was considering a e5200 as its cheap and using the extra money spare on a good graphics card i've heard these get 2 3.75 ghz pretty easy was just wondering if i got a 4890 wid one of these and 4gb ram i should be able to run latest games pretty well or will the cpu start to bottle neck i will be OCing it
  6. hey peepz i run a q9650 in a HAF 932 case and got it oc'd to 4ghz on a black ops mobo runs pretty cool but wanna make this pig squel so to speak and dont think my Thermalrite TRUE is gonna hold out much longer even with 2 fans strapped to it in push pull air flow config was thinkin Liquid cooling or a hybrid would be logical next step just wanna know wats the best performing kit out there not to fussed on cost but lets not get crazy even tho the old visa will probably come out and my missus will throw me out with my computer under arm again :) all opinions will be greatly appreciated

  9. ok to start, buildin new comp for my cousin he purchased parts and i put together was just wodering cause the idiot bought a PSU without modular cables ie cant only install the ones you need, iwas wondering if its perfectly acceptable to cut off the ones not being used and just put abit of electrical tape around the ends because he has a relatively small case and even tying them up still takes up abit of room
