    Yeah, but I'm afraid they'll be a little bit too expensive :-(
    I'll probably wait anyway....

    I personally will down the Motherboard to GA-P35-DS3P (-€17)
    Down RAM to OCZ Technology 2x1GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Platinum OCZ2P800R22GK (-€20)

    Then, get E8400 coming out this month. It suppost to be at same price at E6750 (€163)

    So, you will get overall better performance with paying €20 more.

    Will wait and check out the prices.
    I'll probably stay with what I have and just add little bit to the total amount...
    I just keep doing it :)
    And the prices on this website are going up on some parts instead going down!!
    For instance case I fall in love with went up over €30....
    and graphics price went up as well...

    Good build. GFX is overkill for that processor. Down it to a HD38*0 and get a E6750 or so.

    OK. I thing I go with E8400. It's about €180.
    What do you think now about the build now? All what's in first post except CPU.

    Get everything you have in that list off www.komplett.ie.

    I checked prices on komplett before and they seem to be more expensive then dabs...
    Difference on mobo is €17.
    Some stuff is slightly cheper then dabs as well, but not too much.
    If you combine all together the price probably would be similar on both (I'm too lazy to do that thought...)
    Also komplett don't have the case I wan't... :)

    Perfect! Everything evens out. No overkill or bottlenecking anywhere :)

    Oh, I never knew that. I did research about 6 months ago as I needed parts but the prices might have changed since then.
