Build new pc

Can anyone tell me if this is a good deal for all around pc - Newegg.com Shopping Cart

or this bundle - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

decided to build myself and get a lot more for my dollar, but undecided about AMD vs Intel

one more - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

I know this is very hard for me to decide what to do - so any help is appreciated.

not a big gamer, but do a lot of video rendering and such so maybe a different case is better, just want a nice quiet with decent air flow. thanks again

t41,
The first cart is showing empty. I like the second but that's because it's very close to my current system and I just can't say enough about it ! lol. The Intel system is banging as well but I'm not keen on Seagate and would go with WD for sure or even a Hitachi Desk or Samsung Spinner in lieu. My gut tells me you may enjoy the AMD for it's graphics better? Lastly if you plan to OC at all then maybe look to go with the sealed water H70 from Corsair do it up with a fan controller and call it a day ! Jimmy is for sure a top 10 pick of all time.

Hello there, both PCs are ok, but let's see something.

Tell me your exact budget and i'll see what i can do for you.. i'm guessing you want the best price/performance relation, am i right?

In my opinion, the intel system is the better performer. However, I may choose some different parts. Don't go with the Seagate 7200,11, if you like Seagate go for the 7200.12 and unless you really need it, get 1 good video card not 2. Take the savings and get an SSD. Also, make sure that CPU cooler will fit into the Storm Scout.

OK my budget is around 1200 -1300 us dollars - I also like Hitachi or WD - but those particular packages came with seagate. had 3 external seagate HD crash within last 2 weeks lost over 2 TB of music.
I made my own up, but am not sure if everything is compatible. Have one AMD and one Intel also not sure if video card is that good. Need a tuner card as well but forgot to add it in for editing videos from vcr and such,

Thanks again for help

i have attached items in cart.
P.S. I like this case a lot also - http://www.apevia.com/productsInfo.a...=X-JUPITERS-BK

If you like large cases and good wiring, check out this case and read the comments.

I too like the AMD option but, I would spend the extra 40 dollars and go ahead and get the 6 core (1090T) processor (Which is what I run and it is great!). I would add more RAM as well...

Here is my final pick I believe. Please have a quick look to let me know if looks OK. Pretty competent or should I say confident I can do this, just not sure if missing something special as in chords and such.
Thanks again for your help.

Looks good to me. I believe the case comes with a 4/8 pin extension cable. I am sure you will want to run the 24 pin power cable behind the MB. With it being a large case it might be advisable to buy an extension cable for that too. I always do, but rarely need them. I figure better safe than sorry.

Maybe I'm just blind, but I think you forgot an optical drive.

Or, do you have an old DVD/CD-RW drive you were going to re-use?

By the way, were you planning to run on a RAID 0 setup? I thought you might be, since you're buying two identical HDD's. Supposedly, Windows 7 has a pretty kickass built-in software-based RAID 0 facility.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
