hi, i am in the process of getting a new pc which i will be building and wanted to know what other people think of it and if i have missed anything.

also i didnt know which speakers to choose so if anyone can help that would be great.

cpu = intel e6600
mobo = gigabyte ga-965p-s3
ram = 2gb geil ddr2 800mhz
video = msi 8800 768mb
speakers creative/logitech 7.1/5.1 or the z-5500
dvd drives = lite on LH 18A1P
hard drive = 750GB seagate sata 2
display = viewsonic 2235wm
case = coolermaster stacker 831
P/S = tough power 750W
K/B = logitech G15 and Mouse G5 logitech
sound card = x-fi extreme gamer creative.

Have you got a graphics card?

Looks ok to me, including your graphics 8800. The speakers you have chosen also should do the job. The DVD drive(s) .. I would prefer the LG GSA-4163B.

not a sausage wrong with that ,will run merrily on for ages without an upgrade needed

the spec looks good to me,with everything recognisable as top drawer quality.

Not quite the same point as Technotiger, but maybe a second optical drive, for straight copy to copy,(or as a spare).

As for speakers, if you want a large set with plenty base. click here

Or if you can afford it the 5500 set would be hard to beat.

aye, i was going to get two of the dvd drives.

the other thing i am not sure about is the monitor. i mean i do like the viewsonic but was wondering if anyone knew a better one that doesnt have speakers on it.

The monitor you have shown looks fine. You don't have/need to connect the audio cord.

PS you don't happen to be in the County of Down, do you?
