I am looking to get a new PC and decided to get Quad Core and 4GB of RAM. PB Tech had a system with these and you can find it here. Would be happy to hear your thoughts on this system
redjet: What's the PC mainly going to be used for? Gaming, video editing, etc...
redjet:but doesn't come with an OS. What OS were you planning to install?
EDIT: I've also noticed it has no monitor!
redjet: Are you that concerned about noise if it is to be used as a HTPC? If so a silent 8600GT would be a better bet than the 9600GT. - espeically if it's not going to be used for serious gaming.
You also might want to look at a Zalman ZM460B-APS Continuous 460W Power Supply as they are very quiet and perform well.
The CPU is a quarter of the cost of the machine so unless you really think you'll use 4 cores (e.g. heaps of video editing, etc) I'd suggest dropping back to a E8400.
My advice would be to review all the components via New Egg then use the PC builder at Ascent to customise and then get them to build your PC (assuming you don't want to build it yourself that is). I'm always a bit weary of these pre-packaged deals as some PC stores can tend to sneak in components of average quality and/or performance. For example, the GA-P35-DS3L motherboard has actually been replaced by a newer energy saving model called the GA-EP35-DS3L.
Simonm: I would recommend holding on for a few weeks if you want a quad. New models are comming with new pricing :)
