I loved Hot Fuzz, however some people I know just didnt get the humour.


Loved? Does that mean it's out already or something or was that just a typing error?

I would highly recommend it, it's one of (if not the best) movie right now in my opinion. Next one I'm waiting for is Hot Fuzz.
Topic: 8800GTS Bottleneck?   Go to last post

I'm going to buy a new computer in the near future hopefully and I was just wondering if an AMD X2 3800+ (probably overclocked) would bottleneck an 8800GTS 320MB card in the machine a well. Also, this should be in the power supply topic I know but it'll save a thread, I was also thinking about buying an Antec 430W NeoHE Power Supply. The minimum wattage is 400W for the 8800GTS, that's pretty close, do you think it would be fine?

My suggestion would be:

(prices are in Canadian dollars, I'll convert them into Euro's when I'm done)

CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 = 229.99
Motherboard - MSI P965 Platinum = 170.84
Memory - Kingston ValueRAM DDR2-667 2GB Kit (since you like Kingston) = 179.99
Hard Drive - Western Digital (WD2500KS) Caviar 250GB = 89.99
Power Supply - OCZ GameXStream 600 Watt = 129.99
Video Card = Sapphire ATI Radeon X1950 XT = 279.99

Total = 1080.79 CAD which is equal to 700.137 Euros

This setup obviously isn't the absolute best machine you can buy in your budget obviously but it should give you alot of bang for your buck.

No problem..I would personally go for the ASUS P5N-E. It has SLI for future upgradeability down the road along with processor support clocked up to 1333Mhz. It's on an Nvidia 650i chipset which is just a watered-down version of the 680i. It's arguably the best gaming motherboard in that price range, go check it out.

Well, if you can afford that, that's awesome but I really do think you could cut down on a couple things and lose little to no performance at all. Like ice has said I think you should also go with the E6600 for the same reasons, and since your buying from Canada Computers I would recommended this memory from OCZ

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=011680&cid=RAM.475

It's still as fast, 2GB, good quality with OCZ and it's a bit cheaper. Also, if you've read the stickied power supply thread in the power supply section, I don't think your going to need 850W to power your beast, I would go with Corsair's 620W or OCZ's GameXStream 600W; both have enough wattage 12V rail ratings and will suffice more then enough.

The rest of the components look great. Again, I'm just trying to help you save a bit of money buy not buying somewhat "unneccesarily"
expensive components. Looks like it's going to be one heck of a rig.
