    Hi everyone,

    I am building a new system and I am deliberating over a couple of components.

    I was wondering whether to go for this Leadtek graphics card:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/138666
    or this Inno one:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/138551

    They are both 8800gts I am just wondering which one is better and what warranty I will get on each of them.

    Also, I am thinking of getting this cooler:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/105994
    but I am also thinking about this one:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/127437

    I may wish to do some overclocking so I am not sure which one I should get.

    Also, I am getting this case and PSU:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/141707
    However, I have been advised to possibly get this PSU but I am not sure:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/114945.

    I would just like some thoughts on these because once I have decided, I can then go ahead and buy the parts to build my new system.

    Thanks for any advice it is much appreciated.
    Gareth.

    I'd get the Leadtek card. I've never heard of that other brand, but Leadtek has a pretty good reputation. Plus it's 10 cheaper.

    As for CPU coolers, I'd choose the AC cooler. The Freezers are really good.

    That case comes with a decent PSU. Coolermaster makes good stuff. Technically the Corsair is a slightly better unit, but I don't think you'll be gaining THAT much by spending the money you don't have to.

    Thank you for your response.

    Just out of curiousity, what is better about the corsair PSU?

    I am only thinking about the Inno card as I know someone who has an 8800GT version of their card and they seem to like it but I was just wondering whether the 8800GTS is worth the extra £10 over the Leadtek version.

    Do you know what warranty I get on the Leadtek card? Is it ok for overclocking?
