Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus P8Z68-V LX Motherboard (Socket 1155, DDR3, 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16, ATX, LucidLogix Virtu) (Personal Computers)I do intensive photographic manipulation ie photoshop CS5 extended,With various third party plugins ,Silver efex pro,Viveza,and various others as needed.

No Problem,all the items were purchased fom Amazon and delivered to me in SW France all items were perfect.
the case ANTEC 300 well made easy acces comes with one cooling fan.
the mother board ASUS P8Z68-Vlx,this board is very well speced,can be over clocked but i dont need to.
the cpu INTELi 3 2120 3.30 GHZ3 MB Cache SOCKET 1155,says its a 4core but its actually a 2 core ,its very fast so no problem.
the ram CORSAIR CMZ GX3M4A 1600 16 GIG 1600 MHZ DDR3 comes in 4 sticks ,so pleased i got 16 GB.
the hard drive SEAGATE ST 31000542 3.5 BARRACUDA ITB 7200 SATA 32 MB buffer ,make sure you get 7200 RPM
the power supply OCZ 500 WT this model has seperate sockets for all relevant feeds ,come with plenty of cables,DONT GET A CHEAP SUPPLY
the dvd recorder player SONYA-D-72618 does the job look around you might be able to get one that includes Blue Ray.
The cost was around £400 but its a top quality bit of kit,assembly is comparativley easy but if concerned allways get advice,ime running windows 7 home prem 64 bit you must use a 64 bit prog if you want to take full advantage of the 16 gb of ram,my machine has been running 3 months no problems ,.
You will not need any extra cooling fans ,i do hope this has been of help to you and good luck.Dave
