Re: New PC, Yay for me.

I just got my computer parts yesterday. Not as good as yours 6pac but none the less i was over due for it.

Here it is:
*Gigabyte mother board, dual bios, 6ch, titan spec.
*80gig Western Digital hdd
*512mb ram
*52x32x52 Liteon burner
*GeForce 4 mx440 128mb ddr 8x AGP with tv and dvi input
*optical mouse (desperately needed that)*throws old ball mouse out window*
*Intel Celeron 2.4g
*Aopen case
and a few other bits and pieces all for $840

Should be better than my crusty ol celeron 466 i reckon!

Ahhh the Geek corner :) I am getting a new system early next year, but for now I needed a "slight" upgrade (last week):

AMD 2600+
ASUS A7V8X-X (has to be fast - "V8" in the model name)
256Mb Kingston RAM
128Mb GeForce FX5200
Oh, and an optical mouse... Oh so smooth...

Pretty much all budget parts and it still flies. Did a dyno run (benchmarking) and was faster than a PIV 2.8GHz in some areas. Runs on par with about a PIV 2.4GHz.

Re: New PC, Yay for me.

If I had the cash to get P42.4 over celeron2.4 I would. AFAIK the only difference there is between the 2 is the bus speed. Celeron runs at 400mhz and P4 runs at 533mhz => Pentium will make a bigger difference in speed for things like Autocad rendering and stuff that requires high regeneration. I'm using Autocad but have no need of using rendering facilities on the program, so I opted going for the cheaper. If I need the cpu to be that bit quicker I reckon I'll up the ram before I up the processor.

Sorry for the rant.

Re: New PC, Yay for me.

I'm looken at getting/building a new pc soon.
Can one of you folks possibly give a run down of all of the parts that i will need (ie cpu, motherboard, graphics card, sound card... etc) with the respective prices if possible.
I'm looken to spend between $800 to $1300. I'll mainly be using it for gaming/internet, uni work and such. cheers.
