Hi y'all, as the title suggests im getting me a new PC, overall im quite stoked about it. details follow
p4 2.6 ghz, 800 fsb 512 cache with Hyper Threading
ASUS p4c800 deluxe I875 motherboard
2x 512 corsair 3200 matched ddr
GeforceFx A310 256mb FX5600
2x 80gig Seagate SATA HD
DVD burner Pioneer DVR-A06P
LG Combo Drive CDRW and DVD reader
Hercules 7.1 Game theater XP
Logitech Z640 5.1 Speakers
19" Mitsibishi monitor 1998FD
XaserII case with hardcano or whatever it is
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
*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
and a few other bits and pieces all for $840
Should be better than my crusty ol celeron 466 i reckon!
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.
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.
