Re: PC dead... anyone bought a new one recently?
Greg I too got mine from msy. Ill list what i got and roughly what it cost.
Gigabyte 7n400 pro 2 400fsb - Socket A, Firewire, Raid, USB, SATA all the bells and whistles not bad for a g/b board there not my favorite.
Amd Athlon Barton 2800+
Leadtek Winfast 5900xt 3D card these babies rock and are not to expensive $300
Volcano 12 cpu cooler the 2800+ seem to run around 55 - 60 deg to hot for me so this thing dropped cpu temps 15 deg.
Case well lets just say there cheap but get a decent power supply especially if your getting a fairly decent graphics card because the Yum cha ones just dont cut it. And your forever troubleshooting only to find out your power suplly is a POS.
Mate im sure you have done this many of times, but if you need a hand I'm quiet able to help you out with whats good and whats not. MSY is defianatly the place to go for price. There customer service is ok but not the best plus there really hard to understand.
I paid around $750 for all that. I used my current HDD but im thinking of getting two 120 gig SATA drives and running them off the raid controller in striping mode.
The cpu cooler was an additional $50 aswell.
Give me a bell mate im sure you have my number. I can even give you a hand with this if you like. Im also thinking of building another very shortly and using your favorite os on it Linux ( I have something planned :). All i have to do is get some more cash
