What would be a decent MOBO and Processor combo for around 500 or less?
thanks OT CnP
ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE SOCKET 939 nForce 4 SLI ATX - AMD
Cooler Master ATX Mid Tower
Seagate Barracuda 300GB SATA II
Corsair XMS 1 GB(2x512mb) DDR 400(PC3200) Dual Channel
Thermal Take 430W power supply
How does this stuff look for a decent computer capable of some gaming?
Do i need to purchase a Windows XP or can i use an old recovery DVD from my previous computer?
Does it all work together ?
get a better power supply than that one. your video card is the key to gaming... any 3000+ AMD 64 and up has plenty of gaming power. you either need to buy XP or download/burn an image from somewhere, your recovery disc will not format/install a new pc.
thanks ill plan on purchasing XP
as far as the video card goes ill be using an Ati x300 if possible until i buy a 7800 GT(perhaps two)
def. get the opteron 165 and a dfi lanparty ultra- d best combo out there- dual core chip and can overclock to 2.8 (thats what im at and my chip stays at 22 degrees with the stock heatsink) and the preformance is great!!
heh i consider that about $95 more than it's worth.
same, but that still doesnt give anyone the right to pirate it.
don't like it, dont use it. use bsd instead.
just finished installing my old mobo and processor into my new case along with the new HD and Ram... im taking baby steps
