View Full Version : help with new system
this the system that i am going to build. would yu guys offer any suggestions to the componets
AMD 2500+ Barton Mobile
Western Digital WD800JB 80gb HD
Lite-on 48/24/48/16 CDRW/DVD Combo
Nvidia 5900xt 128mb (Chaintech)
OCZ Platinum PC3200 512mb(256mbx2)
any help would be appreciatied!
P.S. My budjet is around $800
I'd say take out the Nvidia and stick in a Sapphire 9800 Pro OEM(@ Newegg). Much better performer IMHO and only $210ish.
Make sure to get a nice PSU (Antec PSU included with case? :D)
Also, I'm not a big fan of OCZ, check this (http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=284426) stuff out. 194ish for 1 GB of RAM that can easily do 200 FSB w/ nice timings. Just my $0.02

Check out the classifieds around here as well, someone sold a 3000+ for $75 a few days ago, you can get some stuff for amazing prices.
