Okay guys Iv been doing a lot of research this past month and have decided to start building my new gaming computer. This will be the first computer system I have ever put together so I dont know to much about it and im a complete noob, however I have found many sites with step by step guildlines to build one. Heres what I have decided to get so far and stuff I need reommendations to get.
MoboASUS K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU, Model "K8V SE Deluxe" -RETAIL
CPU-AMD Athlon 64 3200+, 1MB L2 Cache, The Only 64-bit Windows Compatible Processor - Retail
Video card- not yet decided but I want to go with an ATi. Something around $200-$250
Sound card- Need help deciding
RAM- I want at least 1GB PC3200(DDR400). Help deciding which brand.
OS-Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack SP1a - OEM
CD Drive-SONY Beige 52x32x52 IDE Internal CD-RW Drive, Model CRX230E, OEM
Hard drive- Not sure what to get yet. Shoul I get 2 drives or just 1 big drive?
Case- I want a ATX case with at least 420W powersupply included. Someone recommend one for me.
I guess thats it. I was planning on waiting for the new 939 socket but I here it will be really expensive for a while and the difference compared to the 754 will be minimal. Any recommendations will be appreciated. I am still a complete noob at this computer building thing but Im a quick learner. Thanks
