First off to str8lazy,
EDIT: Strike what I said earlier about it (PCI Express) not being compatible, I was looking at the nForce3 instead of 4 sorry. But that almost seems like a waste, it can only do 4x and ur getting an 16x card...
I think you might be a little confused(maybe not idk
) so i'm going to try to clear things up.
I think you may be looking at arrow 1 wich says it only supports 4x. If you look arrow 2 you see that there's 2 PCI-E x16 slots. I don't know if this is what you saw but when i read your edit i was a little confused myself and this is the only explenation i could think of.
If I understood wrong tell me what you ment.
Second, After much time on Newegg and google i have a pretty final list.
Unfortunatly I am at $1,071.99 ($71.99 over budget) but I may be able to continue with the build(hopefully
) The final(ish) Parts list looks like this:
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice Integrated into Chip FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor
eVGA 256-P2-N376-AX Geforce 6800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard
OCZ Gold Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory
ASPIRE X-Navigator ATXA9NW-AL/450 Black/Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450W Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar SE WD400JD 40GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive
Now a few notes on the list...
On the processor i didn't realise this before but the L2 Cache is only 512mb. Is this sufficent?
Can I get a different PCI-E x16 G-Card with a lower price with out sacrificing too much preformance?
I really like this case but is the PSU Sufficent? (I really don't want to buy anything else :grind: )
This price seems pretty good for a Hard Drive, any comments?
Lastly are all of these items compatable and will i Fry $1000 at the end of this build with these parts? Any comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
