En route to building my first computer in the next couple
months or so. I am pretty savy yet never worked with a
motherboard/processor before. I already have a good
monitor, DVD/CD-RW drive, and two harddrives which
total to 150GB of space - I'm fine with that for now. Oh
and I also already have 1GB of dual channel Ram.
So basically I am just purchasing a case w/power, a new
motherboard, a new processor and a graphics card. Let
me know if these are a) compatible and b) mid-range decent.
I am mostly a gamer, currently playing World of Warcraft,
and awaiting Battlefield 2 in March! /drool
AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 512KB L2 Cache 64-bit Processor - ($146.00)
CHAINTECH nForce3 250 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 Athlon 64 CPU ($76.00)
Leadtek nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP ($280.00)
*****Opinions on this compared to 6600GT? Worth the extra money?
Dynex ATX Mid-Tower Case - 500W
($80.00) - I work here, nice discount.
Roughly $600.00 - I am hoping for some discounts or sales, or possibly saving nearly a $100.00 by going for 6600GT. Like I said this will be my first home-made computer, so any critique is welcomed and appreciated! Thank you.
