Default Building Advice for my New Rig :)

DDR2 2048MB(2G Single stick)PC6400 800Mhz

Samsung 400G 7200RPM SATAII

Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave

Powersupply Antec ATX EarthWatts 430W

Thermaltake Wing RS100 Midi Tower Black(No PSU)



what do u guys think of my motherbard, can it run high end cards or crossfire/SLI?

Is my PSU sufficient?

what do u think of the case does anyone know any cheap goodlooking cases or should i just get the Antec NSK6580 Solution Series ATX MiniTower which comes with the same PSU im getting?

what do u think of the key board, there are are two im considering the Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave or the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX3200 Laser, which is better and why?


Thanks in advance and any other recommendations are welcomed?Big Smile

says it supports it in 8x/8x. I recommend switching to intel. You'll have a faster pc clock for clock and a P35 DS3L is the same price as that mb and will oc nicely

He's basically saying that the intel processors will be faster than the amd processors when both clock speeds are the same.

Amd at 2.5GHz < Intel at 2.5GHz

Because intel has a better architecture than amd, intels processors have better performance with same clock speeds.
