I am tired of my wife complaining that our PC is slow and I that I can not browse internet while skype is running.
I am thinking of putting a PC together on a very tight budget
What do you guys think of this set up?
Amd Athlon 64 X2 S.Am2 4200+ Dual-Core
A13g+ Geforce 6100 Pci-E Ddr2 Sata S.Am2
gb Pc2 5300 667mhz Ddr2 Kit 2x1gb Chips
I already have a Nvidia GoForce 5500 (PCI)
600watt Dual Core Certified Power Supply
High-Speed Fan With Thermal Compound
High-Speed Case Cooling Fan 80mm
I already have two HDD
The whole thing minus the video card and the HDD that I already have is $280.
My main question is how is the motherboard? There are so many processors nowadays that I am not sure which one is decent one. I think Pentium is overpriced, so hopefully for home use I can du just fine with the AMD one.
I currently have a dual 1 gHz penitum with 1 GB of the old RAM. Will this new set up provide noticeable upgrade? Am I missing something? Is there anything that I should spend bit more money and get more value (i.e., the motherboard?).
