Hey guys, I am building a computer for my brother, and have come up with the following list of components. I am buying all the hardware at Microbytes
Asus A8N-SLI Premium
Athlon64 X2 3800+
Kingston KVR 400MHZ DDR 2048M kit
36 gig raptors (2 drives set as RAID 0)
Leadtek GF7 PX7600GT (1 for now)
Antec TX1050B Black 500W
Now I got a question:
For the memory I picked the cheapest 2 gig sticks, by Kingston. There are some that are much more expensive, for example an OCZ kit which is over a hundred dollars extra. (you can view the list here
). What is the difference between them? Would it be more worth going for a higher end 1 gig kit than a 2 gig value kit for example? Would I see a huge difference between 215$ sticks and 330$ sticks? I am not planning to overclock btw.
Besides that, how does the system look? It's not a gaming machine but more like an all round fast computer that won't keep my bro watining for anything
If you have any comments or suggestions for other hardware feel free to post em
Oh and will 500W be sufficient considering that in the future there might be 2gigs ram, maybe 3 HDs, 2 optical drives, 2 video cards and a floppy drive?
