My half new build
I wanted to review my new hardware with you.
Gigabyte GA K8U motherboard
AMD Sempron 64 3000+
Sunbeam 450 watt modular PSU
I haven't installed the 6800, I have a ASUS 5200 in it's place for now.
It's running fast and cool, faster than my Prescott core P4 3.2E, opening up programs takes very little time, Paint Shop Pro X takes only a few seconds now instead of over 6 seconds. Encoding video in DVD Shrink takes the same time if not a few minutes faster.
I thought that these parts would be a major downgrade since my ASUS P4P 800 E Deluxe mobo and P4 proc were so expensive. The Gigabyte was under 50 bucks shipped and the Sempron was 86 bucks shipped.
All I need to invest in now is a new case and I'll be set. This Raidmax case is grinding my gears.
