I am working on my list for a new build.
I am not a gamer. And dont plan on gaming. BUT would not mind having some of capabilities/qualities i.e. graphics?
I want a system that is fast.
I currently have an old athlon on gateway and like it, so I want to stick with athlon.
I want a somewhat quiet system and one I that runs cool.
I do a lot of surfing, disc burnin, photography stuff, writing, mulkti-tasking (I always have to much going on)
I want a high -end dual core but dont want to spend the cash now but want a mobo that i can use for Athlon 64 now and go to dual core later. S939?
I want decent onboard graphics and sound.
I dont know about OC'ing and dont plan on it.
I want a stable,fast reliable machine.
I suppose I need a case,mobo and cpu to build off-of.
I am thinking:
MOBO (ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4) $84 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569
CPU (AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice ) $201
or (AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego) for 10$ >
CASE&Pow (Black Antec Quiet Super Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Antec 350W) $82
Would i want optional fans? front one?
HDD Something ATA, 7200RPM, 8MG cache, ~150GB ??
RAM 2x512 ? fastest?
MS XP Pro or, should I wait for Vista?
DVD drives I can figure out.
I have new lcd monitor,keyboard, mouse.
Thanks for any guidance
