new PC post 2
Hey guys, I posted a topic a few weeks ago about getting a new pc. Anyways here is what I have purchases to date, I decided to spend a bit more and make it more future-proof if there is such a thing.
Asus P5W DH Deluxe
Intel E6400 Conroe
2x1GB Team Xteem DDR2 800 ram 4-4-4-10 (maybe i put too many 4's)
Antec P180b Case
Q1) Power supply? I have a startech 500 Watt currently. And was told it was a pretty good psu. I am sure 500 Watt is plenty for this setup, however I might be doing crossfire later on if possible. Is this make ok? I know they make alright compute cables lol
Q2) Hard Drive. I have plenty of 300GB PATA drives, 7200rpm 16mb cache. I was thinking about getting a single 74gb raptor. Or for the less $$ I could put 2 7200rpm 160gb drives in raid 0... Which do you think would be 'worth it'?
Q3) Video card: Do I get a x1950 pro 256mb for about $200, then sell it when the new dx10 cards come out in a few months. Or should I get a 8800 GTS right now and leave it.
Thanks for your help!
