Well I've been rather disappointed with my PC's performance and I think its time again to upgrade the motherboard / CPU. (Mainly speed reasons)
I'm currently running an Athlon64 3000+ which non-oc'd runs at about 1.9ghz.
I'm looking at upgrading to hopefully 2.8ghz+ maybe even more than 3.0 ghz if I can !
However I'm limited on money so looking for the best speed for my buck. I have no interest in all the little gadgets on the motherboard, I just want the pure speed, AGP, DDR dimm slots, etc..
I've been checking out Tigerdirect.com and came across a few bundles that I was curious about. I don't quite understand why they are so cheap but $100 seems like a great deal for a 2.9-3.2ghz motheboard / cpu combo.
Heres a few links, if anyone please has some spare time and can give me a few reviews / suggestions / advice:
Thank you very much!
(Also, I'm normally an AMD person, but the speed from the Celeron D bundles compared to the high price of the AMD's on there seems to outweigh the brand name stipulation)
Good lookin one:
Price too good to be true ? :
Well theres a ton of good motherboard combos on this website, it seems that I'm aiming for a Micro ATX motheboard / CPU combo. I pretty much don't require a Full ATX motherboard anymore since all the extra slots and ports always end up going to waste. Perhaps that is why there is such a large price difference.
Anyways, so like I said earlier, I'm looking to get a new combo for around 100 dollars. Please, if anyone can check out those links or even this page : http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...c.asp?CatId=14
I appreciate any and all help anyone can give me on which would be the best combo for speed over gadgets.
Thank you again!!
