Upgrading my PC
 
Well...my pc just doesn't make the cut anymore... I need to do a bit of an upgrade for it to work with Battlefield 2 and I'd like to see if these parts will work with my mobo...

Ram: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Kingston
CPU: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...6&promoid=1046
Vid Card: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=eVGA

Oh, and I have an OLLLLLLLLD mobo, it's called a "ASUS P4S333" :amazed:. Which means nothing to me at all...all I know is that the Video card fits into the PCI slots I have (I think), and the ram suites the pc2700 that the User Guide says. As for the cpu, I have no clue if it will work or not. So, any clarafications for these parts are greatly welcomed. So are suggestions to other parts (must ship to canada hah)

That CPU wont fit it. Thats a Socket LGA775, yours is a Socket 478.

I don't think that video card will be worth it. It's PCI. PCI sucks. PCI-express rocks.

And you don't have dual channel memory slots.


I recommend you get a new mobo, an AMD athlon 64 (socket 939), and dual channel 512MB DDR400 (PC3200), and a decent PCI-Express video card.

How much would a half-decent mobo cost? If you could recommend a good one, that isn't too expensive, I'll find some parts that will fit with it, and ask again...

Gigabyte makes great products for intel CPU's. Thats all I use.

blackhawk13 01-14-2006 06:16 PM

Would this mobo do the job?

I know it's ASUS, but still...it's something. I just want to know if those parts will WORK with it.

For Intel this would be a decent setup:

CPU: P4 3.0Ghz LGA775
Mobo: MSI 915P Neo-F
RAM: Geil 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200
Video Card: Anything PCI-Express would work. Depends on how intense the games you wanna play are

For AMD this would be a decent setup:

CPU: Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Core
Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4-F
RAM: Geil 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200
Video Card: Anything PCI-Express would work. Depends on how intense the games you wanna play are

Ok, those are from newegg, which is american ;). And I need somewhere that can ship to canada...So, finally, I hope these work -_-

mobo - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Gigabyte
cpu - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...anufacture=AMD
ram - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Kingston

...and I'll pick a vid card later. Hopefully this works...

Motherboard: http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...688&cid=MB.693

CPU: http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...86&cid=CPU.611


The ram you selected is fairly high preformance ram, are you overclocking? If your not get something like this:
