ok, im trying to put together a decent, medium-caliber computer.
some gaming, but no BF2 on high, more like Age of empires 3 on low.
my budget is about 580 USD, no higher whatsoever.
so this is what i got sofar.
this case, many spots for fans...
hitachi 80gb internal HD 7200 rpm 8 mb cache
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Socket A (Socket 462) NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 ATX AMD Motherboard
eVGA 128-A8-N350 Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card
AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton 333MHz FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket A Processor
this is what i got.
it comes out to 500 bucks, 100 less than what i said was my money, but i still need to hook it up to a wireless network because the cable modem's accross the house, and for that i need router/WAC
what do i need ot hook the computer up to a wireless network?
and i still need a dvd-rom (can a dvd rom play cd's and games AND dvd's)
a floppy drive
and mabe a few other fans.
THanks, this is what i have lined up, comments and constructive critisizm much appriciated.
ALSO can i reuse the Windows XP home and microsoft office that came with my current dell dimention 2400, which was incidentaly purchased october of 2003 (if you need to know)???
if not...i think this whole thing might be off becuase of lack of funding.
thanks a lot.
