ok im not sure if this is my final build cause of conroe compatibility issues, but here it is, tell me if i need to change anything.
Intel Pentium 4 631
G.SKILL 2gb DDR2 667 PC5400
Antec TruepowerII 550w PSU
WD Caviar SE16 250gb SATA2
Viewsonic P70F 17" CRT
(dont tell me to get an LCD or a bigger CRT, it's not in my budget and i dont like a realy big monitor, im happy with my 15" Dell CRT)
BenQ DVD burner w/lightscribe
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
Ok about the Conroe compatibility thing i found this on Intel.com, it makes me think that conroe will work on the 975X chipset.
next-generation extreme edition proccessor" then under that for the motherboard it says "intel 975X express chipset", im guessing that the "next generation Extreme edition proccessor" wil be conroe.
i also found thing on multiple other web site like these.
Intel has indicated that Conroe will work in existing 975X motherboards, though a BIOS update will be needed.
im not 100% but im pretty sure conroe willl work with 975X boards.
any comments on my build or conroe and 975X?
