2fast4u, if i decide i dont need the spare parts i may mail the extra parts to you if you still need them by the time im done. But before i can say that i will, i need to first see if anyone in my house needs any of them. My dad might for his cpu.
anyway, is this still a good build? My cpu is used for gaming, photoshopping and watching anime (yeah im a nerd
I got this build from reading a few of the other topics i found searching the forum.
MSI K8N NEO4-F --- 80.00$ now, i can probally afford more. if theres better
X2 3800+ --- $322.00, probally step this down a notch, i feel processor are ahead of the game. no need for a top notch one.
2*1GB corsair valueselect --- $194.00, This sounds on the mark.
HD's are covered already.
Case ASPIRE X-Navigator ATXA8NW-AL --- $154.00, comes with a 500watt supply
eVGA 7800GT --- $314.00, nvidia the way to go now? i used to be a fan of ati. but i know nothing of the new models.
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 --- $75.00, ive always used on board sound. do these make any difference?
I think that list is missing some things, will processors come with a good stock fan now? or is it best to buy one?
monitor, ill go with a nec lcd, 309.00
keyboard/mouse, $75 for both i would guess.
That puts me at 1,523.00, Should i step down the processor in favor of a better mobo? what about the video card, is that overkill? 1,500 is doable but i'd like to get it down some if possible.
Edit: one more thing, my sound and video card need to have a tv out function for my anime
