I plan on having this built and ready by the beginning of summer, maybe if I can get a few extra hours at work perhaps by march break
Basically, its a 754 system, DONT GET ANGRY AT ME!!! Well, not yet anyways, let me finish lol.
Case choices so far:
I'm pretty sure I wanna go with the Antec Super Lanboy and throw an OCZ Modstream in there. I was looking at that Nikao Net
450Watt powersupply for half the cost of the modstream. It looks pretty cool I just can't find any reviews on it from Xbit labs or Anandtech so I don't know if I wanna go for it.
Okay, so this is whats going to be in it.
DFI Lanparty 250GB UT s754 motherboard
250gb sata harddrive
dvd burner/dvd rom/floppy drive yada yada
Zalman CNPS7000B with the LED light (This is the AlCu model)
Theres an AGP8x slot, I just dont know what to put in it
Alright, so I got a few questions. Firstly, I dont know which processor to put in it. It's obviously going to be a sempron processor. I dont know what to get. First things first, its going to be a 64-bit palermo core sempron. So far I'm leaning towards the 3100+ but the 3400+ looks pretty good too. They're apparantly amazing overclockers which is why I chose this build.
The lanparty's chipset is a nforce3 250Gb, it is covered by a passive heatsink. I'm assuming I'm going to be running a bit more voltage through it then normal because of the overclock, so will this be a problem since it has no fan?
And lastly, the video card. I believe the 6800GS is comiing out soon in AGP form, or was it the 7800GS. If nothing interesting comes out I might consider a 6800LE or a 6600GT or perhaps something along those lines.
