Hey everyone, howzit goin?
Okay, so I am on an ULTRA-LOW budget for my current build.
I want to seek your best advice on the RAM and a choice between the two motherboards of the same kind.
1. RAM - which is the cheapest 2GB RAM I can get to run XP Professional or Vista to play light games. Most of the games that I play have the following system requirements (I am assuming the they are the minimum).
1.4 GHz Pentium 4 processor
128MB DirectX 9 compatible video card
16-bit DirectX compatible sound card
2 GB free hard drive space
I dont play shooting or games based mainly on violence.
I am more into "light" games if you will .. simply because they are more funny and entertaining!
My current planned rig does not have a videocard for now. Since I am going with AMD therefore I am planning to get a 780G based Gigabyte motherboard so that I can play these games until I can afford a decent videocard. The cpu btw is the X2 5000+
Choices for the Motherboard are:
Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H AMD 780G mATX - Miro ATX
Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H AMD780G ATX - ATX
Question -> would a videocard have more free space to fit on a micro or the atx? Which of these boards would be a better buy to add on a good cpu cooler later on?
Ya'll know you rock.. so help the buddy out!
PS. I'll be using DirectCanada
to order my rig so if someone cud do the cheapest build for me using this website. it wud be cool.
Motherboard to be used - (above or any 780g mobo with LEAST problems)
AMD CPU - 5000+
dont add in a videocard.
assemble the rest if u can and let me know.
