Specs of my old System
Athlon XP 2500 , ASUS a7n8x Deluxe motherboard, 1.5 GB (DDR 400) PC 3200 RAM, Geforce FX 5600, 120 GB Seagate , 450 Watt PSU.
I decided to upgrade after Video card and hard drive died.
I was conflicted about loosing the memory since I just bought 1 Gb about 6 months ago. I was thinking of going with an AMD 939 set up in which I would still be able to use my DDR 400 memory. However, after reading the great reviews about the Intel Core 2 Duo I was considering a switch to Intel.
I would appreciate some feedback about my chosen parts:
Motherboard - ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel 975X
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz
Memory - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Hard drive (Already bought) - Seagate Barracuda ES ST3320620NS 320GB 7200 RPM
Video Card - Geforce 7600 (Already bought, I'm a light gamer)
Thanks in advance
