hi. been reading this forum for some months now, and i say that the people here are really helpful for newbies on building their first rig. well, im a newbie too, and i'd like to ask for your advice.
first of all, im not going conroe coz it's out of stock
so ill go AMD X2. i still dont know if im going AM2 or 939 coz i only have $800 do spend (i just came from the Philippines, just graduated there, and managed to save some money. honestly, $800 is all i have right now for my rig) maybe after a few months of work here in Cali, i could save enough money to buy a conroe rig or a better build.
im not really into gaming. im not a die hard gamer. but i could still play some games once in a while, so i dont need a high end video card. maybe a medium stock video card will be just fine for me..
im thinking of getting AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2000MHz HT 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor
amd athlon 64 x2 4200+
could you give me a good mobo, memory card, and a semi-fine gfx card to pair with it?
the other part im thinking of getting are these:
seagate barracuda 7200 160gig
western digital 250gig
NEC dvd drive combo
logitech wireless mouse/keyboard
antec truepower TPII
case!? i already have a case. i bought it in the Philippines.
all in all, the parts that i chose are more or less $420 already, which leaves another $380 for mobo, memory, and gfx card + shipping and tax.
are there any more parts that im missing?
and oh, im not into OCing,. havent tried OCing before so i guess OCing is out of the topic. but who knows, maybe ill try to OC sometime and see if it will be succesful.
thanks alot guys.. your will help will be very much appreciated..
