Yup it's been a while since ive posted. Use to be on here all the time when i was looking to build my first PC. Ever since it was built i just never came back on lol.
The specs of my build are:
Hiper Type-R 580 watt
DFI-lanparty UT nf4 Ultra-D
AMD 3700+ san diego 2.2ghz (Opteron 165 lost during shipping)
Corsair 2x512mb value ram
(G.skill DDR500 2gb HZ's lost during shipping)
WD 250GB SataII
Sapphire X1900XT 512MB
Now back then it was AMD ruling intel. The opterons were a hit!
But now everythings turned upside down. Intel are spanking AMD it seems.
Now im considering upgrading soon within the next couple of months. (i like the look of Crysis
Id like to upgrade the mobo, CPU and RAM.
I was thinking
Gigabyte GA_P35_DS3R (the one everyone loves right?)
G.Skill 2GB DDR2 HZ PC2-6400C4 (good for OC'n right?)
Now here's where im stumped:
I cant decide whether to go Dual Core or Quad Core.
I already have Windows XP home OEM, can i still install it with the aforementioned upgrades?
Anything worth waiting on soon?
I think thats everything.
Ps, im still in the UK.
