Default My Build

This is a build I'm thinking of doing in a few months, of course it will probably change by then.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103747

I'm a little iffy on this mobo, does anyone have any reccomendations for a good AM2 mobo?

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813128321

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820145590

Do I need a floppy for BIOS and such? I figured it's so cheap I might as well just get one.

Yeah...that's nice.

I don't know that you need a floppy as most BIOS backups can now be done on CD. Besides, there might be some other mod that you could use that space for (fan controller for OC'ing).

At any rate that looks like it will put a s**t-eating grin on yer face.

sounds pretty good, if u want it to last and have something that can literaly do everything, try this if its in ur price range, if not, then the one u chose is ok also, mobo ok, vid ok, ram ok, floppy...i aint got nothin against them, but ur gonna have some cable clutter caused by that cable, so if ur a case neatfreak get a usb one like this so its outta the way, dvd burner good, dvd rom ? o well i guess, and what u gonna put it in?

EDIT: yes...the way it is it would put a **** eating grin on yer face

oh and bmx, the cpu you recommended is for socket 939, and i don't believe that that chip is available for socket AM2.

oops, haha, shoulda caught that, lol, guess i hit the wrong thing on newegg advanced search, o well AMD ATHLON 64 X2 4600+
lol bout the same, but its the 512 * 2 l2 chache version, and its a lil slower than the 1mb *2, but its still hungrey enough to eat nething u feed it and still be hungrey...^_^(but with the revolution of ddr2 and gddr3, ram speeds are getting closer than ever to the *not worthy*bow*not worthy* l2 cache.lol., but i guess that one meg can make a diff, cause i got an old p2 slot 1 with 512kb l2 and 64kb l1, and a celeron with 128kb l1 &l2, and it is a heck of alot slower, even tho the mhz are about 200 higher than the p2, tho i guess you could down(??maybe even up)grade to a 939 board, but to be safe for the future(and extinction) id go with am2(tho it still could die out like that one ram that dell came out with, what was it again?) gotta love that case, now i might consider getting that case after seeing it!!

I like the case, has plenty of room and a removable mobo tray.
