Default Rate my finished fully upgraded build

I'm at a point where I'm not going to upgrade anymore and I'd like a rating.

0 - 10


CPU: AMD 4400+

OC'd to FX-60 Levels running stable with low heat. I do not buy into the Opteron hype downgrade me for that if you must.


Mobo: ASUS A8N-SLI

Little unhappy no dual lan but I get by.


GPU: eVGA 7800 GTX

can't argue with it even more so for the price I got it.

Sound Card: Sound Blaster X-FI Extreme Music

Just upgraded to this seems alright.

Stock side fan and stock rear fan. Added CPU Cooler, Front intake, VGA cooler fans.

500Watt PSU

2x Nlite DVD R/RW, CD Combo

Standard Floppy Drive

SATA2 HD, 16mb Cache, 250Gigs
IDE HD, 8 mb Cache, 120Gigs

SAGITTA Case

Other Thoughts: didn't suffer from price performance ratios as a family member got some parts out of the states and used some friends connections don't see him to often. Only expensive part bought without a cheap discount of some form as the sound card.

Great build and i won't rate it because I think it will be good for the future as well. You obviously did your homework. I really like the SATA hardddrive with the 16mb cahche.

Good catch.

Also, that's a nice build, but how much did you pay for it? How much of discounts did you get?

The ram isn't so impressive actually.

four sticks of 512 megs but I'm not complaining as this I got for free. Probably some value ram as well but you can't argue when it's free.
