Since i'm going to wait for the c2quad to go down in price. I was just thinking of upgrading my old pc cheaply which is like 5 years old. Its still running the amd 64 3000+ on a k8v deluxe mobo and like 1gb of kingston ddr ram and a ati radeon 9700 pro... i know very old parts huh?
well I was planning on first going with this kind of build.
the amd 64 x2 3600+
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - OEM
mobo: no idea .. suggestions plz
ram: can u guys recommend a good 1gb one? like a g.skillz i suppose heh. good one but cheap also.
and maybe a cheap video card too.. not really looking to go indepth in gaming with this rig. something cheap also.
and the case i was thinking of going with the coolermaster centurion one.
pretty much i guess a budget of like 300 ? maybe haha don't know prices... maybe go a little higher? but not looking to spend much. just enough to keep me going with better performance stuff until july 22nd. Thanks guys
