Hello. I'm seriously considering upgrading my pc within the next few weeks, and I've been doing a little research within the pc market. Currently I have a p3 1ghz, 512mb of SDRam and a GeForce2. Obviously I desperately need an upgrade. I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask such a thing or if it's been asked recently, I've searched the forum and haven't found anything similiar. I've never done this before so I'm slightly apprehensive about doing so, but I understand that it's a good opportunity for me, so without further adeu, here's what I'm looking at:
I have a mouse/keyboard/monitor/speakers/networking card/sound card/floppy drive/cd drives. I'm going to buy two hard drives(RAID)/Motherboard/CPU/Video Card/Ram/Case/Power Supply.
Currently I've been doing some shopping on newegg.com and have found these:
($114)Case : ANTEC case with 430W Power Supply
($111)Mobo : ABIT "AV8" K8T800 Motherboard for 939 CPU
($185)Video Card: MSI Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb
($291)CPU : Athlon 64 3400
($168)RAM : Kingston ValueRAM, DDR PC-3200, 1gb
($132)Hard Drive: Two(2) Western Digital 7200rpm 80GB SATA Hard drives
If I buy the current mobo/cpu/ram together I get $50 off.
I'm open to any and all suggestions of what I should get, brand names, types, etc, everything. Generally I don't want to spend anything more than this, in fact I wanted to spend less but that's how things go I suppose. I'm going to use this computer for gaming/browsing internet mostly.
I appreciate any answers anyone can give me, thankyou.
