Ok, I posted a thread about me building my parents a new comp, and I'll be giving them some of my parts (CPU, mobo, and possibly RAM and vid card)....ok that's about my whole system, but I had a couple of questions about performance and what they'll be doing:
1. I have a 9800Pro that cost me $171 about. I see here
that the 6600 is cheaper and is better, correct? This new comp for my parents will be used for office work and some online video watching. Would it be beneficial to give them my 9800Pro and them buy me one of those 6600s in place for some other vid card?
2. I will be giving them my cpu (P4 2.8ghz) and my mobo (p4p800 se). They will, in return, be getting me an AMD, seeing that P4s are more app cpus and I do more gaming. I will hope to get a 64 3200. I believe the core I want is Winchester, correct? I want the cooler core and a socket 939, which is, if ram serves me right, is the better socket? And I also need a good mobo under $100.
3. I may as well let them have my 512 RAM. I check the ram usage meter and it is almost always a 80+% cause of the stuff I'm running. I found this
. I want to conserve money as much as possible, and my previous ValueRam gave me no problems and it was cheap so I'm gonna get it again. Any suggestions? I really wanna keep the RAM as low as I possibly can make it, price wise.
Yea, I'm pretty much giving them my comp and they are buying me some new parts. Anyone have any better ideas? Thanks.
