Decided to upgrade.. Need help
Hye guys, I fianlly decided to dish out the 400-500 bucks neccesary to upgrade my comp.. I am currently running a amd athlon 1800+ 15.ghz cpu on a old abit Mobo with 512 ddr ram and a 9600 XT vid card with sound blaster audigy..
I want to keep my vid card the same, ethernet and sound card., case.. etc.. but want to upgrade my Mobo and slap on a P4 HT 2.8e ghz CPU with 1mb L2 at 800mhz FSB on an ASUS P4P800SE (HT supported, up to 800mhz FSB supported, on board RAID support aswell), this alone would cost be around 300 bucks.. What I want to know though, is what type of ram should I get for this?
and also.. does anyone know if the asus p4p800se has any radeon vid card compatability issues? beacuse I have read a review from someone who said his 9600 XT (same card I have) did not work well with tihs mobo while playing games.. while another person with a 9800, and someoen else with a 9600PRO said it worked fine.. So I am a bit worried.
