Since the lanuch of EverQuest 2, I really need a computer overall, I've decided that I'm going to buy the parts online, and then hire someone to put them together, since it's much much cheaper to do so anyway.
I've put together a list of what I'll be buying and such, I wanted your opinions on a budget wise PC, and where I can save money, or what part is really too advanced for the PC I'm trying to build.
I'm also wondering if these parts would go together at all, I get confused easily with RAM and Motherboards, and I don't want to make the mistake of buying an item, which I can't return.
Here's my list: (Money is in Australian Dollars by the way.)
Leadtek A340-T GeForce FX5200 128MB DDR, AGP8X,- $102.45
AMD Athlon 3000+ XP `Barton` with Cooling Fan- $263.20
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe, DDR400, 400FSB, AGP8x-Pro, GigLAN, SATA-RAID- $160.15
Corsair 512MB PC133 Value Select SDRAM- $156.20
4KUS 16X IDE DVD-ROM Drive, Retail Pack- $40.35
Western Digital 80Gb 7200rpm ATA100 HDD with 8MB Cache- $103.75
Antec SUPER-LANBOY 350W Midi-Tower Case (With Power Supply)- $207.00
Is there anywhere else, I could save money, or a cheaper solution?
Also, wondering about the case, I don't know how many slots I really need, it's kinda confusing, I pretty much want to budget as much as I can.
Thanks for your inputs. Really appricate it. I really looking to get it running on Everquest 2, which system recommended requirements are:
Operating System: Windows XP
Processor: 2 GHz or greater
RAM: 1 GB
Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible. Pixel shader and Vertex shader compatible hardware with 128mb of texture memory or greater
Thanks if anyone can help!
