OK i just built a computer from scratch well sorta lol
ok i went with your basic atx case,mic ports,2 usb, side case fan(is this feesible?) Anyways, i got an amptron m922lu p4 board, supports up to 2Gigs ddr or 2Gigs sdram. also i went with a 2.4 p4
Fsb 533. And then just used my old geforce 440 mx vid card (64Mb)
and my 20gb wd hdd. Now what would you guys recommend i upgrade next and why also whats some good hardware to upgrade to. All thought r appreciated.
Are you going to be playing games alot?If not, Id start with a bigger hard drive, then depending on what your gonna do, a midrange 128mb vid card.RAM needs depend on which OS and what apps you are running.
If you are going to play games, definatly upgrade the video first. anything above a Radeon 9700 Pro will probably bottleneck though because of your processor. but hey, theres nothing wrong with a 9700 Pro, i'm using a 9500 Pro, and i can run Doom 3 (medium), HL2(high), Splinter Cell Chaos Theory(high), and Far Cry(medium) well over 40fps.
