Hey Guys!! For my christmas present, my mom said that if i was willing to give away my computer right now to my sister which i am, then i could possibly get parts for a homebuilt comp! I have the basics all setup, and i need suggestions on the stuff that has nothing after it-
--Hard rive: Western digital Serial ATA 500GB 16MB WD5000KS
--CPU: Intel Pentium D 940 - 3.2GHz Dual-Core. Presler. 2x2MB L2 Cache 800FSB Socket LGA 775 Vista Ready 64 bit Support
--MotherBoard: MSI 975X Platinum V.2 Core 2 Duo 975X DDR2-800 SATA2 A&GbE ATX Motherboard MB-975XPV2
--Memory/RAM: Komusa 2GB ( 1024MBx2) DDR2 800M
--Video Card: EVGA nVidia GeForce 7600GT KO 256MB 580MHz 2DVI/HDTV PCI-Express Video Card
--Speakers: Creative Labs SBS580
so what do you think of it so far, and any suggestions on the stuff that i havent decided on yet?
Suggestions from me.
-Wait till Vista comes.
-Get 2 Sata HD X 250GB each one anf config them in Raid 0 Array.You will get a much more faster 500GB HD.(The system recognises them as a 500GB one)
-Definetly buy a DX 10 GFX. nVIDIA already produce them.
-750W power supply(At least)
-1more GB of RAM should be perfect.
Of course I know that money are alwayw an issue so these are only my personal thoughts and theory.
Other suggestions will shortly come.
I wouldn't worry too much about the specs. Whatever you get, it'll be obsolete in a year and a half. Sounds like you will have way more capacity than you would need. I've got a 160GB HD and I think I've only got 12 of it filled after 2 years!
