  1. first thanks to all of you. actually i missed sonata III w/500W deal. I don't know when it will come out again. so i ordered 4480. poor me.
  2. anyway, thank you for your comment. I am happy to be one member here, though i don't do oc.
  3. actually, one of my friend, who told me, ecs mobo is not bad if i do not do oc, it might lost at most 10% performance. and I did some calculation. e6550 w/ecs will run like 2.0G but still 4Mb L2, 1333FSB, which should be better than e2140 w/giga p35. this is why i decide to go for that combo. I am not sure this is right. and i can not get a nice review for it. thanks
  4. thanks, actually i don't want to do oc.
  5. e6550 w/ecs 945gct/1333 combo 150$ frys corsair ddr2 800 pc6400 2x1gb 4-4-4-12 30$(50$MIR) frys xfx geforece 8600gt 80$(30$MIR) newegg seagate 7200 sata/3 320gb 65$ frys samsung 20x dvd 202 25$ newegg antec nsk4480 w/380W 30$(30$MIR) zipzoomfly keyboard, mouse, 20$ newegg viewsonic vx2240w 240$(20$MIR) zipzoomfly total price 640$ total tax 60$(too expansive here) total shipping 26$ final price 726$ system free, opensuse or ubuntu my original budget is 600$, but finally go above 700$. So i might return 8600 VC, and use onboard vc temporally. Do you think 8600 price might drop a lot in half year? also i might return e6550 combo, go newegg get some better motherboard with cheaper cpu. how do u guys think of it? any comments? the same question like other builds, can my build beat dell system? thanks

  7. i would get a cheaper case, and go for a better MB.
  8. personally, I like ubuntu and opensuse.
  9. actually i am looking for budget LCD too. And I considered this two LCDs, but my friend suggest me not go for Acer ones. It looks like x221 is better than al2216, i am not sure.
  10. Thank you, everybody, especially cchalogamer, who give me detail comments on those MBs. I will wait one or two weeks for some open box ABIT IP35-E or GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L under 70$. If not, I will go for msi p6n 650i. by the way, may i ask what is the difference of P35 and P31 board. Should I also consider P31 board? thanks
  11. limited by my budget, I can only get one under 70$. CPU is E4500 or E2200. VC is geforece 8600gt I don't do OC. thanks:)

Limited by my budget, I can only consider MB strict under 70$. thank you very much.
  13. i use senn for long time, 580, 600, 650, finally, i keep my 580 for more than 6 years. I think right now, you can very easliy get a nice condition 580 around 100$, or even new one. I bought it brand new only something around 150$, and that was 6 years ago. As I know, all other 5 series headphone is not good as 580. I keep 580 just because the performance/price ratio can not beat by 600 or 650. Another one I would recommend, which is AKG 501. I like it very much, just like 580. i sold mine when i got 580. you should go http://www.head-fi.org/, there is a lot of useful information. good luck.
  14. I am thinking DIY a desktop myself. here the components: Intel core 2 dual e4500 w/ ECS 945 motherboard 120$ (ECS mb might sell for 10-20 bucks in ebay, no idea right now) Msi P35 neo motherboard 60$ Xfx geforce 8600gt 256mb 128 bit xxx video card 80$ Seagate 320gb sata/300 16mb cache 65$ Corsair DDR2 pc 6400 800 2gb 30$ Samsung 20x DVD burner 25$ Logitech keyboard 8$ Microsoft mouse 10$ Antec NSK4480B case w/ 380W 30$ Viewsonic VA2016w 22" wide LCD 180$ total, 608$ before tax. I just wonder can I beat any Dell E4500 desktop deal. Please give me your suggestion. thanks
  15. thank you very much. I decide to take e2200+ some cheaper P35 mb with 8600vc.
  16. e2200 with BIOSTAR P35D2-A7 or amd 5000+ with BIOSTAR tf 560 video card, xfx 8600gt ram, corsair pc6400 2gb seagate 320gb sata/300 mainly for watching movie, photoshop, c++ program, few 3d games. please help me work it out. thanks
  17. thanks, I just can not stand for the cheaper price of those combos, and lost myself.
  18. my total budget is 600$ including LCD, few old version 3d game, NBA or NFS, mainly for home use, watchc movie, photoshop, and programming C++. I already bought a seagate 320gb sata hd 65$, cosair pc6400 2gb 30$, antec sonata with 500w 50$, and viewsonic 2026 180$. I still need input stuff, DVD burner, cpu fan, maybe around 75$ so I only got 200$ for cpu+motherboard+video card, need suggestion for this part. I am thinking biostar tf560 or tf 570 open box around 50$, amd 5000 or 4800 less 100$, I might get a hd 2600 for 50$ after MIR. another choice, I might wait for some cheap comboat local store, lilke amd 5600+ecs nforce6m for 130$, 70$ for a video card. or E4500+ ecs gf7111pvt-m for 120$, 80$ for video card. could you give me some suggestions? thanks a bunch.
  19. thanks for your suggestions. I almost decide for Tf560(50$), but compare Tf570 sli(50$), or MSI K9n 560(40$), ECS AMD690GM(40$), which one is better for price? thanks By the way, all three are open box, sale in newegg. Video card, I might try any brand HD 2600pro(256MB, 128bit) around 50$. I am also thinking return AMD 5000+, and wait for frys combo, like amd 5600+ECS nforce6m-a, only 130$ for local store.In this case, I might go for a chespest nforce 8600. I only have 200$ budget for cpu+motherboard+video card. thanaks
  20. My budget is 600$ including 19" LCD. Now I bought a amd 5000+ black 95$, corsair pc 6400 2gb 30$ after MIR seagate 320g sata/300 7200 65$. antec sonata III with 500W 55$ I still have 355$. I only play few games, desktop for home use. I need recommendations for motherboard and video cards. thanks a bunch.
