In the process of building my first rig
Here are the parts I've ordered so far:
What I have left to buy: processor, memory, videocard, cd-rw/dvd drive, floppy drive, operating system
AMD 64 3500 + Venice Core for processor, Memory I'm looking at a max of 1gb, for video card I'm thinking about just going with an x800 XL as I hear that is probably a good budget video card, as for the operating system windows xp professional.
Any recommendations or sites with some good deals are welcome.
I plan to use this for gaming, but I'm not really an extreme hardcore type that demands the best of the best for every part as you can see from some of the parts I've chosen. Whatever basically that will work, reliable, and will give me some good performance at a reasonable price like it shouldn't be anything over $150 for 1gig memory. I may eventually feel the need to overclock the memory overtime when I get really bored . Anyways I've checked my mobo and it says it supports up to PC3200. I've also made a post on this in anandtech and here is what they are recommending to me:
I was wondering if you guys any particular ones in mind that is better then the one above or should I go with OCZ then
