  1. Ok, I was looking at some places to reduce my spending. I was wondering if I were to get a Phenom II x2 or x3 instead of the x4. Im not really sure what will the difference be between a X2,X3,X4. I know its like more cores, but is there a huge difference if i went for something other than the x4? edit: Should I use Windows Vista 32 bit or 64 bit? And I currently use Windows XP and like it a lot. Would it be wise to get XP again or upgrade to vista? edit2: I just saw this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811129064. A new combo deal. I was just wondering if i should go with this and save $70 or keep the corsair Psu. Thanks for all the help so far. All your information has helped me with my research
  2. Thanks for all the help so far. I will look into all the choices. Ive decided to get the 650 watt instead and for the HD, what is the difference between a 16 or 32mb cache? Im assuming it runs faster, but is there a difference for the price difference?
  3. Hey guys. Im new to the forum, but I have been reading around and it seems like this place is an awesome place to look for some advice for building a new computer. Ive been doing some research here and there and ive been trying to gather some things to build my first computer. I need this for gaming/other daily needs for a college student. Im putting down everything that I plan on purchasing from my monitor down to the case. So please feel free to leave some comments or recommendations. I plan to spend about 800-100 including the monitor because I have everything else. But I still have not yet decided on which Microsoft OS to get yet.
