Post Your Tentative Project!


Recommended Posts

I just started reading this forum recently, but I notice that a great deal of the threads revolve around "What should I buy?" Why not just have a thread full of that kind of advise?




Lets spec it out from the ground up, cases, cooling, processors, mb's, hdds, memory, the whole thing.


Everyone seems to dig on the Barton 2500s, what's going to be the next chip that the majority of OCers turn to?

Read my signature, its the system that I have always wanted. State of the art video card. A processor running faster than all other stock AMD chips, watercooling. It is fast as hell and can do whatever I want ti to do. I will be happy for about 6 more months, until i wanna spend more money =)

sure they can use the ddr500 the athlon 64 3200+ could but it would be nowhere near ddr500speeds the drr500 would be running 400 or however much you could speed up the ht (hypertransport) . since they moved the mem controller to the cpus die alot of latency issues have been overcome and ddr3200 or 400mhz is surprising fast gaming and other mem bandwidth hungry apps .


what i would build today is a 3200+ 64 via chipset mobo some nice 3500ram and a 9800pro xt . i did order a 3200+64 but mobo came in doa and lucked out on returning the cpu(was out close to 90bucks on restocking fees) so i put the money up for a future upgrade sine im already running fast enoguh to hold me over till next year
