Building New System For Fall


Recommended Posts

Well, I'm going off to school in the fall and am going to build a system by then. A mutual friend put the following together:



ECS NFORCE4-A939 (1.0) Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail



AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego Integrated into Chip FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3700BNBOX - Retail



CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model TWINX1024-3200C2PT - Retail


Video Card

Apollo Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail


Hard Drive

Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3250823AS 250GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM


Cd/Dvd Drive

NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model ND-3520A - OEM



THERMALTAKE Tsunami VA3000BWA Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail





I wanted something good for gaming, but don't have the funds for an absolute top of the line system. I mainly play FPS, so will this be good? Also, is there any way you think I could get a comparative system for cheaper? I will also need a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. BTW, I am thinking about waiting until mid-july to order to try and get better deals.


Any other reccomendations would be welcomed.

Dude, MSI Neo4 platinum MoBo, Mushkin Ram from MushKin.com, 6600gt or 256 mb XFX PCIE. Don't limit yourself to newegg, there are many others with less expensive prices.
