X-mas Present To Myself

Recommended Posts

This is what I'll be buying for myself this Christmas season. I may upgrade to an NF4 Ultra-Infinity by DFI if I can afford it.

 

ASRock K8NF4G Micro-ATX

 

Sapphire X800GTO (256 megs GDDR3)

 

AMD Sempron 64 2600+

 

And to power it all:

 

Fortron Source 450w

 

 

If I use my writing skills well, I may be able to use a gig of RAM from my brother's system. It'll be used mainly for gaming with CS:S and UT2k4.

Bigr, you know what?

 

The noticeable gaming difference between a Sempron 64 and Venice is UN-NOTICEABLE TO THE HUMAN EYE AT EQUIVALENT CLOCK SPEEDS!

 

And why buy the best Bang:Buck ratio PSU out there? Well, that should be self-explanatory.

 

I may go with the Connect 3D X800GTO, even though the newer batches don't seem to unlock. Hitting 600+ on core is very attracting. I'll throw an ATI Silencer on that baby and have some fun :D.

Sorry to tell you, but that PSU is both weak and it isn't quality.

FYI bigr, Fortron makes some VERY good quality PSUs, unlike that POS Coolermaster you recommended. At least have the common sense to recommend an Antec or a OCZ PSU, which are the equivalent of, if not better, than that Fortron

don't even give me a reason to start on you.

 

not everyone's parents give them $$$ and parts for thier rigs

 

 

also why would you suggest a pile of crap PSU like that? why not just go all out and suggest powmax?
