Recommended Posts

e6550 w/ecs 945gct/1333 combo 150$ frys

corsair ddr2 800 pc6400 2x1gb 4-4-4-12 30$(50$MIR) frys

xfx geforece 8600gt 80$(30$MIR) newegg

seagate 7200 sata/3 320gb 65$ frys

samsung 20x dvd 202 25$ newegg

antec nsk4480 w/380W 30$(30$MIR) zipzoomfly

keyboard, mouse, 20$ newegg

viewsonic vx2240w 240$(20$MIR) zipzoomfly

total price 640$

total tax 60$(too expansive here)

total shipping 26$

final price 726$


OS:ubuntu or opensuse free


my original budget is 600$, but finally go above 700$. So i might return

8600 VC, and use onboard vc temporally. Do you think 8600 price might drop a

lot in half year? also i might return e6550 combo, go newegg get some better

motherboard with cheaper cpu.


how do u guys think of it? any comments?

the same question like other builds, can my build beat dell system?

actually, one of my friend, who told me, ecs mobo is not bad if i do not do oc, it might lost at most 10% performance.

and I did some calculation. e6550 w/ecs will run like 2.0G but still 4Mb L2, 1333FSB, which should be better than e2140 w/giga p35.

this is why i decide to go for that combo. I am not sure this is right. and i can not get a nice review for it.




Still, do not get an ECS mobo! You'll ONLY have problems with it! I would recommend the following combination:

Gigabyte P35-S3G = 80$

Intel E2140 = 75$

Maybe I got lucky but I have had, and still have one ECS MB folding 24/7, there are not much options for OC but I have not had any problems yet....
