Recommended Posts

well my atlonXP system is showing its age, so im puting it to rest.

i cant afford socket939 but i want 64-bit, my summer job wont make me enough before school starts back, im carrying everything in my SIG over execpt for my PSU, and GPU.

here is what i haved planed:






total with shipping:


i have a $850.00 MAX budget, not a bit more BTW.


also my gramps think im BS'in him, can someone please explain to him why spending anymore money on SocketA is foolish?

THX, angry, im going for those parts you recomended now.

what is the difference between newcastle and clawhammer?

is it kinda like the T-Bred and Barton, like the clawhammer just has more cache but is the same as newcastle?


well the new total is $787.46 :D

yep, newcaslte = 512k L2, Clawhammer = 1MB L2


not really much difference...if you are really wanting to overclock, I saw a mobile 3200/3400 clawhammer between the price of the 3400 NC and the 3700


but i always get retail cpu's with 3 year warranties ;)


i use Enermax adjustable 92mm fans (i always buy my heatsinks/fans from www.svc.com...the XP-90 is only $24.99 there)
