I just got back into the computer thing!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just ordered all my components and have some as you see below to replace my current system. I currently use a AMD athlon XP 1700+ throughbred with a crappy albatron board with a km266chipset my friend gave me, told me it had some smoke coming out of a ram slot at one time, unfortunately only one ram slot works of course, I have a stick of DDR 266 in the second slot. I also bumped the mem clock up to 140 from 133 which brings the processor up only about 100mhz. I have a MSI Ti4200 in it and its shot and doesn't have the power to play games so good anymore thus the reason I bought the components to build the system below, hopefully it will run much better! anyways I would like to get my pentium D 805 to 3.3ghz on the stock intel cooler hopefully it will work ok anyways look forward to posting on the site.

Seems fine, but i'd suggest a bit more ram for that system, 2 gb's would kick it nice.

But thats just me, Have fun building!

Devon, DEFINITELY spend the extra $20 and get a 7600GT instead of a 7600GS. The performance difference is about doubled once you volt mod and overclock the 7600GT. The 7600gt is the best bang for the buck card out there IMO. I had one and loved it. I like it better than my card now for $105.

well i bought the 7600gs used on ebay for 51 buck 60 shipped so it was a very good deal has orignal box and all the software that should come with it like the brother in arms road to hill 30 comes with it so its basically a openbox card but at a very cheap price, if it sucks I could just resale it and buy a 7900gs.

One simple Suggestion? I got back in about 6 months ago.. and could have saved myself about $700 if I had known about this site back then and had read a lot and asked a lot of questions!

I am finally where I want to be for now, but it was a lot harder and more expensive and frustrating than it had to be.

Welcome!!
