HELP! More RAM and Video Power for my Flux-Capacitor Needed!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
To whom is may concern...

And please no comments like "JUNK IT" and buy a new one.. This is NOT DOABLE with all these "Little Shavers" screaming for Cheap Chinese Garbage this time of year limits my funds mad.gif

I currently OWN a Written exactly as -- P45 Neo 3 MS-7514 VER: 1.0

The MSI Website DOES NOT list my board exactly and lists these below instead:
P43 Neo3-F (PCB 1.0): http://us.msi.com/product/mb/P43-Neo3-F--PCB-1-0-.html

--OR--

P43 Neo3-FR (PCB 1.1): http://us.msi.com/product/mb/P45-Neo3-FR--PCB-1-0-.html

My board does not have the -FR or the -F so, I am guessing that they are added doo-dads to my existing board.

This is Mine exactly listed here.. Notice the lack of -FR or -F



I would like to max out the ram with either OCZ, Mushkin, or Corsair 1066 4gb per chip at a total of 16gb
ALSO.. I want to beef up the video card but, these parts are hard to come by.

I need a Dual DVI video card because having used 21" and 42" Monitors.. I could never go back to one monitor.
Something able to handle all the latest updated games would be nice as well..

Are there ANY GURU God's or God lackeys (s) that can point me to some links or updates?

Hugs,, Geekette`

Any specific reason you want that much RAM? My suggestion would to to go for 8GB (Four 2GB sticks) instead of 16GB. 4GB sticks of DDR2 weren't as common, it will be a lot easier to get some 2GB sticks. I'm assuming you're aware of this because you listed a speed you wanted, but your motherboard can't take the newer DDR3 memory. You also can't get "so-dimm" DDR2, as that's for laptops. Otherwise, any DDR2 1066 or DDR2 800 should work.

For the video card, pretty much any PCI express card will work. Here is a ranking of graphics cards, so if you see one in your price range you can see how it compares to others: http://www.overclock.net/t/502403/graphics-card-ranking-5th-time-and-last-updated-daily

The best way to get both would be to get them used. You can browse the OCN for sale section (http://www.overclock.net/f/14303/for-sale-wanted), and look on craigslist/ebay etc. You can't make a thread in the wanted section until you get 35 rep points, but you can PM people who are selling and buy from them.

Thanks for the INFO!

 

I've made an executive decision and purchase the below goodies - Thoughts??? It has made a huge difference!

 

NOW.. Get this!

Last night my power went out and when I woke up this AM everything was blinking 12:00 etc.. And when I power everything back on my 42" L.E.D. TV is dead as a door nail. It is an AKAI cheap-o I found in the trash. I know electronics purty` good and simply sucked out the bad (meant to die) Chinese parts and put in new gooder-ones. Wah-Lah! It has worked for about 4yrs, until this morning.
Replacing the capacitors at location numbers C301 C280, C302, C320, C323 - 100UF 35 VOLTS held up a long time for picken through the trash.

I am fairly sure the power supply bit-the-dust this time, as it does NOTHING! I still need to take the back off and `slap it around a bit though and see if I can maybe replace that instead of buying a new TV. *kicking Dirt*

Such is life!
So, how does one gain REP points anyway? My Computer skills have lapsed because everything has changed so much since my bench days of blowing up puters'.  DX4/100 Was Top  Notch last time I was hooked to static line.

I have an Associate in CIS and partial Bachelor in CS I never finished. Once I got a dedicated up and running and plugged in my Merchant ID, It was easy pickens..

I worked at Lexis-Nexis Data Center at the time and part time as Head Bench Tech at BPCS (Business Personal Computer Systems) and also was taking night classes toward my Bachelor and walked out of everything after 8months of my BSD Dedicated running nightly batches (MID / TID). 8months and no end in sight... Those were the days! Now, I am just lucky to scrape by..

Any suggestions "IF" I must get a New TV?  I Know L.E.D. are best for PC use as they are not as susceptible to screen burn.

 

Thanks in Advance!

 

Geforce 9800GT vs. GV-N58OUD-3GI

 

Corsair 750 vs. AGI 550

 

Adding:
As for the RAM.. You're right of course.. DDR2/800 8GB is plenty till I get a new M/B, CPU etc..

What CPU are you using on your 775 board? I'm thinking that nothing but a highly clocked Q2D will bottleneck your GPU.. To what extent, hard to say..
