best buy for 300-350e???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok guys, well is there a fine best buy for 300-350e max?
At my place there is a: Midi ATX 400W
Asus M2V SAM2 green
Athlon 3200+ sAM2
DDRAM2 512MB Brand PC533MHz
GeForce 7100GS 256MB PCIE
80GB WD/Maxtor SATA
...for less than 300e

So is this a good configuration, cause I heard that this graph card sucks and also the mainbord is crappy?

P.S. Is it better to buy maximum amd Athlon like 3500+, or some dual core similar, or about that range?
Whats the difference and which and why is better?

It may be better to buy a dual core like the Pentium D 805 in a combo with a motherboard and ram or something like that. I suggest ebay, since i dont know any stores that can ship to your country, plus ebay usually has Dead on arrival policies. A combo like this:

Pentium D 915+ecs mobo 150$ US
2GB DDR2 667 for 66$
250GB samsug sata drive 60$
8600GT 256MB DDR3 Direct X10 card for 160$

total 436$ US shipped, no tax on ebay.
The exchange rate as of now is 1.33 US $ for each 1 euro dollar
so it comes to about 328 Euro dollars.
Why i recommend these parts?

- The cpu and motherboard will support ddr2, dual core and core 2 duo, which if you plan to do any cpu intensive task is better for that price.

-The video card will support directX 10. mind you that price is about 50$ more than the 7100GS, if you do any gaming, i will not subject you to the torture of a 7100GS

-the hard drive? well, three times more storage for 10$ extra? what can I say?

- the memory? well, since windows xp will soon not be supported, windows vista will be the new standard. and if you ahve less than 2 gb of ram, well, vista will be slow...


Can you show me lists of online websites in your country you can buy from so I can lookaround?

Don't get a pentium D. You can get a E4300 combo for less.

Later when you get the cash get a better board and O.C. to 3 Ghz easy!

Core 2 duo architecture is way better than the old netburst stuff.

Even better get this combo. AMD is better price to performance ratio. Plus this board and chip should hit three with a better cooler.:

BOARD: http://cgi.ebay.com/Biostar-TFORCE-5...QQcmdZViewItem

Ok, but this is an amd forum so I`m looking for that kind of build,
And also I heard that GF7600GT 256mb gives a fine gaming expirience, althought I don`t suffer much for turbo details...?
