Secundart PC(with OCN For sale Parts)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a secundary pc because my dad doesn't let me take full use of this one(there's som esoftware he won't let me install, and i need a server for my CSS clan(we're a bunvh of noobs )
So i was thinking of getting used parts here at ocn so i can get the best bang for the buck.
I was leaning AMD because my budget is 100/125(can go until 150, but......).
Since amd's cpu's had the best performance i think they will be more usefull to me.
What can you guys recommend?
I will not use it for gaming(probably) so my gfx will be the cheapest i can find(a Radeon 7000 will do)
thanks

If its for a css server. I would say get as much ram as you can get your hands on along with a pretty hot AM2 chip... or go conroe if you dont mind...

here are just a few options on cpu's new from a u.s. site, just to give you an idea on your options...

this one is a e6320 intel chip. It is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more cpu than the hottest AMD (when oc'ed) right now...

Here is a nice AM2 chip that oc's very nice... and is more affordable. Its arround 60 bucks new right now, so a used one will be a little less, but good luck finding one

If you are leaning twards the AM2 chip, do NOT go cheap on the motherboard. Get one that has a good oc'ing ability... its pretty much FREE preformance, so theres no reason why you shouldnt oc.... on this cpu...

I was really looking forward to get used parts.
I already know of the overclockability of conroes and Penryn's but i need to save some money.
I think a single core cpu can handle hit.
A 3200+ maybe?
about ram i'll start with 512mb an add a new stick later.
Don't know about mobo.
I can't find a cheap hdd or PSU for sale here.
Am2 is not a requirement because, it's really just a secundary pc.
Our clan only has 6 members and it's just a temporary server after i'll use the pc to play at gigs(i'm a beginner Dj).
It's not gonna be a muscle pc.
Just a pc.
If i had more $ i would invest in mine.
