Yay! ANOTHER NEW PC BUILD ! =D

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Well my dad hasnt had a good computer for awile. His last desktop was a P3 800MHz with 256MB of ram and an nvidia FX5600XT 128MB AGP gpu. It was good back in the day, but it (FINALLY) died after so many years.

And so after the old machine died, I asked him if he would like me to build him a new one, he agreed. SPECS!



The gpu was 55$ off cause of clearance pricing, mobo and ram were on sale too.

CPU will be my E6600 that I have now (since Q6600 is on its way to my doorstep) with my old cpu cooler (OCZ Vindicator) , il have it sitting at 3 - 3.2GHz.

So what y'all think?

EDIT: PICS OF IT BEING BUILT ARE COMING SOON!!! STAY TUNED!!

Everybody loves new stuff

Looks good. Though, maybe a different DVD burner, well that is me, since I do not know that brand or ever tried it. ><; There are also better cases, but I guess it all depends on how you like the looks.

That's how I feel when I can build my father a new computer. He's always like, you can just give me your old computer and I will be happy, but I feel bad if he does not get the better stuff.

Try to make them put 20 more cents.

Not sure. I seriously never heard of it. I guess it's a very good company? I guess I have to try it out myself too...


Hey? Maybe Tricky's father will or Tricky will? It is always better to have a computer to last long anyways. Did you read a P3... Meaning the computer lasted long and this computer should last long for Tricky's father too.

edit:

I guessed right. :Thumbs:


What OS?
If vista, should maybe get 4GB of ram, or maybe wait for future upgrades for that.

change the PSU to :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139003
and if you have the money change the GFX to an 8800GT

Why would I do all that. Ram is fine, there wont be any overclocking on it, psu?? Why psu, there is no need as that 500w OCZSXS has 18A rails and 500w. 8800GT? Why? I would of if they costed around the same, but im paying 55$ less here (199.99!!) cause theyres 20 left and they have a clearance sale.

Only thing that will be OC'd is the cpu and the gpu if needed.
