Newbie looking for help build upgradeable, long-lasting system - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Thread Starter 
And About the Video Card. I will check out the mobo, and if it's worth it, Why not use the an absolutely free video card for as long as I can?

And as for gaming... I'm currently using an integrated 256mb on a laptop... I mean I only play lower-end games like WoW and stuff, and x16 anti aliasing and all that would be nice, but it's not a huge deal.

+Rep to michinmuri as well for all the help.

I think I'm going to research my board that I have planned in my current build, and if not, I'll probably stick with a cheaper Asus. (The reason I chose a DDR3 board with DDR2 RAM is because The board was from what I saw an uber deal, yet DDR3 RAM is really expensive. But I will for sure throw in a stick or two later on. I also think the 100w is a little overkill, but if I have the extra cash I may go for it.

Also, I might be interested in that RAM you are trying to sell.

+Rep, you deserve it.
And intel boards are a really bad idea if you want to overclock. Get a DFI P35 based board and an 8800GT GPU, much better deal. The 2600xt is a pretty poor performer in games compared to the 8800GT.

The RAM you found is top notch, go for that.

Never a problem to help. I was in your shoes a handful of moons ago. Just take your time and make purchases you feel good about an things should fall into place.
