S3RK's AMD iCute build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, This wasn't really a build seeing as I've had the motherboard & CPU for 3+ years although it keeps up with the latest games being released to date.

Let's get right into it!

Specifications:
HDD IDE Master: Maxtor 40 Gig HDD
HDD IDE Slave: Western Digital 500 Gig HDD
DVD Rom: None (Haha, I'll buy another one soon as I don't use them for nothing at the moment.)
RAM: 1x DDR1 Kingston 1 Gig, 1x DDR1 512mb
CPU: AMD Sempron 3200+ (1.8ghz single cored)
Graphics Card: Palit 9800 GT 512mb
Mother Board: Asus K8V-VM Series (1 - PCIe x16 slot, 2~3 PCI slots, 2 DDR1 Ram slots, 2 SATA slots)
PSU: CoolerMaster 600w
Case: iCute ZL08
OS: Windows XP Professional SP2or3?

Sorry about bad photo quality, these were taken from a mobile. I will take more High Def pictures later.





It is impossible for me to achieve a temperature anywhere within the computer above 50c. I've tried running games @ highest quality textures, AA highest. Everything highest, yet no success. Take note this is a good thing!!!

Update:
Hi guys, I've decided I would do some Cable Management for my little beast . I didn't take any before pictures as I forgot, but I did take some half-way through and after. The reason I done Cable Management is because I couldn't even install my DVD-ROM with the amount of cables in the way, I looked on some other threads previously and seen that they used the other side of the case to put the cables through. I'm 14 Years Old so don't say it's crap, it's a lot better than before!






It is also fairly hot the today which is why my Temps are higher than previously!

Leave comments, questions & suggestions below please .

Kind Regards

Good luck, though I doubt you will be able to run much on highest settings, try cod 4, that game is absolutely wonderful at running on older systems. I ran it on a system with a more powerful cpu and ram, but an 8600gt on highest settings like butter, although, that 1.8ghz is quite a bottleneck for a 9800gt.

Nice, but that case made me throw up a little. You should really get a dual core to pair with that 9800GT, otherwise a bottleneck..

Get the 5200+. Rave reviews about that. And it's cheap apparently.
