wanting to build new computer?(gamer)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ok ove got a ecs mobo with amd athlonxp 2800 running 2.1- this is the system i wanna replace

so far i have ordered 2g of ocz pc3200 platinum edition ive ordered a ashrock dual sata2 agp mobo i have a 120g 7200rpm west dig harddrive
my question is what is a good processor dont wanna spent 700 on a processor but want to build a system to watercool and that i will be happy with for a while so i wont have to build another one in 2years also i would like to know if a sata harddrive makes a big enough difference to make it worth getting on because my current drive isnt even 2weeks old i know i will need a new power supply the reason i selected the mobo is i wanted an agp slot because i have a newly acquired ATI X850Pro (which i was unable to unlock the 4 extra pipelines on )
any suggestions would be appreciated i also have a gigabyte GA-K8NS mobo in top of my closet left from recent build for my little brother (he decided to go sli after already ordered, gotta love those brothers lol) if there is a 754 processor anyone thinks would be worth while to use with that board i would go that route and sell the 939 board, any suggestions would be appreciated thanks

well you'd honestly be better off getting a pcie express gfx card.

I'd suggest you go w/ a 3700+ SD for about 230. Get a DFI mobo, a 7800GT.

and yes, I do personally think taht SATA drives are better, however you'll be alright w/ your ultra ata drive.
