free $400 gift

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
A guy I know is insanely rich (the same guy who just gave me back my old computer's gfx) and I asked if he'd buy me the 4200+. He said he'd give me the cash for it! Jesus!

So I'm thinking I'll get another gig of ram and the 3800+. Sound good? It will come out to about $425.

holy crap you luck duck! does he live in a mansion? that is pretty sick LOL and really generous of him, you should do something to repay him (be his pc repair dude or something like that.) By the way how did you come onto the subject of asking for an x4200?

I'd get the 4200 and wait on the ram until you can afford it. The 4200 is a better chip and this way also allows you a small upgrade path. The other way, you don't have an easy upgrade anywhere down the road. Just my .02 but consider it. The benches show the 4200 to be a decent step up.

I'd be overclocking... this mobo can get to 240, so I'd have a guaranteed 2.4 on the 3800 assuming the CPU could handle it... it better handle 2.4

edit: This guy has an ungodly amount of money.
