What should i get for this config?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I will be getting this rig in a few weeks and i would like to know if anything is bad or if it isnt oc'able, I think the mobo should be changed but i dont wanna pay much more.


Here is config:
WINTEC AMPO 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM System Memory
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor - Retail
ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Thats all that could be a problem. I will have the rest of the stuff but i know the stuff is good.So can anyone suggest if there will be a problem with the core stuff?

TY,
Mr~Anarchie

First, are you purchasing this rig in the near future? In parts or in whole?

If you ARE purchasing it in parts, whats your budget and what are you hoping to do with the rig? (overclock, games, both, etc)

First things first...ditch that ram. I have never heard of it, which is usually not a good thing.

Not to be rude or anything, but your rig looks a bit on the cheap side. You processor is a good choice, and you mobo is "ok", but that ram, IDK, it is just not good. If I were you I would save up for a better system.

EDIT: YES your ram=baad

If you are really broke, but want good ram, this is the stuff. It is really cheap and it has good reviews. But idk if it is for you or not.

My budget is around 400$ no need for GFX card at the moment though. I will prolly have a 6600. So 400$ is what i want to spend. Preferably an AMD cpu as that is what i view as better cpu. So can u try to put together a decent comp for gaming but not have a gfx card or ram.

Ty,

ummm.....do you REALLY want to get an ASROCK MOBO? I've never had any good with them, only bad. Had ever one had stability issues then BAM....sparks and overheating and the works....i would fo tieh an ECS elitegroup mobo....good performance and won;t break the bank.

400 bucks is a good start. What else will be required? Case, psu, motherboard, hard drive, cd rom, etc? Or will you be canibalizing items from your other system?

The more we know, the more we can help
