Builing a rig around my new Video card... x1800xt 512MB - Page 2

thanks for all the advice guys..
I ordered what I could with the money I had...

TUL AX480A-GF Socket 939 ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz HT Socket 939 Processor
SAPPHIRE 100134L Radeon X1800XT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black ATX Mid Tower
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro Cooling Fan with Heatsink

I'm pretty psyched about my first AMD build... but I am also flat broke... As soon as this is put together, I'm gonna take the RAM and HD from my current build and scrap it for parts so i can EAT!!

now... any predictions based on my purchases how high I'm gonna be able to get my cpu?

nice purchase.. i think the 3700+ should work great for ya. i wouldnt do that memory because your gonna want to run ddr. id get some decent quality memory 2x512 package.. or even better a 2x1gb.. if you have the loot. using a high end memory will allow you to overclock alot better in the future.. and run faster now... id suggest
