Default Re: Future Build - Your Thoughts

On some tests, an 5:4 ratio is faster than 1:1 ratio, but the 1:1 give you better timings, and more stable your ram becomes.
the chipsets also seem kind of old.

How much are you planning to save up for your future build?
Well I am using $300 out of the money that the college gave me. Then I figure I might get a couple hundred for the computer I gave Mom since, well the one I got has a shot motherboard and had to put the hard drive in my computer as a second hard drive. I may try to weasel out a couple hundred more, so around $600-700.

After taking another look at that mobo, I saw that it only supports 4GB of RAM, so I found this mobo instead. Supports 8GB, ATX form factor, and supports C2D. (I feel that a C2Q is too much for what I need it for)
