Re: first time build....
True... but by the time you wait for the price to drop, new CPUs, video cards, etc. are already out. Man I hate that.
I think we are all due for a new overhaul on our old machines. I figured my Athlon 64 3500+, Corsair XMS, and 6600GT is due. The Geil ONE RAM is faster. The 7800GTX is faster with more RAM. The CPU is well, way better with dual core technology. I've got an ancient system. Time to put this baby in the museum...
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
