I've decided to rebuild my computer with a new cpu, mobo, memory, and case.
AMD Athlon 64 3200+, 512KB L2 Cache, Socket 939 64-bit
$196.00 + $0.00 shipping = $196.00
MSI "RS480M2-IL" ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Chipset Motherboard
$89.00 + $3.00 shipping = $92.00
E-Power WARRIOR Silver ATX Mid Tower With 450W PSU & Side panel net window, Model "EPC-523SC-450A "
$78.99 + $15.99 shipping = $94.98
5.25" Enermax UC-A5FATR2 Aluminum 6-Channel Fan Speed Controller w/Temp. Alarm LCD Display (Hard Drive Mountable) (Silver)
$26.99 + $7.00 80mm Sunon Case Fan + $7.16 = $41.15
Geil Ultra Series Value Dual Channel 184 Pin 1GB(512MBx2) DDR PC-3200 w/ Blue Heatspreader
$142.50 + $4.33 shipping = $146.83
Grand Total = $570.96
But there is one thing I'm afraid of, I don't know if my monitor will be able to handle the higher resolutions and framerates. I have an emachines eView 17f2. It says max resolution is 1280x1024 at 60hz. Do i have to buy a new monitor to take advantage of my new graphics mobo and cpu?
