Hey guys, going to upgrade my computer tomorrow through Memory Express (http://www.memoryexpress.com)
. My current computer is about 2 years old, and while is sufficient, I want to get into gaming a bit (nothing too crazy) and will have to upgrade. Im getting mostly new components, and using some from the previous system to save on money, as im not a serious gamer. Heres what im going for:
Motherboard: ASUS P5K-SE w/DualDDR2 1066, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, PCCI-E x16 ($104.95)
Processor: Intel Core Duo Processor E8400 3.00gHz w/6MB cache ($229.95)
Memory: Crucial BallistiX 2GB PC2-6400 Dual Channel DDR2 kit (2x1 GB) ($34.95)
Hard Drive (from old computer): MAXTOR 300GB 7200RPM SATA2 16MB
Power Supply: OCZ 600W StealthxStream Power Supply w/Quad +12V ($64.95)
Video Card: eVGA e-GeForce 9600 GT SuperClocked 512 MB PCI-E w/Dual DVI ($169.95) - Was thinking this or the 8800 series? Opinons?
Case: ANTEC Nine Hundred Ultimate Gamer Case ($109.95)
Other (used from old computer): Vantec all in 1 USB 2.0 Card Reader,
BenQ DW1655-BK Lightscribe DVD RW
Was just wondering what you guys think, and if Im going to have any issues, this is what the salesman set me up with for a decent mid-high range computer for my needs. If you guys notice anything from the website that has a better bang for the buck I could use in lieu of, please let me know (ie. something that costs like 20 bucks extra for a ton of extra performance). Also was wondering If i need a sound card, I have 2.1 speakers and its fine the way it is for me, opinions?
Thanks for the help all.
