This will mainly be used for gaming, btw.
This is what i'm getting rid of/selling
(prices reflect neweggs retail)
AMD XP 2800 Barton = $106
Asus A7N8X-Delux = $92
Evil Commando II Radeon 9700 Pro video card = $115
Thermaltake Xaser II case (Japanese Steel, not aluminum) = $115
52X Lite-on CDRW drive = $27
512MB Corsair XMS PC3200 RAM = $70
FSP Fortron 350w PSU = $35
I'll probably sell it all, already built, for $400. All anyone needs to do is pop in their Harddrive and its good to go.
This is my newegg wishlist to replace these parts some day =)
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard
Rosewill Radeon X800XL 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express x16 Video Card
POWMAX PSDE580 ATX 580W Power Supply
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester Integrated into Chip FSB Socket 939 $182.99
Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 73GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive
LITE-ON SOHW-1653S BLK OEM Black IDE DVD Burner
Roughly $850. I've never owned a fast HD, so the raptor should be nice. The powersupply, although *very* cheap for its specs, has over 100 positive reviews. The X800XL seems like the best vid card for me since I mainly enjoy CS source and Battlefield (both which run better on this than the more expensive 6800 GT), and lastly the mobo is supposed to be a GREAT oc'er and gaming board.
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
NO to the Motherboard, NO to Harddrive, NO to the PowerSupply (POWMAX SUX!!!!). Here is my recommendation list for you. Have fun. BTW, I would recommend you get RAM, so I will make a recommendation on new DDR PC3200 LOW LATENCY RAM that is VERY GOOD price and performance wise, Patriot.
THE ABIT FATALITY MOTHERBOARD!!!
Aspire 500Watt X PSU!
Patriot DDR400 PC3200 LOW LATENCY!
DO NOT GET WESTERN DIGITAL, THEY SUCK!! GET THIS INSTEAD!
Maxtor 120GB SATA 150 DiamondMAX 9 with NQC!
Keep that GPU and Processor, and you will be a VERY HAPPY PERSON!
