Your Say - Socket 939 Computer Specs
OK, so I just thought that maybe I could get some suggestions from all you loyal AMD supporters out there. My budget is max £550, and these are my ideas :
Abit AX8 with Guru clock
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 90nm Venice core
120GB hard drive
I need the rest. The graphics card does not have to be amazing, most probably the most intense game I will be playing before Christmas is Age of Empires 2.
My only problem is with the Venice core. I know that the for a while after the Winchester core came out AMD were still perfecting their fabricating process, meaning the first CPUs off the line were not as good as the ones now. So I thought if I bought a 2800+ Winchester core after the Venices came out, and got it for £60, then when the Venice cores have improved I will get one of them, and then use the 2800+ for purely overclocking purposes.
What do you guys and gals think, and do you have any ideas for the specs for my new pc?
