Hello everyone. I'm new here and to the computer forum in general. I'm a member at various car forums (03 Corolla), but this is my first computer forum.
Anyways, what car lover doesn't like computers? THey're soooo related in every way. I modify my car like I modify my computer but the car tends to be a bit more expensive especially after I added the TRD Supercharger to my Corolla.
I've built 4 systems in the last 2 years, all MSI board supporting AMD (Barton core mainly using Athlon XP's). I am in the process of building my fifth system, this time using Intel hopefully in January. I find that prices are pretty competitve now than before. I thought about going the 64-bit route with the new Athlons, but found the new P4 Hypertransport, err, Hyperthreading LGA 775 processor is just as capable and the supporting chipsets are so widespread in supporting dual channel DDR2 and PCIe. Plus, Intel's coming out with new dual core processors next year. I've looked up parts already and do my shopping off of www.newegg.com
. They have the best deals and great serivce/delivery.
I hope to get lots of info here. Oh, and I also plan on my first ever RAID 0 SATA setup. So give me some tips here, hehe. I'll search also.
