Hey, well just sold my computer! Well yesterday night..
I got £500 for it. I decided I didn't game enough for the power I had, and I had only filled 75GB worth of space, on the 430GB space I had.
So I got the £500, went out straight after school, and bought a load more parts. I already had the processor, Pentium 4 S478, had it lying around for agers, so I didn't have to buy the processor.
So my specs now are..
Pentium 4 @ 2.00Ghz - (I do plan to overclock)
512MB Dual Channel RAM at 166Mhz (Again, overclocking soon)
80 GB HDD (Maybe, I might get another one if I need it in the future. I spread the 75GB worth of files I had over the network, and put them all on external hard drives with act as NAS - kinda cool)
Got another FX 5500 - Which I will come onto in a minute..
Again, got another Asrock P4 Dual 880 PRO - I loved this board, and they didn't really have anything else in stock.
DVD +/- Burner + Secondary CD Drive
I know you will all be like, well thats just stupid, downgrading your computer, but this is good enough, I dont really game, I only play the odd one, which I can play on max. settings.
GPU: The 5500 I bought is not amazing..128MB memory..so as soon as I had the option, I overclocked it.
Stock, it comes as..
Core Clock Frequency: 250Mhz
Memory Clock Frequency: 332 Mhz
I overclocked this to:
Core Clock Frequency: 315Mhz
Memory Clock Frequency: 450Mhz
Im rather happy with that, what do you guys think? Again, ill prob. go and overclock more, but is that an OK overclock?
I haven't been on here alot lately I am sorry to say...I've been working on opening my forum, which is going to be good once we get more members. Im back as I used to be now, ready and keen to post
