I've been working on an upgrade for my computer rig. Currently running a amd xp 2800+ with >1 GB ram.
What I'm considering:
My main purpose for my computer is hard video editing, autoring, encoding/transcoding. Also I do heavy image editing and experiment with webservers and the such.Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-965P-S3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6400 - Retail
G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4S-1GBPK - Retail
Koutech IO-PIR133 PCI IDE Controller Card - Retail
(I don't have enough ide motherboard connectors)
FREETECH PX6200TD-128M GeForce 6200 128MB DDR PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
(I wanted cheap, but acceptable. My current card is AGP)
Anyone have any suggestions or critiques?
Should I be thinking about the fact that the stock cpu cooler might really suck and need to invest a few bucks for a different cooler?
Or maybe a cheaper or more acceptable video card (I'm not heavy into pc games, but I go multi-out a lot)
Incompatable ram, or too expensive ram for not enough performance?
