As many of you know im going to be building my 64bit pc this summer time, iv had a little look around and iv got a few parts in m head of what i want.
Still undecided is the RAM, CASE and MOBO and ofcourse any parts you think would be better than what i have choose. This is what im thinking of getting:
For the RAM im unsure weather to get 1 stick of 512mb of something really good like Samsung, or Kingston PC3200 Ram, or maybe get two sticks of slower 512mb RAM. Price is very important so could someone link me up with a cost effective solution to my RAM problem.CPU
AMD Athlon 64 Bit 3200/1 Mb L2 cache 754Pin CPU OEM
Gigabyte GA-k8vt800 S754 VIA K8T800 Sound LAN USB 2.0 FSB800 ATA133 Retail Box
Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 PRO 128 MB DDR 8x AGP DVi & TV-Out
Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 160Gb 7200rpm 8mb Cache ATA133 Hard Drive – OEM
Case needs to have side window, support my choosen motherboard or one that you have choose, must be no more than £35 including VAT. Must have lots of bays, look pritty good, PSU is undecided because i have a 400WATT one in this pc so if i only get a 300WATT one with the case i will spaw them over.
Motherboard must be 64bit, have onboard high speed lan, USB 2.0, 1 X AGP Slot, at least 4 X PCI, would need to take up to about 1.5-2GB RAM, i would like more than 2 slots for RAM but whatever. Onboard sound must be included. Onboard graphics is not nessacery, if it comes with shit on board graphics i don't care.
Please i know your going to say wait for PCI-Express but i think they are going to be to much money and they will force AGP prices to fall so that price for my Graphics card will proberly fall.
