    well im building a new computer and sellin my 2.4P4 and i need some advice. first off i need to know if these basics the CPU MOBO and Memory would go good together?

    CPU: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetai...tCode=80646-800

    MoBo: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetai...ductCode=246217

    Memory: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetai...ctCode=80098-22

    if your wondering why im going with an P4 2.4 with 800 FSB is cause they have great over clocking capabliltys. my second question is do Segate or Western Digital have better HDD's? i would like to aviod a failing HDD.also i might downgrade the memory to DDR 333 instead od DDR 400 for becuz of the price but im not sure.

    I know the price is higher, but I'd stay with the ddr 400.

    Also, I really can't say about them anymore, but back in the day of 4 - 10 gig hard drives, Seagate really sucked. I worked for a company then that put them in audio devices. About 1 out 3 were DOA, and the rest would screw up soon there after.
    I can't really say, about their newer drives, but if it were me, I'd choose a Western Digital or Maxtor HDD.

    I really like the Seagate drives. Absolutely silent.

    everything looks nice, but I think you could get some ram with a lower CAS latency.

    thanks for your comments. and i'll look into lower lantency RAM to see if i can get a good price. im trying to keep the basics of the computer minus the Video card under a grand and right now i have all that at about 820 dollars. with the case its about 870.

    The guys at my local computer shop won't use anything but Seagate.

    They swear by them and swear at everything else.

    They do tend to be pricier though.

    He could save some money if he went wth a "gAyMD" processor and OC it a bit to get to 2.4GHz .

    The "gAyMD" in his sig indicates that it is not a viable option apparently.
