I will later on down the line. which is why Im learning all that I can.
If you aren't experienced enough to make it yourself, try and find a friend or work colleague that is capable and let them help you build it.
Oh, i think this should be in the tech discussion. *moves*
Hmmmm... don't like that onboard VGA stuff, would stay away from that. It's fine for surfing and typing a letter but gaming.....:barf: Here's a review of that board: http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/mobos/Chaintech%20NIF72/pg_7.htm
try upgrading the sound card to an Audigy 2....or get someone else to pick your parts for you if you're ot sure what to pick. A wrong/bad choice could cost you performance or quality that you could've gotten but didn't.
And make sure you have at least 512mb (preferably 1 gig) of RAM and a top-notch vid card (Geforce FX or Radeon 9700+)
go with 1gig ram & get a 9800pro & that should be a lovely system tbh
5200-5500 graphic card suck...get a 5600 or better.
No get the N-vidia 6800ultra or ATI 800XT(i think that is the name)
Thanks for the replies. If I focused on the Memory and Graphics card will that be the best thing to do?
And Im 18 so I dont have any one really expierienced in this small town that I live in.
its not in that selection though... and its the ATI x800 cuase they didnt wanna put '10'800 or something... and those cards are pretty expensive... im ganna wait about a year then buy an 8X agp 6800ultra (mayby the 512ddr version)
Build your own, its reeeeeeeeeeaaaally easy. Companies overcharge you could save a lot by building it yourself.
Here's the ultimate spec that is cool but tooo pricey..,
Athlon 64 3400 Some mobo with the VIA K8T800 chipset GeForce FX 6800ultra or ATI Radeon X800 Pro (I think thats what they call it) 2x 34gig Western Digital Raptors 10,000 rpm SATA (Raid 0 config, install games and OS) 150 gig or bigger 7200 rpm IDE drive (for the bulk storage, like music and movies) 1gb PC3200 Ram PC Power and Cooling 410watt Silencer Power Supply
