I just bought a new trial system and I would like to know if you think it's well balanced (that is I would get as little bottleneck as possible).
MSI k8n neo3f (nforce4)
Athlon 64 2800
512 mb ram 400mhz kingston
MSI nx6600gt td128e pcie
SATA 160 gb
mostly depends on what you want to do with it (gaming, video editing, etc), but from what I see looks pretty upgradable and mostly future proof. with things like socket 939 and PCI-E, you can throw in more power as you get more funds to upgrade.
personaly from what I see, I would recomend getting a second 512 stick of memory to take advantage of Dual Channel, as well as having a gig for the more memory intensive apps. after that, video card and proc as available, in that order. for now thou, I dont see any problems for general usage/light gaming. anyone concur?
Thanks a lot, I want to use it for gaming... I tried some games like NFS Most wanted and worked fine... I`ll buy 512mb certainly...
I wasn`t sure if the video card was gonna be enough for gaming but it works ok...
