Looking to build a new computer, 64bit of course. I just had a few questions before i ran head long into it (don't have money to throw away..and tax season only comes so often..)
My parts list is looking like this::
1GB corsair pc3200
AMD Athlon 64 3200
ATI Sapphire Radeon X1600 Pro 256mb
ATI works fine on an Nvidia chipset right?? Always used VIA till now..
I've notice a few people claim to have probs with the A8N del...but all the consumer reviews have been positve....everyone's thoughts??
Is the Sapphire a good brand....can't find any consumer reviews on it..
1. Yes An ATI Card Will Work With An Nvidia Chipset
2. Just Becuase Some Pepole Have Problems With A Certain MOBO Dont Mean That You Will, And If You Order It From The Right Place You Can Return It (To Ither The Store/Website Or Manufacturer)
3. Yes Sapphire Is A DECENT Brand
(It Will Overclock Stable Clear Up To DDR500 Speeds!!! @ CAS 3-4-4-7 2.9v) I Borrowed Some From A Friend Before I Got Mine And Thats Why I Know It Will Hit DDR500 Speeds (Mines The Same RAM But Its A Bit Faster [DDR466] )
pretty much just the main guts gettin upgraded...already have a new cd-rw/DVD-rom combo, and will have a DVD burner DL soon....psu is ok, and you never need a new floppy.....gonna be using for gamming (not super stuff mind you....just es4 blivion, mabey wow(soon, i hope..), and some older games...)
