- a little gaming
- chess playing/chess database.
- I will OC but not hard (FSB to 333MHz)
So far I purchased:
INTEL C2D E6300 1.86 S775 OEM = $160
BIOSTAR TForce965PT 775 = $105
Antec Sonata II + 450W SP2 ATX = $50
I am trying to put together a budget system, and still need to buy
RAM, HD, GPU, DVD, + monitor. Trying for under $525 for these.
I guess I should get some DDR2 667, but which one? Also, need advice
on GPU. There were some suggestions, but newegg is out of stock on
the eVGA card people suggested. Wait? Also, will the PSU be enough?
I will only have 1 DVD, 1 HD, and I don't need an enormously fast GPU.
I know it's not the best PSU, but I don't intend to OC too hard.
Thanks for the help.
By the way I got the CPU from clubIT.com. Cheap. I believe it dropped further to $150.
As for vid card, depends how much you wanna spend, and how demanding you'll be for gaming. A 7600GS should work for you, but if you can go for a bit more money, then the 7600GT should easily handle anything you'll throw at it. Excellent performance for the price, but depends on your budget. It won't disappoint you though. Otherwise, opt for the cheaper card.
How is it? Anyone see any inconsistencies?
Now I need a little advice to OC this thing to FSB=333. I read wusy's guide. Will I need additional cooling for a mild OC such as this?
Any advice appreciated.
