Does anyone have any idea of an online shop that is still selling a DFI lan Party CFX 3200 mobo, newegg no longer has them on their list, and they have also sold out on all of their low latency ram (except the GeIL) ie so could you please let me know if you see any, ~$180 for the mobo and ~$170 for the ram.

I hate anyone who just bought one of those boards or some of that ram.

Low latency?? How's 46.5ns,that is with OCZ's 3500 gold xtc [ddr]@ 2.5,2,2,5.
Try it you'll like it....

I'm looking for or lower, but thanks. I was going for some platinum elites, but the 6 is not sitting well with me.

Don't. SuperTalent isnt some kind of wonderful company that will produce they best possible modules in every situation. They simply added a truck load of highly binned chips in some of their DDR2 (not even all of them) modules.

South Africa's power supply is prone to some nasty spikes so i want something rated for maximum performance at a low voltage so if the spanner hits the turbine (it actually happened recently and all of Capetown was unpowered for quite some time) my pc will survive. SO i will pay the extra to have something that will survive, you need extra tough stuff if you want it to work here, eskom(the power company) is very good at taking out laptop screens, 2 of my bro's died and a few friends' too. Not sure if i am correct about this but better to err on the side of caution.

That DFI board you mention can be found via Froogle at a few different lesser known vendors. Too bad DFI makes the only AM2 Crossfire board with three PCI slots.

For the power supply issue i recommend a UPS.
December 23, 2006 6:05:34 PM

I'm going 939, for an fx 57, So AM2 is not happening for me unfortunately.

About the ups, good idea but i keep telling my friend how gay his ups is so i am going to look like such a hypocrite.

Uninterruptable powersupply :)  Has a small fusion generator inside it so dropping it is a no no.

Here is some CAS 1.5 stuff from Geil

One Series 2X512 1.5 - 2 - 2 - 5

ChiefValue has prices that compare with the egg in many respects.
December 23, 2006 6:16:54 PM

This is kind of a last hail to single core so i am getting the fastest single cpu, fastest ddr1 and best 939 motherboard and maybe an x1950 to be later supplemented with an r600
December 23, 2006 6:20:18 PM

If newegg still has it by next week will get the geil but i am in poland right now so i cannot do anything which sucks ass, i came here for a nice white cristmas and there is no bloody snow and now i am being prevented from getting my pc, bloody east europe.
December 23, 2006 6:32:34 PM

I know i am being a bit of a dumbass but i can always just get and fx 60, when(if) it drops to $300
December 23, 2006 7:49:48 PM

eeh I tought you had the CPU already, which you had gotten for free/very cheap...
December 23, 2006 9:02:46 PM

Nope, still gotta get all the parts, just want to make sure i can get it all at once, and it is likely that i ahve wasted all your time cause i ahve been planning on a new pc for a year already and now when i get back i nedd to get hold of one of my friends who has relatives in america so i can send the parts there so they can send them to SA as newegg does not ship outside the USA. I want my bloody PC!!! Unfortuntely this year i won't get to use it much cause i am taking more subjects than before so i just want it over and done with so i can use a non laggy non shit pc.

Can't afford that... :(  , but as for avoiding intel :D .

(sorrry about the sh*tey spelling on the last post.)
December 24, 2006 12:19:46 PM

Gimme a solid budget on USD, ill make you be able to afford it hehe
December 24, 2006 1:06:06 PM

have fun, but don't say I didn't worn you, because you will be kicking yourself for not getting dual core-- later on when more multi threaded apps become available with vista

Listen to this person! I am still regretting buying an FX55 two years ago. If I had just gotten an x2 4800, I would not currently be considering a dual core CPU upgrade right now. Dammit, dammit, dammit. :?
December 24, 2006 1:47:02 PM

I know dual core is the way to go but i am still getting the fx 57, no point trying to argue that against me, but i know dual / multi core is the way to go but i cannot afford a good dual ( i know a crappy dual is better than a good single) core, i spend 7 rand per dollar and i want a top model so i am going for this cpu. 64 bit was the thing when i got my last pc but it did not last, so i might as well go for an fx as it is the only time i will ever get a crack at one. My pc will not last and i know that. Dual core will not last long either it will be replaced by multi core. SMP is only efficient at 100+ processors so dual core apps have limited life like everything else. I am going for the best of the worst.

The only place I can get my parts sent is unfortunately Kentucky. Please don't kill my dream. :( 

I am also going to clock the crap out of this thing.
December 24, 2006 7:20:23 PM

I'll go for what i can get, the fact that cpu now matters for gpu means i need the fastest.
December 25, 2006 9:43:54 AM

Didn't know that so 4800 here i come, just newegg has none. Ewiz has none. Chiefvalue has none either.

Can't find the damn thing anywhere.

If anyone sees one for about $300 please let me know.
December 25, 2006 1:07:43 PM


sorry, I wish I had told you this like a month ago when stores still had the x2 4800, but the 4400 isn't bad either (if you can find it)

There's still the option of an Opteron dual core. I think they seem to be more available than their X2 equivalents and mostly seem to be similiarly priced (well, they are in the UK, anyway) as well as being a higher quality cpu.

You could get an Opteron 185 which is the same clock as the FX-60, although it doesn't have the unlocked multiplier, it should overclock well. That being said, I think you would get better value going for a 170 or 175 as they are meant to overclock really well too.
December 25, 2006 2:25:35 PM

...get something like a 4800 and oc the hell out of it to 3ghz and beyond...

i can't get my 4800+ past 2.7 stable. cant even get it to boot at 2.8. where did you see 3ghz?
December 25, 2006 2:33:28 PM

I can afford the 180 so i will go for that but what is the difference between the 180 and 185(apart from the 200mhz)
December 25, 2006 2:54:12 PM

I think i am just going to get an fx 60, it is the only "4800" in stock. I can already afford the mobo and ram so cpu can go up to fx 60 price i have $2800 of which i want to use about 1400

400 cpu
400 gpu
200 mobo
200 ram
200 hdd (raptor)
rest 100, i can get it for that over in SA).
December 25, 2006 2:55:57 PM

well lets put it this not worried about temps with my case. it pushes 636cfm. as for my processor, all i remember is that its an athlon x2 4800+ (1.4vcore stock).

right now it's at 1.46 and it idles 26C. full load it runs at 40C. as for my motherboard, it's an asus a8n32-sli deluxe. memory is OCZ gold gamer 2gb dual channel kit
December 25, 2006 3:39:52 PM

raise vcore to 1.48

got it to boot at 2.88 but with ddr at 266 and stock timings. screw that...
December 25, 2006 8:22:14 PM

I shuda remember that, get the 170, it offers the best overclocking, and is cheaper (I think the 185 is 2.4 not 2.6, but either way, its too expensive)

The 180 is 2.4ghz as I just installed mine today
A 170 or 175 would have probably done me but they only had 180's at the time and I didn't want to miss out again, like I did when I waited too long to get a x2 4800.
December 27, 2006 3:27:00 AM

yeah...i dont know what it is. i tried lowering my divider. i have nothing but time for the next copule of days, so im gonna keep trying. only problem is that it's not stable. it booted and then froze when i was playing games. anyway, im going to get ddr 500 for this comp. i plan on rebuilding when amd comes out with their new chips and nvidia releases the then dx10 will be in full swing.

(sorry if i'm hijacking the thread, even if partially)
December 27, 2006 4:15:40 PM

my memory is at 2.8v. acutallly, i am stable right now at 2.82, but my core temp reaches 60C when i run orthos, so screw that... im just gonna keep it at 2.7 since it beasts through any game i play anyway.

as for waiting for amd to release, that's what im doing. i have never owned an intel, and i really dont plan on it. i want to see how their quad cores perform, and if they suck, then i'm just going to get one of the revised dual cores, if they perform like the c2d's. if not, ill probably get an e6700 and despise it. plus, i want direct x 10 to be proven, and there be lots of games out for when i build.
December 27, 2006 4:39:43 PM

I would forget about the fx57 and go with an entry level dual core and OC it to fx60 speeds. It really doesnt make sense to build a single core system anymore with dual core chips available under $200.
