Could you answer a few questions?
- What's the monitor resolution you'll be using?
- What kinds of games & how often do you play?
- Will you be upgrading to a faster DX10 video card?
If you don't overclocking, you can get by with 533mhz value ram. If you won't upgrade video, the Sparkle psu with 550w & 30a combined on the list is more than suffice. It can even power an 8800gtx.
The x1650pro is good enough for light gaming. The highest to go would be x1950pro/7900gs since there are budget 8000 series video cards coming as soon as 12th.
Listen to him ^^^. MUCH better list there. If you're not overclocking, then get the cheap RAM and the 1650 vid card for light gaming.....the 1950 is HUGE overkill for you and a big waste of money.
One thing to consider: a backup hard drive. If your primary one goes down, you're screwed. Use the money you saved from the other components and drop another $80 on another drive. Seriously. You may end up kicking yourself later if something goes wrong and you lose all your data.
LoL, I did read about your hiper comment from another post, and it seems like a great PSU for its price!
Well, I recently purchased a Samsung 19" Wide screen, not sure what the resolution is, since it's not with me at the moment "Using a computer at school since mine's down )
Only real games I will be playing will be Warcraft 3, Neverwinter Nights 2, Unreal Tournament 2004. That's about it. Don't really plan on getting hardcore on gaming. I always wanted to have the ability to play hardcore games, but since there will be a price drop soon, I might as well stick with the cheaper ones. Since it'll probably be better for me anyways.
Although this system will only be a budget system for now, I definitely plan on getting a high end DX10 card sometime in the next 6 months. Will the PSU you listed be sufficient for future video card upgrades? Or should I look for an alternative to that video card.
With the extra money left over, I think I'm going to get a backup drive like skyguy said. I lost all my data on my HD and i almost cried like a baby when it happened today.
I think i may just use your list instead, it's a much better value, since my list was a bit pushing my budget... lol And since i already got a free Ultra Wizard case, I'm saving another 40
But the most important concern I have is with the video card, will it be sufficient to run games such as Neverwinter Nights 2, Warcraft and Unreal Tourney? (you can tell i'm not a HUGE gamer... lol )
The vid card should be fine at that resolution for what you want. (btw, your 19" widescreen is 1440x900 in all probability). Especially if you plan on getting a DX10 card later in the year. Save your money now and get something passable. It should handle those games just fine.
I went with the above list, different case, extra case fans, arctic silver 5, freezer cooler pro 7, went dual HD with the extra money. Gonna hold on to this system for a little bit, then gonna upgrade the videocard in the near future when the price drops
