My name is Claudiu and I have a "small" problem. I'm replacing my old PC and have made a configuration on my own. The thing is, I'm not all that sure that it all fits together so I kind of need some expert help. I'm going to post the system config. I made and will wait for your opinions. The total price of the config. hovers around 1.400$, so try to keep your advices regarding better parts or new ones within that limit. Also, if you have the time and think you can do a better job at configuring an AMD PC, please do so and PM me with the config or post here..I'm kind terrible at this but enjoy gaming very much and also, spent a faire amount of time saving for this so please try to keep the price of the whole thing within 1.400$ Thank you!
Motherboard: Abit KN9 Ultra socket AM2 chipset NVIDIA MCP55-Ultra single chip, HTT 1000, PCIe X16, dual DDR2 800, ATA133, 6x SATA 2, RAID 5, LAN Gigabit, sunet 7.1, Silent OTES
I want to know if they are compatible to eachother and also if they can be upgraded somehow. Is the motherboard ok for the 8800 gt? is the chipset alright? Is the power requirement ok in comparison to the usage? etc..I really need help since starting next week I'm going to begin the "hunt" for parts Thanks a lot!!
P.S. - I'm really confused..tried to ask for advice but the answers I got made me more frustrated about the whole thing and more weary about this endeavor..I really want to make a good PC and enjoy it as soon as possible without any more headaches..Please, please help!
If u only want AMD CPU, then thats a very solid build. however change your PSU definitely , get Corsair 520 or higher or OCZ GAMEXSTREAM 600 or higher
Also that motherboard will have no problems handling that 8800GT
Thank you..for the advice and warm welcome..I posted somewhere else and only got replyes that made me wonder about the config..The guys over there told me that it would be a waste to get AMD and that Intel could handle it better..I was so frustrated..You gave me some inner peace with your posts ..So the only thing I have to change is the PSU? I'll see what I can do about that..
I was wondering about games..I'm a gamer..LOVE games...so all I need to know is if it will run faster while I'm playing..that's the only thing I want to know..and off course, if it will perform as expected and if it will last..
