A little background info. I used to be really into building PC's from 2003-2005. I have an old PC that is vintage 2004 (athlon64 3000, geforce 6800GT, 1gb RAM). Hoping that I can salvage some parts from it like the case and PSU. I haven't paid ANY attention to pc hardware in the last 5 years. So I have no experience with SLI or crossfire.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Summer 2010
BUDGET RANGE: $800-1200 USD
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, photo editing, video conversion.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Not sure if I can use this power supply still. It was a good one when I bought it in early 2004 and was considered overkill at the time. Antec TRUE550 550W ATX Power Supply. Let me know if I should get a new one.
