so this is my first build as i am usually lazy and just buy a premade. i want to build this around an i5 2500k cpu. i was planning on using my4670 ati card from my last comp as a stop gap, as well as my 500 gig hitachi 7200 rpm hard drive.
first off my comp im using now is a p4 3.0 gig 1 core, with 1 gig ram so anything will be a SUBSTANTIAL upgrade. ive re-evaluated needs and a few parts.
possible items, id appreciate any feedback on quality, known bugs or problems, or compatability issues.
the bundle idea sounds great, but i dont see the point of getting the professional over home, as i dont think ill be using any of the additional features. this is unless im missing an obvious one that id use.
and ya thats a great hard drive and was one of the ones i was looking at, also i do plan on using 2 graphics card at some point, just not sure if it would be worth it getting the 2nd 4670 or if i should just get 2 higher quality cards in the near future
In addition im not sure if its a broken link or what, but the alt. mobo link doesnt work. says discontinued or something
Modular is nice for keeping your cables neat and organized. I have one and It's nice being able to move my SATA connections to my hard drives and the PCIe to the graphics and whatnot. The single rail of cables makes it hard when you have a larger case to keep everything connected without using power extensions.
