More about rate system gonna built
  1. - I'd go with Epox 8RGA+ on the first system as it has recieved positive user feedback here.

    - Good choice for processor on both systems.

  2. Heck you could do gaming with either one of those systems. I mean anything that uses the QUake3 engine, the NFORCE2 should scream. That will come in handy during those idle moments at the job. But as far as Doom3/HL2 the NFORCE2 will need lowr settings of course.

    My OS features preemptive multitasking, a fully interactive command line, & support for 640K of RAM!
  3. shhhhhhh my parents dont know that wahahahahahhahhahahhahaaha

  4. Since your going to be gaming do not use that cheapo Psu!!!!!
  5. P4 2.4C I have it. I went with Abit IS7 Ram PC 3500 HyperX. 2 x 512
  6. the first one has on-board video so it should be slower on games. The second one could be faster.

  8. -first one looks good
    -second one go with the msi mobo, and if you can afford it, get an fx 5600 128MB. A ti4200 will be lacking for games like d3 and hl2. If you cannot afford it i would suggest getting a cheaper proc on the first one and using that extra money to upgrade the vid. DO you plan on ocing the p4c?, cause if not save a little cash and get 400mhz ram instead of 466mhz.
  9. overclock the second system and get the abit canterwood or springdale mobo

  10. I'd go with the p4c, definately go with the neo2 but I wouldn't have any less than a gig of ram these days although 2x512 3200 will set u back £200+ in the UK, dunno bout US prices. But I'm gonna be building a a p4 2.4c system with the neo 2 and i'm going with 2x512 pc4000 and overclocking to 3.0GHz. Definately go for a Radeon 9600 pro/Geforce FX5600 (the ati card is better). All thats good advice but it will set u back more $ so...

    I'm British... you should feel inferior
  11. guys, if u go to the graphic fourm u'll know i hang around there ALOT! i dont need advice on video cards.

    and I guess i'll get the NEO instead of the 8KNXP. Also 1 GB of dual channel ram costs an arm here in Canada and since i'm already selling both legs for that P4 system, i dont think i can afford 1Gb cause i wanna have two arms please~ lol
