Final Choice of system

I think I have nailed down my purchase:
amd64 3500+ S939
MSI k8n neo plat
1g kinston hyper-x pc3200
eVGA 6800 gt

Good choice? Great choice?
I havent had any experience with MSI, in a previous post someone said go with it over ASUS, anyone have the same or diff advice? And is the ram good stuff?

  1. The mobo is one of the best, if not the best !
    The ram, i dunno


    Toms Hardware Site is a joke !
    Looks like intel spent more on bribing reviewers to cover up it aint that great than they did in R&D, you know what im talking about Tom !
  2. Tou probably meant MSI K8N Neo<b>2</b> Platinum. The K8N Neo is for Socket754 CPU!

    A7N8X / <font color=green><b>AMD Sempron 2800+</b></font color=green>
    Kingston DDR333 2x256Megs
    <font color=red>Radeon 8500 128Megs</font color=red> @ C:275/M:290
  3. Get a Corsair XMS 3200 if possible, less conflicting problems.

    AMD A64 3200+ (2.2GHz Newcastle)
    MSI K8N Neo Platinum
    1GB Corsair DDR400 ValueSelect (CL2.5)
    R9600Pro @ 500mhz Core, 340mhz Memory

    I'd start all over again.. Seriously, why not a Pentium 4 ? Whats wrong with an ATI X800 ? Why MSI when ASUS and ABIT offer such nice motherboards ?

  5. He's getting the exact same ram as me and I have no conflicting problems.

    AMD 64 3400+
    MSI K8N Neo Platinum
    1 GB Kingston HyperX PC3200
    ATI AIW 9600XT
    WD Raptor 74GB
  6. great choice for a system and if you shop around its hands down the best performance for the money (besides the ram, id go with crucial ballistix, great a64 performance and a good price; 2-2-2-5 to boot!) you should easily be able to oc both the proc and your 6800gt to the speeds of their higher priced counterparts. but what about hdd? best choice: go for two raptors in raid 0, they'll scream through bootup and app loads. (if you need more storage later, jsut add a third, theyll run even faster in a 3 drive array!)
    enjoy ur system.

  7. You think Abit makes nicer mobos than MSI? I've never owned either, but I want to buy an MSI to get away from ECS and Gigabyte.

    P.S. Asus boards are a rip-off.
  8. Obviously I should have added sarcasm tags for you :(
