I'm here becuase i need that yours help me to build my first pc.
I'll have in January are less 1,100.00 dollars ready for make only one pc.
This is what i build and for that i need that yours help me find the correct pieces and maybe also the corrects places for buy the parts or the complete PC.
I want this
Athlon XP 1800+ (or less better performance for price)
Board : Epox 8KHA+
Sound Card : Audigy Platinum EX (I Have Some musicians friends)
Monitor : 19"
Memory : 512MBDDR (Of course my darling)
A CD ROM
A DVD ROM
A CD RW
An A great speaker set (6 channel)the which help me to leave out all the power of the audigy card.
A Great Cooler For My Athlon (I will need it)
And last The Video Card (I Think that with a Geforce 2 ultra or less will be great because i don't need a lot of visual features (i'm not a gamer) and i can wait for the TI600 or even the geforce 4)
Are first instant i believe that i how much pc for me because i'm not a gamer, but i want to build this because i want to stay a lot of time without change nothing (i think).
The Other parts to the exception of the case the which i will buy here i have all the others parts (Mouse,Hard Disk, Keyboard,Modem,NIC,floppy) so please help me to build my new world, "One in which famine, disease and ignorance Will be only memories of a dismal past".
No he won't. He should be able to get that for ok. Couple of comments.
The Audigy isn't 6-channel, and no card on the market is (except for the new Maya 7.1, but I haven't read up on that, so I can't give an opinion). If you're getting the eX for recording, I'd recommend the Hercules Game Theater XP. Better external rack, and half the price. Of course, you'd be better off with a Digidesign 001, but that's around $800.
Motherboard - $105 (good price, BTW)
XP 1800+ Retail - $225 (my recommendation is a 1600+ for $139)
Sound Card - $208 (my recommendation is the GTXP for $113)
Monitor - $229 (my recommendation is the AG for $325)
RAM - $126
CD-ROM - Aopen 52x for $26
CD-RW - Teac 24/10/40 for $125
DVD-ROM - Pioneer 16x slot-load $75
Speakers - ?? (my recommendation, Logitech Z560s for $140)
Video card - ?? (my recommendation, Gainward ti200 for $165)
Ok, let's add that up. Open up calculator... $1,425.00 for what you specified (except for speakers and video card. With my sugestions...$1,339.
Well, looks like I spoke to hastily (and not the first time). I guess I've been reading to many of Matisaro's "Ultimate AMD Gaming Machine for $500!!!" posts
Thanx a lot of fat, hey for those of yours, for January i will have are less 1200.00 dollars so i believe i can build this pc.
