  1. #1

    Default New Build

    Tell me what you think

    ATX mid case
    450 W PSU
    GiGabyte Mobo
    AMD Phenom quad core (2.4 GHz)
    XFX Geforce 8800
    3 X 1Gb Ram
    750 GB Western Digital HDD
    double layer dvd burner with lightsribe
    TV tuner and PVR
    Vista 32 bit and some version of linux(to be determined)

    Sound Good?

    Sounds pretty solid. But get Vista 64-bit.. you are buying a 64-bit CPU!

    I know, but with a student discount i can get the 32 bit version for $12. and i already have copies of several programs including Office for Win32. So, its a huge price swing (about $350). and from what i've heard, the driver support and compatibility isn't quite there yet. Am i right in thinking that a 32 bit OS will be able to use my processor to its fullest extent anyway?

    noo.... dont get vista
    thats the crappiest os i have ever seen!!!!

    For Real Now:
    vista still kinda has some stability issues so if i were u i would just get xp and buy somthin like desktop x or windows blinds for a nicer interface

    (i know ur probly on a budget but...)
    as far as the specs i would go with a more powerful psu maybe 500-600w
    also, if your about speed i would ditch that hdd and get a wd 150gb raptor which will be much faster
    and finally, be prepared to be able to handle heat with that tv tuner
    i had an ati tv tuner and even with a 80mm fan pointed directly at it i still had heat issues!!!!!!!

    other than that its pretty sweet!!!

    My two year old laptop has Vista now and the only thing i needed to fix was a new driver for my sound. It's not that bad. I know it had problems earlier on but most of them have been fixed. and as far as the HDD its 7200 RPM i don't need anything faster than that b/c its mostly for multimedia. Im not much of a gamer.
