    Power supply

    you will be fine, i own a 5 year old computer and just last year i replaced the original 200watt ps with a 500 watt. As to setting it up ait couldnt be any easier. Any standard psu would work.
  2. lol ur a little behind, but yeah there amazing
  3. Only bought one stick so it wont be dual channel. And yes i am going to use the onboard video until i can afford a new gfx card. The case does come with a ps but dont know how reliable its going to be, have a 500 watt ps just in case. Brisbane cores are known to overclock real well. yeah i think i made a good decision, way better than my current compaq case.
  4. I already have a 16x dvd burner, 120gb hd, and i plan on using the stock hsf.

  6. more than likely thats the problem becuase you should atleast be able to get to the bios.
  7. okay narrowed down to two options this setup: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115014 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157107 would use 6600gt or this setup: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103774 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128034 would use onboard video lol finally going to decide

  9. i have an old compaq case that is only suitable for micro atx boards.
  10. if i do go intel I'm gonna need a cpu, mobo, video card, and ram. Not to mention a new case and cooling. All for under 200$
  11. Here is what i have right know Amd athlon xp 1800 underclocked to 1.1GHz 512 pc 3200 ram 6600gt(AGP) 500 watt ps pos mobo not even worth mentioning Basically i will need a new case, cpu, mobo, maybe ram/video card. this would be the cheapesr route to take http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157097 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3001041&Sku=CP2-A64-3800 could use current video card and ram.
  12. If i do go intel i would want a mobo with good overclocking abilities because that seems to be where they shine.
  13. The bottom line is that no matter what i do, it will be a huge change from what i have now. Just dont know which route to take amd or intel
  14. Gonna need a new video card aswell. For around 80bux
  15. thinking something like this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1696733&CatId=1569 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3001041&Sku=CP2-A64-3800 as you can see trying to keep the budget low.
  16. Since I got a job recently i am considering upgrading to a better and mobo. Currently have a athlon xp 1800 and pos mobo. So anything is a improvement. My budget is 200 and i need a decent cpu and mobo.(939 socket so i can use parts from old computer). On a second thought do you think it would be better to upgrade to a core 2 duo cpu and buy more parts later on when i get the money?
  17. It's supposed to be under, performance and quality settings right? edit: haha, nvm i figured it out thx
  18. Whats up guys, i know I havent been on lately but I have been trying to take a break from the computer but now i need some help. Okay i have a 6600 gt and I just installed the newest drives, and i installed cool bits but the overclocking option is not available. Anyone know why? BTW before my format i was able to oc the card.
  19. I never actually owned a ipod but my brother has one and it is definately better feature wise and sound. Ipod just has the looks.
