    4 links when you could have just posted model#'s or descriptions :rolleyes:


    biostar mobo :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    dynapower :ugh:

    The memory is okay.

    The CPU is fine.


    get a better mobo and psu. Get something by Fortron if you want to save money. And there is no substitute for an Intel mobo.

    you need to run the memory in pairs... so you know you need TWO sticks, right? Get a dual-channel kit to ensure they're properly paired. Corsair is better if you can upgrade from the Patriot.

    Oh this is good, I love a challenge. :)


    MOTHERBOARD
    You can get an Intel DG965 motherboard for $136 shipped
    It has 8 channel audio, onboard 0/1/0+1/5 Matrix RAID, 6 Sata 3 Gb/s,
    6 rear usb 2.0, 4 onboard usb 2.0, onboard Intel GMA X3000 graphics
    that are Vista Aero ready AND SUPPORT DX10, and it even has firewire ftmfw.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813121052

    PROCESSOR
    Pentium D915 dual core - $99 shipped
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819116253

    MEMORY
    2 X 512mb Patriot Signature 667mhz DDR2 - $72 shipped
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820220066


    POWER SUPPLY
    If you're lucky, the one you picked would fail within 6 months.
    If you're not lucky, it wouldn't last a month.
    I'm running a 550 watt version of this psu with an E6600 Core 2 Duo, 2gb, 4 x hard drives,
    7900GT graphics, dvd burner, and an Adaptec scsi card, and it runs stable as a rock.
    Antec True Power II - $51 shipped.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103928



    Your total budget for parts for the parts you listed - $311
    The total budget for the parts that I listed .............$358


    Run the memory in dual channel configuration.
    Set the shared memory between192mb and 256mb and you're good to go.

    This setup has:

    Superior stability from the motherboard -
    The 965 chipset
    1gb memory
    DX10 support
    6 x SATA
    SigmaTel audio - 8 channel with suport for Dolby
    Rock solid psu
    Dual core cpu - 65nm - 2 x 2mb cache
    Firewire
    (the build you listed doesn't have any of that. Well, it has 512mb but still...)

    All for just $47 more than the parts you posted.

    the 965 is *old*. Better off with the D945. It's proven reliable and it uses *current* technology... not generation-old technology.

    Antec psu's are absolute crap. Pick one up and take it apart. shit components. shit construction.

    Fortron/Sparkle/Enermax/PCP&C/etc... stick with the people that know what they're doing.

    You have that backwards Jolly. The 965 is brand new.
    And it's the 975 that is older.

    I think it's safe to say the guy is trying to mainain a small budget.
    And there's nothing in the game for that price that's better than the Antec.

    When the budget is higher, I always recommend PCP&C, Sparkle, Seasonic,
    Silverstone and the higher end Enermax's,
    but you can't touch any of those for $50 shipped.

    Honestly, I've seen you post before that you don't like Antec or their support
    but I just don't get it. I've called them for pieces parts numerous times
    and half the time they send me the parts for free.
    Their support is US based, and it's nice to be able to understand them when I call.
    A big plus is that they carry a 3-5 year warranty depending on the model.

    You're not listening to me. Go take one of their units apart. It's bullshit cheap-ass china crap. And then they rip you off by charging 4-5x the other brands. They had better send you free parts, they already stole your money.

    For LESS than the antec (you can generally buy 2 kick-ass fortrons for the price of one shitty antec) you get a psu that's built 10000x better. Gee, hard choice :rolleyes:

    cpt obvious
    i was just saying that if he wants to stay with that cheap crap, you can get a decent combo deal at newegg

    i'm pretty sure most people know that a <$50 mobo is going to be crap...but some people are fine with that.

    thats why kia still sells cars
