its actually coming
im 15 (16 in 4 days) and i have been trying to get myselfa a home comp for 2 years. this last month i have been saving everything i have and today it is actually coming! it should be here before 11 :D :D :D :D
sorry, i am just really excited. i have decided to custom build it because everyone had somthing bad to say about every comp store.
congrats. It's a nice thing to build a PC, it's creating... Enjoy!
So lets here the details. Whatcha makin! I'm curious. :)
nothing mind blowing, but it will be my gaming system.
P4 3Ghz HT
1Gb pc3200 DDR Ram
asus P4P800 mobo
80Gb seagate HDD
GeForce FX5500 256Ram
i think it will serve its purpose
btw just for comparison, the system i have been forced to use for the past 2 years is as follows:
sound blaster live
it is so brutally slow, i dont think i can handle it much longer :(
Wow...thats a big upgrade! Sounds pretty nice.
I built my comp...and well I got a little out of hand....I guess. Here are the specs:
Dual p4 xeon 3.06ghz w/ht
2 gb pc2700
asus pc-dl deluxe
Currently 5 hd's: 1 scsi 15,000rpm 20gb, 1 scsi 10,000rpm 20gb, 1 IDE 80gb, 1 60gb, 1 40gb)
ATI radeon 9800
dvd drive, cd-burner, floppy
I think it serves its purpose!! :D
EDIT: Oh ya and I'm not a gamer. They don't appeal to me.
not a gamer?! why would you buold such a powerful system if you didnt need it all?!
well i guess you have your reasons but still.
i managed to get all my parts for 1050$ after tax (canadian)
i love having friends that work for computer stores :) :)
At one point I was running 2 websites and an e-mail server from it. But their gone now and its all mine!
I built it for very little because I had many parts + many friends. Grand total came to around $1100. It was cool but now I am focusing on the carputer.
Not a bad system. I would have saved some money by going with AMD (and gained some performance too :D).
back whan i was 13 and into computers to my knowledge AMD was still struggling to be as good as intel. i didnt find out it was better until it was too late
but i think the P4 will do just fine :D
