My “ancient” PC has just died (Mobo and Vga card) see sig !
Finally I am “forced” to upgrade
I am thinking about the following components and here they are with the prices in Egyptian Pounds and U$
-Gigabyte X38-DQ6 (1550 EP - 280$)
-Q6600 G0 (1520 EP - 274.5$)
-2 X 1GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 PC8500 1066 (830 EP - 150$) !!!
3-Chaintech (or any other brand !) 8800GT 512MB DDR3 (G92) (1750 EP -316$) !!!
4-HDD WD 500 SE16 . WD5000AAKS , I already have the WD5000KS (620 EP - 112$)
I don’t think that the RAM is a good choice because it is rather more expensive than higher quality ones from Newegg (I can make my brother buy anything I want from Newegg)
And I really would like some Micron D9 memory modules .
So my questions :
What memory have Micron D9 ?
Is it a good idea to buy something from the USA and when it comes to me I found it DOA ?
I also think the 8800GT card is very expensive compared to prices on Newegg
I am open to all suggestions , even to those who would suggest different components .
EDIT : could any moderator please fix the thread title ? It should be “need” not “needs” :o[/QUOTE]
I don’t know much about Intel mobos and CPUs so I can’t be any help there. (AMD supporter here )
Crucial has Micron chips since they now own Micron.
Seagate on the HDD for the 5 year warranty.
