So i Need to give me little nephew a computer to use for schooling and maybe some youtube watching and cd/dvd burning.
I have a old computer sitting around that i want to restore
The motherboard is Asus p5AD2 Premum with 3.4 GHZ Prescott CPU
Specs above if that helps
I have full ram 4gb or whatever
I need to put a new Hard drive (with operating system), Graffix Card, and maybe power supply/case
what is a great graffix card i can get for this a decent price for this unit. I need it to be able to play mkv files if possible and maybs some gaming.
also which hard drive would be best to get? i only plan to put 1 hard drive in here. so a good size one would be best like a 1tb 7200rpm
for this unit would a 64mb cache even make a difference or should i just get a 32mb cash?
was thinking one of these
leaning towards the Western Digital but i dunno maybe samsung is better?
also after getting the right video card which version of windows should i install on it? Windows XP (If so which Version) or Windows 7 (If so which version). I want it to run the fastest it can for this unit
also the case i have it in is falling apart and is a bit taped up in the front holding the door on the front lol and the power supply fan doesnt work half the time.
thats the case i have now above but its falling apart in the front. not a picture of my case but thats the exact same one
I need the case to be able to fit the CPU Heatsink and fan though. It currently has the Thermalright SI-120 with a 120fan ontop
that shows about how big it is
i need to know a good power supply as well or just get a case/power supply combo
Only things i will have in the computer is
1 hard drive tb
1 DVD Burner
i just need it to run those plus the graffix card and whatever windows would be best
