OK so I took 6 months to build my dream computer, looking for the best parts at the best prices I could find and here it is.
Pent IV 3.0, the 3.2 was just too expensive
Gigabyte gaknxp ultra
Twin segates SATA 160gig drives
Ati\Aiw 9700 pro
500 Power source
Creative A2 pro snd card
Pioneer a106 dvd burner
LG 52x cd burner
Thermatake xaser II case
120 mm blowhole fan (12 fans all together)
Cornerstone p1750 22’ flat crt monitor.
2 very expensive sticks of Geil PC5300 (533 mhz)
1 Gig Dual channel DDR
Now my problem beside being about $2200 shy
in the wallet, when I go into my Bios (updated today)
it shows the ram at 400 mhz not 533 mhz
I know I could and will overclock it but my bios won’t let me change it.
So what gives ???
I could have gotten PC4000 (400 Mhz) for about $120.00 less
Thanks as always
BTW it ripps and converts at sick speeds.
