  • no excuse for 32 bit

    ok... If anyone is in the market for a new computer, there is no reason to not take the plunge to 64 bit.

    there are motherboards that have both 754 and 939 sockets onboard
    a 32 bit sempron 754 will work in a 64 bit mobo for now if money is really tight
    most of your existing parts work with the new setup


    I just put together a Athlon 64 3000+ socket 754 computer with a Geforce FX 5200 128 meg dual crt video, 1024 meg DDR pc2700 memory, 40 gig 7200 rpm drive, 52x32x52x16x cdrw/dvd combo drive, 7-in-1 media card reader, Mid tower case, 350 watt ps, firewire add-on card all for 462.00. most of us have the majority of these parts, so......

    motherboard refurbished from newegg. 29.00 Gigabyte w/ via k8t800 chipset
    cpu refurbished retail from newegg. 125.00 still has 3 yr warranty


    memory rosewill cas2.5 pc2700 512 x2 45.00 each
    40 gig seagate barracuda refurb 28.00
    rosewill cdrw/dvd combo 38.00 new
    7-in-1 card reader 17.00 new
    mid tower case 9.99
    firewire add on card 10.00
    350 watt ps 16.00
    video card refurbished 58.00
    421 plus shipping............

    and I skimped on a lot of parts here, but what it will be used for, It is more than enough everywhere.

    most of you could have 64 bit computers for under 160.00......

    Interesting... If I take my old hardware out of my p4 2.0, and buy a case with mobo and chip and memory, I can put in my old HDDs and vid card and sound card and DVD and that's all I'd need to do?

    Won't XP freak out if I did such a thing?

      Yes you can and yes it would. You would need to reinstall the OS.

      You may be able to reuse the old memory if its DDR

          It's just a repair install too so you don't have to reformat and such. It should be an easy transition to 64-bit.
