  • Some suggestions?

    I'm ordering the rest of my computer parts this week... I want a dual-core.

    Can anyone suggest some decent (but somewhat cheap) parts? Are there any sites out there besides newegg and pricewatch?

    Also, does it matter what kind of CD-ROM I have, or hard drive for that matter?

    Your input would be very much appreciated.

    Miss you guys !

    You need to post exactly what you have ordered up until this point if we're to give you any sort of suggestions.

      I just redid my kids computer with this stuff from newwegg.com:

      CORSAIR XMS2 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory P/N CM2X1024-6400, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Brisbane 2.2GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Processor P/N ADO4200DDBOX , BIOSTAR TF560ComVGA2 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 560 ATX Motherboard/VGA Combo P/N TF560ComVGA2 , Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2C P/N E85-05040 , and Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC ATX 430W Power Supply 115/230 V P/N W0070RUC.Runs great. I hope this helps.

              You can keep your old hardware for screen, keyboard, mouse, case, optical drives, and disk drives. Granted newer is usually better (keyboards are a big exception) but you don't really need to replace the drives unless you find out you need to replace the drives, and then you can do that at a later date.

                  You should really go with www.newegg.com (if you find it on eBay, don't buy it; if you find it on a site you've never heard of for really cheap, don't buy it).

                          Yeah, I just fixed up an old computer myself. Not THAT old, good motherboard, great videocard. Just needed a cd drive and a hard drive. Which are both cheap.

                          Anyways, hope you get it up and running soon. Getting kind of old only hearing deep male voices ingame.
