Building a New System ---> Whould You Advise?

Discussion in 'Benchmarks & Performance' started by Cannibal Corpse, Sep 22, 2002.

  1. Hi All,

    I am about to shell out some cash and make a new system. I would like your opinion on these issues/quiestions that I have:

    1- Should I get a P4 1.6A ('Sweet' OverColocker!)?

    2- Should I get the new ABIT Mainboard IT7-MAX2

    3- Should I get DDR or RDRAM?

    4-If DDR, what type? PC1600, PC2100 (also mention brand please)

    5-If RDRAM, what type (also mention brand please)

    Many thanks in advance.

    1. 1.6 would work, i personally like the 2.4...
    2. sure, if i remember correctly, make sure your kb/ mouse are USB only..
    3. DDR. only RDRAM if you are making a server, or just want to toss away money.
    4. Corsair XMS3200. (my opinion)
    5. N/A

    ** make sure you get a solid HDD (like WD w/ 8 M Cache)
    ** video appropirate for what you want to do w/ the pc
