But most importantly, I have a few questions to ask with this build. And I'd also like some input as well.
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
-I know many of you aren't Asus fans on this forum. For one reason, I really don't know why. But the motherboard has to be Asus (or else the very fabric of this universe will tear apart). So if there is a better Asus board for AM2, please tell me.
AMD X2 5000+
This is where I'm stuck. With AM2 boards and all these DDR2 types, I really don't know which one to choose. I've heard that DDR2 with AM2 boards at this point in time is actually slower than 939 boards/RAM pairings? Is this true. I'm stuck between this
Please, input here would be greatly appreciated.
Western Digital 320GB 8MB Cache 7200RPM
(I highly doubt I will ever fill up all 320GB. This 120gb HD still has 50% space left after 4 years)
ATI X1900XT (Manufacturer=HIS)
Antec SP-450 SmartPower 2.0 (450 Watts. I think that should be enough, if I worked the Xtreme Wattage calculator correctly)
Thats pretty much what I wanted you guys to look at. The case/dvd/cd drives and all that crap I know I have down. But its all this stuff I really want to make sure I have right, and if there are better options out there (granting of course, not a major price difference)
