So far, I've collected the following parts to build the comp -
I have a month to finish btw,
AMD 64 3000 (Venice)
Mwave DDR400 (2 x 512) * trying to go for dual channel
Random Optical Drive
Windows xp home
But I'm really iffy about assembling it.
First off, i'm intimidated by all the jumper settings.
I dl'ed the Manual from the Abit site : (http://www.abit-usa....ies=1&model=261)
And i had a good grasp on majority of the topics EXCEPT the jumpers.
I had no idea where to start, how to configure the jumpers.. n i don't know about how to configure the related ideas like multipliers etc..
Mainly b/c the manual didn't use pics, but black and white diagrams that didn't really help.
Is there a more detailed guide on how to set jumpers out there? preferable with pics?
Second Question, if I understood dual channel - i have to have the same type of memory, with the same size right?
3rd Question, I dont' have enough funds to buy a PCI-e card yet,will the assembly still function without one?
4th What do you guys think of the parts so far? Any suggestion will be welcome.
Thnx in Advance ~ PCNewb
