I want a midtower gaming pc case, nothing expensive, just something that looks cool. Preferably with the see-thru windows and LEDs.
AMD Athlon 64 4000+
ASUS A8N-SLI-P nForce4/SATA RAID/PCIE/1394
That's really all...its crazy that its so hard to find. My bf bought me an ATI radeon x800 xl graphics card for Xmas, and I'm planning to drop around $1000-1200 on a nice gaming pc. I think I'm going to stay away from the dual-cores since if the games aren't using them, then they're only using one core so you're losing power unless you've got the big bucks to spend on a higher end model.
Second Question: I'm looking at 2 GB Corsair memory...was originally looking at the DDR400, but now I see the XMS3200 with black heat spreader....what exactly does that mean and is it worth the extra $40? My boyfriend and I both SUCK at knowing anything about memory aside from how much we want. I'm assuming that the higher the better (i.e. DDR400 > DDR300), but how bout this XMS stuff?
If either of these have been answered before - sorry - I just really didn't have the time to surf around and look (I gotta work hard to afford these things! haha)
