AMD Athlon XP
Hi all, a friend of mine and me are going to build a computer priced at 2700 € (not 4 us, but for other people, we can't spend so much money on a computer )
I've got a list of the components we're planning to use, but we have many doubts and would like you to help us
What we look for:
-A really high performance PC, able to last many many time.
-Stability and zero problems. Once installed on the owner home can't give stabitily problems
or another kind of problems.
-Nice overclock: Must be able to overclock at a nice mark, and in this way, be more
powerfull than any computer avaiable on market.
-Stetically beautiful: this person have restricted us to a mid-tower black coloured.
Obviusly we want a beautifull tower of an high quality and nice design.
-High speed ripping (depends on DVD reader)
list of components:
ATX Box (mid-tower): Thermaltake Tsunami Black with window: 160 €
Alternative: Lian Li?
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-K8NSNXP-939 - 199 €
Alternative: K8N Neo2 Platinum-54G - 169 € (Problem: Thermalright XP-120 can't be installed
CPU: Winchester 3500+ - 325 €
Alternative: Athlon FX 53 or 55(discarted by too high price)
HeatSink: Thermalright XP-120 - 60,32 €
Alternative: Thermalright XP-90
CPU fan: 12 cm Titan (TFD-12025M12C 12 cm -aluminium colour-)
RAM: 2 gb DDR on dual channel (4x512mb) (any option for 2*1Gb quality mem?)
OCZ PC 500 latencies 2,5-4-4-7 (OCZ5001024ELDCGE-K)
Alternative: Geil (same speed and latencies than OCZ), Corsair....
VGA: Asus V9999GE/TD (Retail) 409
Alternative: ATI X800pro? (X800XT is too expensive)
(I would prefer ATI than nvidia, but i have heard very good about this V9999, I've read it's
mutable and highly overclockeable)
Hard Drive 2x250 Gb Serial ATA Western Digital on RAID mode - 344 €
Alternative: 2x74 Gb WD Raptor 10k rpm on RAID mode + 1x200 Gb WD for storage
Floppy drive: standard black front drive
DVD Reader: Plextor 16x PX-116A black front - 32 €
Alternative: Toshiba, liteon? (Must be avaiable with black front)
DVD Writer: Nec ND-3500A (black front)
Alternatives: Lite On SOHW-1633S Frontal negro 89
Pioneer A08 frontal negro 120 euros
IAS - Merlin Guerin 600va - 120€
Power Supply: Enermax EG 475AX-VE(G) SFMA 470W - 121,9 €
Alternative: Be quiet 520w
BAYBUS - Bay Fan 6 Canales Black - 34,57 €
Case fans: 2 12 cm titan (the same that for the CPU)
Some lights, neon and this kind of stuff
Thermal compound: Artic Silver 5 - 12 Grams - 13,92 €
Some other things
the main doubts we've got are in the mainboard (don't know if gigabyte is nice for OC, but
MSI don't accept XP-120 heatsink), in the processor and in Power supply and memory dimms.
Well, I accept and thant advices in all the componets

if you plan to realize 4 ddr modules on a s939 board, you have to know, that in this case dualchannel does only work with singlesided ram modules !!
so as beeing said, better go for 2x 1GB Modules .. it´s faster anyway
.. something else is, that if í would spent such an amount of €€€, then i wouldn´t be satisfied by having "only" an a64 3500+ cpu (this cpu is mainstream, no touch of the exclusive!
go for the fx on s939 an make it a pc people would kill for
Sys: C64; CPUtyp: 6510/8 bit; OS: BASIC 4.0; RAM: 64KB; Floppy Disk, max. 170 KB, 40 Bildschirmzeichen je Zeile, 25 Bildschirmzeilen; 64000 Grafikpunkte; 16 Farbtöne; programmierbare Töne; ASCII; Funktionstasten; Schnittstellen: seriell, parallel; Preis: ca. 680 Mark
