    Specs Help!!

    Hi i want to build a new computer.

    This computer i have takes for ever to load and it stupidly slow.

    I already have a 9200se Graphics Card , 160gb IDE Hard Drive.

    What specs do you think i should go for, i want it for programming, graphics work ect iam not really a gamer.

    What i came up with was this:

    AMD 2500xp+
    512mb DDR 2700 Ram
    Abit NF7 Motherboard.

    Richman
    - Trust Me - My Current Desktop - My Rig -

    You should get PC3200 rated RAM so you can run 200 FSB. Crucial standard stuff or corsair value are both good. PC2700 is rated to run at 166 FSB.

    You could consider a Moblie XP cpu at 2400+ or 2500+. These have the advantage of unlocked multiplier and a lower voltage. By increasing the voltage to the same as the non-mobile ie from 1.55 to 1.65 you will get 3200+ easily. You don't even need an expensive CPU cooler since 1.65v is the normal so it won't get any hotter than normal.

    cpucity was the place to get mobile-xp's and they were about £10 more than non-mobiles.

    Richman when you say it takes forever to load do you mean windows?

    And how do you mean its slow?

    A system like that won't be great for games but windows and net access should be quick enough.

    He didn't list any of his current compnents (apart from video card and HDD), what he listed was the spec he had come up with for the new PC.
