    Help me building a pc plz!!

    Hi everybody!
    A time ago I did a thread here in the forum asking for help to build my customized pc... but in the end i didnt have money enough to build it... but now I have! So this is what I want you to help me with.. Right now I'm very lost and don't know what is good and not.. I'm kind of lazy so I'm not looking it up either.. so I want to ask you guys if you could come up with a moderboard (with pci express), ddr 2 and a graphiccard that you recomend.. I think that I can handle with the rest of the parts... And later I will ask you what you think about it before I buy all parts.. Oh before I forget.. now you probably will hate me but I want a Intel p4 processor...

    Thank you guys! /José from Sweden

    AMD 64 pees all over anything Intel will have out in the next year. I guess if you want to pay over the odds for an inferior machine no-one can stop you, but you may find it harder to get good advice.

    I'd be very wary of going LGA DDR2 atm. for price theres no contest, A64 is cheaper and imo is better and has more future.

    Ignore me read the hexus review of the new improved intel c/set and flagship chip ...http://hexus.net/content/reviews/rev...lld19JRD04OTg=

    Currently wanted:
    DVB- satellite pci card

    Lets be honest:

    AMD64 is better for gaming/windows/ easier to cool quietly. People are now getting decent overclocks too. However, you say you want PCI Express, and amd wont have suppport for that until nforce 4 boards come out, due 2-4 weeks. AMD are using regular ddr 400 for the forseeable future due to ddr2 533 being no faster than ddr400.

    Intel is better at encoding mp3 / divx / mpeg. You can buy pci express/ddr2 boards for it now, but the whole combo will tear a cow sized whole in your wallet, esp the ddr2, as its £100 / 512mb which is double that of ddr. Guess thats why they call it ddr2? 925 boards are £130, which is a little steep, but not too bad.

    I'm a loyal AMD fan, and would steer anyone to them without thinking, but if you can afford high end intel kit, then the money is yours to spend my friend.

    To settle matters: Tell us what your willing to spend on the mobo / cpu / ram / Gcard and we'll point out what can be had from amd / intel for that money. Then its up to you.

    It's a really excellent bit of core logic for AMD CPUs. I know many of you have been waiting for nForce4 before you upgraded to PCI Express graphics cards. It's here, it performs great, features are top notch and boards won't cost the earth.

    2-4 weeks for availability i'd guess.

    Hmm my idea was to have a cost around 750-1000 £ more or less for the hole computer (maybe not including the CRT)... But i haven't think about the cost for each part.. So I let you decide what I should spend more money on and what I should spend less on. The chassi, psu and hdd that I've looked up is around 230 £.. But feel free to use the rest of the money..

    Thanks /José

    Well, under £1000 pounds is not alot of money for going to the bleeding edge of prescott and ddr2 / pci-e, so i would say you would get much more bang from an AMD buck. Hang on and ill have a look round and suggest something..

    I could pay 1300 £ for it but i doubt I could pay much more for it... :/ 1300 £ is just for the computer not counting with the CRT, keybord a.s.o.

    The AMD's cost even more! unless your not talking about a 939 3500+ or 3800+...

    myth - ur right that a 939 3500 chip is about the same cost as the equivelent Intel, but the mobo and RAM will be sigfiicantly cheaper. i925 boards cost £120 - 180 and ddr2-533 is double the cost of ddr-400.

    Save money by getting a cheapish Winchester and overclocking it. I reckon you'll be able to build a kickass PC based on NF4 and Winchester for under £1200 exc monitor with quality components throughout, providing you stay away from the "poor bang for buck" items like 6800 Ultras and Raptor HDs.
