    Price Check and question about SATA

    hi

    having taken the plunge and gone for a asrock dual 939 uli board and a xp 3000 venice and asaka cooler, whats this lot worth:

    abit nf7s v.2 mobo
    Athlon XP2500 Barton unlocked core
    2 x 256 meg dual channel twinmos windond ram
    aero 7 lite cooling fan

    would asking £100 be to much? never been o/clocked!

    also, i have currently a 40 gig ata133 hdd for my o/s and a 160 gig sata drive for my storage.

    would changing my 40 gig to a sata to match my one now improve speed via raiding it up, of add a sata2 drive for the o/s and have my sata 1 for storage make a difference to?

    At the moment there isnt much difference between SATA 1 and 2. The speed differemce is minimal at best.
    You might notice a bit of difference if u swap your PATA drive for a SATA drive.

    Speed difference is Significant between SATA 1.5GB/s and SATA 3GB/s

    It all depends on whether you enable NCQ or not.

    £100 might be at the top end of the value scale for your parts, but for what you get when you put them together its nice and cheap. Maybe advertise them as an upgrade in a local paper, with fitting included, for a bit more

    Anyway, I run 160 x 2 raid 0 with sata 1 maxtor's and its quite quick but i think to be honest it's all about seek time when you're in windows (or even loading things) these days. So try and get a raptor, or try one out, or investigate scsi maybe if its an option..

    You'd be better selling them individually on ebay,check this for a single lot and its only £75 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AMD-XP2600-333...QQcmdZViewItem



    Nf7-s would get £30
    2500+ unlocked would get £40
    Ram would get £20-30
    Not sure about the cooler, just say you'll add it in if the processor goes over £40 or something and that should get rid of it for a little more as I doubt it would sell for much individually.

    cheers for that guys.

    the fan is going no matter what as it won't be any good for a athlon 64, or will it?
