Well heres the specs:
Apevia Case ---60$
XFX Motherboard ---100$
Team Elite ram---31$
Power Supply --- 40$ (free shipping!)
Grand total was a couple dollars under 350$ (after shipping)
I have a DVD burner/player, I'm using my hard drive and windows xp from this computer, and my friends giving me an old pentium 4 3.0ghz with hyper threading. I plan on eventually getting a Q6600.
I figured this would work out, but the Pentium 4 only has 800mhz fsb I believe. The board supports Pentium 4, but the fsb is 1333/1066. This should still work right? Does it end up underclocking my system, or would I have to overclock the Pentium 4 to 1066 fsb?
I know the ram is kind of crappy, but I ordered the stuff yesterday, and this morning I received an e-mail that the wintec ampo (good brand, have it in this computer now) was out of order, after I had ordered it. I had to stay under 350$ so I got that cheap ram. It seems like it should work though. I also might try overclocking my processor in a few weeks if everything seems stable. It will be my first time though, so I got some reading to do!
I also like how Newegg is sending some of my stuff through Canada already. I think this is so the don't have Columbus day off (or do they celebrate Columbus Day ) . Anyways Canada is closer to where I live then New Jersey.
Any feedback is great, I'm pretty sure everything should work fine together. Thanks for reading this!
