Motherboard: Asus A8V E-Deluxe
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3500+
Hard Drives: 120GB IDE 7200RPM and 36GB WD Raptor 10kRPM
RAM: 1 GB (from 2x 512's), not even sure whether it's DDR1 or 2. I should check.
Graphics Card: Geforce FX 5200
Sound card is built into the Motherboard
Optical Drive: DVD +/- RW/ROM + CD +/- RW/ROM whatever, does everything
Also I currently use Ubuntu 8.04, and don't currently plan to use Windows at all in the near future (at least not on this computer).
So after a couple hours on Newegg I came up with a basic list of things I wanted to replace.
Proposed New Setup:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (3.0GHz, dual-core)
Motherboard: Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
Graphics Card: EVGA 512-P2-N757-TR GeForce 8600
Memory: G.SKILL 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRam DDR2
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar SE 320GB 3.5"
Plus the hard drives I already have?
Sound Card is still built in
I was also thinking about this case:
RAIDMAX Ares ATX-801WB Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower
So basically what I'm wondering is (a) whether all these components are compatible with each other, and that the processor, video card, and RAM will fit in the case and motherboard, etc.
and B.) does anyone have any suggestions of components that would be better choices than the ones above? Price is definitely a concern, but I don't want to buy low-quality components because of this.
