Having worn out a store bought computer,knowing now how I use a computer,the bug has bit to build my own.
Browsing Tiger Direct,looking at barebones' kits,I found two socket 939 kits,within my price range,that will do what I want a computer to do.(Once I add the other stuff.)
The two are comparably equipped,with similar features,within ten dollars of each other. One has a MSI motherboard,the other a Mach Speed motherboard.
Does anyone have anything bad or good to say about either option,or can I select based upon price?
**This is subject to revision;I can take advice.**
-Case,power supply,Athelon 64 4000+ chip,heatsink/fan.(Hence the question above.)
-1 gb DDR memory(PC 3200)
-Nvidia,Pci express,16 card
-Sound Blaster sound card
-Western Digital Sata Drive 120gb
-Logitek Wireless Keyboard/Mouse
-Three piece speakers
-plain vanilla printer/USB cable
-Sony DVD-RW optical drive
-17" LED monitor
Any obvious mistakes so far?
