i just bought this... http://shop1.outpost.com/product/4202624
i have my dvd drive and cdrw drive, videocard, and soundcard...
my video card (geforce 4 mx 440) might be lacking a bit, what would be a better buy?
what kind of case with what kind of power supply should i get?
Is there any good hard drive deals going on either, my 40 gb is getting full really quickly.
and also what ram should i use. thanks :)
i know how to put computers together but im not sure on the parts to use for this one. I am going the team cheap route at the moment

I have no idea about the connector... I m getting the hard drive tommorow...May be I ll let you know.

alright thanks, i think it should be an ide connector on the motherboard, maybe someone else can chime in and add their input
11-03-2004, 05:41 PM

delta is that case company reputable?
and any good deals on a new graphics card, i mean what would be the most bang for my buck

Probably the most usable bang for the buck on a video card would be a Radeon 9600XT which is often seen around $150. The MX400 does not do any pixel shading which almost all games require now.

alright, i ordered everything i needed, grand total 364.10
this is including, case, rounded cables, 400w power supply, 160gb hd, 1 512mb pc2700 thing of ram, a usb 2.0 hub, processor and motherboard, and a geforcefx5200 128 mb video card. I think i did pretty good for being team cheap :)
