So I finally got it built..... and I loooove it.
Been working on it for whawt seems like forever, but I finally made my switch over to my ClawHammer system.. it's been 3 days and I'm still drooling
AMD64 3200+ socket-939 90nm
GigaByte K8NS ultra-939 mobo
2x512MB pc3200 OCZ ram ( dual channel )
Arctic Cooling Silencer64 UltraTCL heatsink/fan
...also used Arctic Silver M-5 thermal compound...
Antec 550W Dual Fan psu
Aspire X-Plorer Turbo Case w/ LCD temp display
mobo temp: 25C
cpu temp(idle): 31C
cpu temp(100% load for 3 hours): 36C
Not bad for a college budget I'd say..
Still need to buy:
80Gb SATA drive ... or smaller, just need it to make use of my 4xSATA jacks and give games a place to load faster into mem. heh
Radeon 9800pro .... yeah, still bustin out the MX440 LOL
like I said.. college budget, no flaming my MX440, it's been through hell and back
Comments/Suggestions welcome on any of it.( except the mx440, leave it be)
