New compy...what RAM?
#1 Posted 30 August 2006 - 05:15 PM
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz Socket LGA775, 2MB, BOXED w/fan £149.95
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3, P965, Socket-775, ATX, SATAII, GbLAN, DDR2, 1xPCI-Ex16 £97.36
Gainward BLISS Geforce 7900 GT "Golden Sample" 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-040-GW) £187.99 - 2nd Gainward 1 down. Not sure if i'm being crapped with this 1 as it seems a bit cheap for 550/1400 and the 1 above it is crapper but costs more.
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATA2 16MB 7200RPM £54.01
Antec Sonata II Piano Black Quiet Midi Tower - With 450W SmartPower2.0 PSU £70.45
NEC DVD±RW burner, ND-4571A, 16x, Dual, Ram, LabelFlash, Black OEM £27.50
I'll see what the onboard sound is like before deciding whether or not to get X-Fi as well. Apart from that I think i've got pretty much everything sorted (don't need keyboard/mouse/monitor), I just need suggestions on what RAM to get; preferrably no more than £100 and at least 1Gb.

Corsair 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR2 667MHz 2x64Mx64 non-ECC 2x240 DIMM Unbuffered CL5 Lifetime Warranty £62.22
Corsair Value S. PC5300 DDR2 2048MB Kit w/two matched Value Select 1024MB £136.01
Would 2Gb actually do much for me compared to 1Gb? More than double the increase in price -_-

I don't know why this one is cheaper, but since it is, you might as well get it instead
