Well the old Dino died about a month ago.... Well i should have killed it lol.
Its a old Dell Dimension C521:
SpoilerCPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (Fried I think)
RAM 3.00 GB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 317MHz
Motherboard: Dell Inc 0HY175 (Socket M2 ) (Fried)
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4550 (Sapphire/PCPartner) (still works)
Hard Drives: 75GB Western Digital WDC WD80 0JD-75MSA3 SCSI Disk Device (Still works)
Optical Drives: ATAPI iHAS524 B SCSI CdRom Device (Best burner ever!!!!)
Anyways I have saved up $600 for a new build. I don't need a keyboard/mouse/monitor/CDdrive because I am reusing them. Also I am gunna dual boot Ubuntu for my Android builds on the old hard drive too.
Here's the new build (Well actually my first complete computer build):
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $89.99
CPU Cooler: Corsair H40 Liquid CPU Cooler $39.99
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard $79.99
Memory: Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $36.99
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $69.98, 75GB Western Digital WDC WD80 0JD-75MSA3 SCSI Disk Device (FREE)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card $189.99
Case: Logisys CS2006BK ATX Mid Tower Case w/480W Power Supply $42.99
Optical Drives: ATAPI iHAS524 B SCSI CdRom Device (FREE)
Now for this PC I'm gunna be using it for Gaming, Music, school, building Android, emulators (PS2, Wii), gfx, and probably alot more!
So the big question is.....: For its price is it a good build? I live in Canada and every part is going to be bought at NCIX Canada just down the street from me.
Honestly I think im going quadcore crazy... If i buy this it will be my 3rd quadcore device which includes my HTC One X 1.5ghz quad nVidia GPU and an Asus Transformer TF300t at 1.8gh nVidia GPU. Damn well I guess I will have a device for everything.
