As you can guess I'm trying to build a system that without any details sounds mediocore...
But as the parts list biulds up, that's looking harder and harder to do...
so far this is what I got in mind...
Bolded parts have arrived:
Pentium M 70 dothan @2.6Ghz
Asus CT-479 socket converter
Asus P4P800 SE S478 mobo w/ AGP
GF4 MX440 [ATI X8xx series card either Pro or XT (X800 or X850) to come later]
6GB Quantum Fireball (Slowest part in the machine... 1500 in PCMark04)
Zalman CNPS9500 HSF w/ TT thunderblade 78CFM fan as rear exhaust and intake
512MB of OCZ PC3700 (other stick comes when I get 2GB kit for my A64)
NO LONGER TRUE: but the kicker is it's goin into a POS hastily customized case (total hack job for front intake, 120mm rear exhaust, and 80mm side intake... IT'S SOOOOOOO BAD)
NO LONGER TRUE EITHER: Cooler Master Centurion 5 w/ 500W PSU (28A on 12V)
NOW: Aerocool Masstige
EDIT: UPDATED PARTS LIST (Again...Twice)
