Oi! You got 4850 for 9.7K ?lol the i cancelled both board and GFX i am going for 780G and Ati 4850 just got the appropriate prcing..
motherboard : ASUS M3A series with 780G chipset == 5.3k
Gfx card : ati 4850 == 9.7k ( this one i think is pretty worth)
i lost my full day today at computer Mall man..
anymore suggestion ? as i have hold the order today
where the hell did you manage to get that stuff filthy cheap ?
And is the mobo with Express Gate ? Which one is it ? Is it one of those from the links I gave you from ASUS website ?
Personal advice: Transfer the P4 PC's contents to Old Celeron. Even HDD. If RAMs are compatible, keep them too. Concentrate all your stuff to one PC and get rid of celeron mobo and proccy by selling away.Hello all!!
Been going through this thread with great interest.. so though I would join and post a few questions of my own
I have two PC's
One's a P4 3.0ghz based system and the other an old Celeron based system..
I would like to upgrade only the CPU(mobo/procy/ram) for them..
I need one system for mild photoshop/indesign work and the other for general net/movies/light games..
But here's the catch.. I'm on a budget of about 10-15K(for both )
and if the budget allows would like to add a DVD drive and HDD for one system..
what would you guru's suggest?? Is it going to be possible??
Invest the rest of the money on a rig like this:
Gigabyte 780G motherboard 4.4K
(low price alternative) Zotac GF8200 motherboard 3.4K
AMD Phenom X3 8450 CPU 5.5K
Transcend/Kingston Value RAM DDR2 800MHz 1.8K
Samsung SATA DVD Writer 1.2K
250GB Seagate SATA II 7200RPM 16MB Buffer HDD 2.5K
