    This is my 1st post in this forum.Need some Help.See I knw that Am2 is around....Conroe is around....but I was thinking about this config:
    Amd Athlon 64 3800 X2 939 Proc

    Asus A8Ne Proactive SLI dlx mobo

    1Gb DDR 1 Zion to begin with (well I have questions about this u see as 939 supports only DDR1 shud I buy this mobo or not?Coz I've hrd that the "industry" is trying to phase out DDR1 and bing in DDR2..hence prices of
    DDR1 going up so on and so forth...

    Again another issue is the kind of graphics card that I shud go for I chose the Zebronics 512mb DDR2 Nvidia 6800 Xtreme(as it is 512mb , supports SLI and below Rs.10000/-)

    Lastly wat monitor do u guys suggest i)Samsung 940bw tft lcd wide OR ii)HCL 19" Tft Lcd square?

    I bought a Zebronics "Antibiotic" tower and a Zeb Platinum 500W Smps.................

    I know I've seen that monitor at comp stores but I think it better to spend on a 19" wide 16:9 Tft Lcd than on a 17" square Lcd even more when the price diff is only Rs.2500/-

    hey wat I actually need help with is my choice of 939 socket (ie.3800X2 and Asus A8Ne SLI Deluxe) coz I was told by the Hardware vendors in Calcutta that the Industry is trying to phase out DDR1 and pave way for DDR2.Hence DDR1 will keep getting obsolete so on and so forth......any suggestions

    And

    I need a PCIe Graphics card which is pretty decent which is 512mb and supports SLI.Also it has to be under Rs.10000/- as I will buy 2 of them.Hence I decided on the Zebronics Nvidia 512mb 6800 XT......any suggestions

    get one 7900GT instead of 2 6800XT..........u'll thank me in the future.
    dont worry abt DDR2.......u wont get much inc. in FPS(frames per second) in games.Just get a 939 mobo right now.

    Well 1st of all sorry guys for pulling up old junk...but come to think of it....the configuration I had posted back then is still the best config in the market and unfortunately I still cant afford it....
    ....wat I can afford is no where close to my dream....:rolleyes:

    A quick glance at my system config:-

    Intel Core2Duo E6600
    Asus P5N32 e SLI
    Transcend Jetram 1GB 667mhz
    Samsung 940BW
    Zeb 8600GT
    Seagate 250GB sata II
    16x Sony(OEM) dvd RW
    Zeb Anitibiotic & Platinum 500W
    Microsoft desktop pro 700
    bluesoliel bluetooth dongle
    Logitech MX Revolution

    Anyways this is not the reason why I dug up this ancient thread....the thing is that a friend of mine needs to buy a comp within 30k and this is wat I suggested to him...

    Athlon 64 X2 4000+ AM2
    Asus M2N-MX motherboard 7500/- (for the proc + mobo bundle)
    Transcend Jetram 1GB 667mhz 2100/-
    Cheapest 19" 4:3 (aspect ratio) square LCD 8500/-
    Seagate 160GB sata 2100/-
    16x Sony(OEM) dvd RW 1500/-
    Watever cabby and PSU 2000/-
    Watever mouse and keyboard 1000/-

    His requirements are usual surfing,word processing,watching movies,playing music and ocassionally playing mid range games (I guess he may add a VGA card later) - any suggestions regarding any better component is always welcome (especially motherboard and proc)
