W00t I Finally Did It!

Posted 11 September 2002 - 07:55 PM

Yeah, well I finally ordered my upgrade. w00t, nuff said heres what I got

1x: Asus P4S533 SiS 645DX P4 (533FSB) Skt478 DDR333 ATX Motherboard w/Audio, LAN Retail

1x: Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor (Northwood) 2.4GHz, 533MHz FSB, Socket 478 Retail

2x: Samsung IC Chipset 256MB DDR333 PC2700 Memory

all for.... $440.50(that includes the $2 2day FedEx)

w00t im so happy! 900Mhz to 2.4Ghz wow... nice jump for me. I guess you can say I have bragging rights, so HAHHA I OWN YOU!

I would have gone with RDRAM cept that would have put the price around 600.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Hell, I still use my Pentium 133Mhz Dell laptop, that I bought in 1995-96(?), on a daily basis.... With a damn 1.3 Gb HD. :(

But I got that for certain tasks and it does them well and securely. ;)

I will upgrade sometimes when I don't owe people money :)

I'm currently running a pII 350 w/ 384MB ram, some crappy ati rage 4MB graphics card, and a 60, count that, 60GB hard drive :D

at the moment I'm more bothered about getting my network up and running, so I can link to my other, slightly better pc, but things are not going well :(

Um. . . your running windows right goose?

So, uh, anyone with a CompSci degree ACTUALLY owns you? You know, cause that's what owning actually means.

Bah as long as it works right? I'm in the process of getting a new comp as well... 2200+ athlon is my goal, with the asus a7v333 motherboard.

And in realality does anyone ever overheat their processor. if you have adaquite cooling you're in no trouble. I want a dual 1000mhz G4 too... :|

Yeah a good friend of mine just got the a7v333 about two weeks ago and it one of the nicest boards I have seen... the layout is nice, 6 channel audio sounds nice, the thurmo sensor is cool... and PC2700 is nice. I'm not into paying $$$$ for a couputer that will be outdated in a few months anyway... It is ether that or a laptom... not sure yet. :P (ramble,ramble,ramble)

Cheers Sam
