My Shopping List...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

EDIT: Really I just want to know if there is any success with Core 2 Duo, or Core Duo Chips, the Wiki says yes, but the forum has mixed opinions.




Motherboard: Intel D945GPMLKR Intel Socket 775 MicroATX Motherboard


Processor: Intel Pentium D 840 3.20GHz OEM Processor


Together those are $200.00


Memory: OCZ Dual Channel Gold PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB) - $159.99




I already have a SATA HDD; planning on using onboard video until I buy a card.



I'm not a huge fan of Tiger Direct (woot for Newegg and ZZF) but that motherboard combo looks pretty hot to me. Plus I couldn't find that processor on Newegg (of course someone will post it within 20 seconds of me hitting submit). Are there better deals out there right now?


From what i've seen this processor and motherboard combo works very well, is there anything else I should consider looking into? I know the Core 2 Duos are becoming available--are they worth the wait, are they really so revolutionary? (they don't work now from what I found via a search, not sure if it was current)


Anyhow, If you folks could look over my shopping list that would be nice, it's been a long time since i've been in the PC-building market.
