i love to upgrade

Postby MonteLDS on Sat Jun 04, 2005 10:19 am

So i chose to give my box a small upgrade..
Swap, Motherboards, CPU, RAM, DVDRW, Video Card, and added an internal Card Reader

Changed motherboards, for the new socket.. this board doesn't have a Secondary IDE though.. :-?

My CPU went from a 3.2 to a 3.2... i wantted to switch socket types so when the P-D w/HT comes out I can swap out CPUs

My RAM was DDR400, so now it is DDR2-533

I had a TDK (plextor) dvd burner 8x8 +/- and I swapped with a Sony drive w/ Dual layer.

Since i swap to boards, I had to get a new Video Card. From AGPx8 to a PCI express.. So i got a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 w/ 256MB.

than i added the internal Card Reader for good measure

Decent, but you probably would have been better off waiting a few more weeks for Intel's Dual-Core chips to come out (I think the pricy one is out, for around $1100) :x
