Hey all, you might have seen my topic earlier on getting a proc, mobo and fx card for 500$ or less =). I have purchased them from zipzoomfly (free 2nd day air, I need my computer back now!!).
Now I have been building systems for quite a while, but I have been having bad luck lateley.....call it exaustion from too much work, or just plain bad karma, but computers have not been going right for me latley . Anyways, What is there, that I need to know about getting a system up and running on an athlon 64/PCI express. I already have all my other components, here they are
Antec NEO power 480w (I think on the watts)
Xaser III 1000a
1 Gigabyte of Corsair value select ram pc3200
74Gb Western Digital Raptor SATA drive
40gb western digital IDE drive (for storage and stuff)
here is what I ordered
So I guess in the long run, are there any nuances of athlon 64 procs I should be aware of, and are there any for PCI express as well?
Also, with the 6600gt, is that something I will need to disable fast writes, or manually modify its voltage on?
