how about an upgrade path for my venerable P4
I have an ASUS P4C800
1GB of PC2700 in 2x 512 modules
MSI Nvidia Geforce4 Ti 4200 (agp8x)
2 Seagate Sata 80Gb 8mg cache barracudas in raid 0 (dumb cause I have no back-up...)
HP DVD writer 200i
antec 480w true blue PSU
and a case from a moder that keeps falling apart (sniff...)
I have 3 requirements
A)I want to FOld to high heaven adn this PC isn't crunching well team #34025
B)I need a dual display card (one CRT and a Samsung syncmaster 151N)
C)THis computer acts a 10K mp3 server through the house (6PC network)
I run XP pro.
I would say, sell the 2.53 P4B and PC2700. Then get a P4C (800Mhz FSB) and PC3200. If you can, get some faster RAM (like PC4000) and you'll be able to OC the P4C. 2.4 P4C's at 3+Ghz isn't uncommon.
Where were you about a week ago. I was looking for a P4B. Out of curiousity, how much would you let it go for?
