My Future Conroe Build   post a comment

Posted at 10:31 pm in Computers, Personal

This is the computer that I plan on completing by the end of the year. Hopefully sooner. I have concentrated on quality parts and future-proofing. My previous computer, a Dell, has seriously limited my upgrade choices and I don’t want to have this happen in the future. Let me know what you think of these parts:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz 2MB
Case: Antec Solo Black/Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case – Retail
PSU: Seasonic S12 Series S12-430W 430W Power Supply Retail
GPU: eVGA 256-P2-N624-AR e-GeForce 7900GS KO 256MB EVGA Fan
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 P965
RAM: Crucial Technology TY2KIT12864AA663 2GB kit (1GBx2) DDR2 PC2-5300 / DDR2-667 Tenth Anniversary
HDD: Western Digital WD5000KS 500GB 7200RPM SATA2 16MB Hard Drive

Sound will be integrated for now, and my DVD±RW will be moved from my Dell to the new rig. Total cost is around $1,000.
