    Default Pc Spec

    Am going to build a new pc and the spec is as below. Would welcome any comments or advice please.

    CPU AMD Athlon xp 2000
    M/B ASUS A7S33
    COOLER ALASKA AK821
    CASE LIAN PC7USB
    PSU ENRMAX 350W
    H/D WESTERN DIGITAL 80GB
    GRAPHICS 64MB ATI RADEON 7500OEM
    CDRW LITEON CDRW 40X10X40
    RAM 512MB DDR PC2700(333)

    Will be adding a dvd writer l8r . My only concern is motherboard selection. I was going to choose an MSI KT3 Ultra2 buti do not know of anyone who has used MSI. The PC will not be used for gaming of any serious nature.
    Welcome any advice

    Thanking You

    I am looking to build a new system and was thinking of using a MSI KT3 Ultra. I would be interested in anyone's opinions of MSI boards.

    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Just one thing. Don't bother with the Radeon 7500 when you can pick up an 8500LE for under 100.

    Default Not too sure about the mobo?????

    Make sure you use Samsung DDR and that the WD harddrive is the NEW 8Mb Catch caviar one.

    I would also use the Asus A7V333A mobo as it has won BUCKET loads of awards and is ROCK solid. It also use's the C-Media 8738 audio controller which is on par with SB Live. It use's the VIA KT333 chipset which is much better than the SiS 745 chipset that the A7S33 use's.
