Since my current computer is getting vastly outdated (It doesnīt even have an AGP) and doesnīt seem to hold very well Maya, nor any other resource intensive aplication, Iīve currently begun a quest to build me myself one. I wonīt go OEM no more.
Also, this no inmediate setup (Since Iīm broke ATM anyway) but one with a future scope (Maybe 6 months), this could even play advantageous for me, since components would actually lower their prices.
As such, I would kindly request your aid guys, in reviewing this, and probably more setups I might present in this thread in the near future.
One more thing, I just went mayor components hunting, using some well known review sites (such as anandtech.com
), however I havenīt gotten in it connection cables, or fans since I donīt have the slighlest clue about them. All the components wil be imported to my country, which is why I canīt afford mistakes ... so If somethingīs missing please do say so.
Setup (Updated as of May 2th)
Current price as of now is about 1280$
- ASUS Motherboard P4C800 Deluxe
- ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
- Intel Pentium 4 3.06GHZ
- Corsair 512MB DDR RAM x 2
- Maxtor 80 GB 7200 RPM
Remember still need a case, fans, power unit, etc. So please tell me what else do I need to make this a working setup.
Iīm endeavouring for a mid-to-top-of-the-line desktop station.
Oh by the way, going for Pentium.
