Im thinking of buying a new system as the one i have now stuggles with the latest games (fear, hl2,battlefield2 etc.. Ive been looking on cyberpowers website for a new system and the Gamer Ultra 900 looks ok but i will configure it to these specs:
AMD Athlon™64 X2 4800+ Dual-Core CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology ASUS A8N-SLI SE nForce4 SLI 2048 MB (1GBx2) PC3200 400MHz Dual Channel DDR MEMORY ATI Radeon X1900XTX PCI-E x16 512MB VIDEO CARD PF-500NZXT 500Watt Power Supply (WILL THIS BE ENOUGH).
The questions i have about this system is should i stay with the motherboard listed or go with the ASUS A8R-MVP Radeon Xpress200 CrossFire, bearing in mind that i will be sticking with just the one gfx card (can't afford 2), ive heard some bad things about the A8R-MVP so is it best to stay with the A8N-SLI SE? The next question is power will the PF-500NZXT 500Watt Power Supply be enough? Other than the small niggles is this a good spec system?
I won't be adding a 2nd gfx card now or the future, so taking that into account which would be the better mobo from between the two mentioned above?? (the gfx card im getting is at the top). The only other mobo i would consider is the Asus A8N5X nForce4 (is this anygood?), (i'm not considering anyother mobo) Please help (but bear in mind its just for 1 gfx card) Also anyhelp about the power supply would be nice. cheers
