building my own pc

  Beverley Anne 00:15 15 Mar 2003


I am starting to get the bits and pieces to build my own pc.

I am using the 3 part series featured in PC Advisor not so long ago.

Would using a ME OS instead of the XP OS featured in the series work with Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz Processor, 256MB pc4200 Samsung Memory, Asus P4T533 Motherboard. Or would they be to powerful, if so could please suggest what would work with an ME OS.

No, you will be fine, whichever O/S you choose to install with either of the systems in the self build article. J.

I'd use XP. More up to date and better all round I find.

The correct memory for your motherboard is RDRAM (also called RIM or RAMBUS) - not DDR which you have appeared to quote.

If you want a simliar board for DDR-RAM, look at the P4PE

Beverley Anne I have just completed my second self build and it is a very rewarding experience when you fire it up for the first time, but beware it can be a bit addictive.

woodchip I would be interested to see how a system built with that motherbnoard performed, it might be ok for a cheap second system, but at the price it might be worth giving it a try.
