i am starting to build a computer for the first time and am wondering what is the best processor (amd athlon 3000+ or pentium 4). also i cant decide what motherboard to use i have picked the asus a7n8x- deluxe but am still not sure. advice required. also what do u think about the saphire radeon 9600 xt 256 mb ddr graphics card.
Everybody has different opinions when it comes to pentium and athlon. When buying a mobo think of what you need or might use in the near future. e.g. How many pci slots, Does it have an agp slot or is it onboard sound only, how many memory slots does it have. You get the piont. The main thing I have found about graphics cards is, it depends how much you wanna spend.
