I've been asked to build a few pc's for a local company.
I know what to build in terms of the right spec for the job. However, this new chipset and CPU socket by intel has got me into a bit of a thinking spot...
Going on the companies current equipment: they've had it for about 4yrs, some Dell P3's that i remember upgrading over time for them (hard-drives, RAM graphics etc). It's a printing/publishing firm. He's hightlighted issues such as needing faster pc and wanting to be able to upgrade over, RAM, hdd, CPU even.
Which leads to me to this new intel stuff. I was going to stick with a socket 478 system, but not sure now. The business needs reliability obviously and i've read a few reviews on the new intel stuff which don't look too good.
well since the Intel are not getting good reviews, go for AMD, your best bet would be AMD Athlon 64 CPUs, read more at click here I always use AMD CPUs when building PCs and they have never failed me yet *touch wood* so this would be your best bet, also the motherboards to go with these AMDs would be from MSI click here they are very good and reliable too, again I use these for motherboards when building PCs and no probs at all. so there are a couple of things for you to consider.
