mobo

Recommended Posts

have finnally saved a little money and am designing my buggered systems replacement.

 

Was gonna do amd athalon x2 6000 instead of storebought intel system this time

 

pci express ?(make sugestion) video card (I'm not a gamer don't need anything fantastic here, just video editing)

 

? audio card ( wish to edit video in 5 channel)(newegg doesn't describe all audio jacks on asus m2n mobo)

 

motherboard---asus m2n e sli (handles 4 ide devices- to use my old toys-, and a 1394 jack I need)

 

I understand sli shares 2 video cards to accelarate video rendering, I don't need that

does it works with 1 card???

does it take part of 1st screen onto second card and 2nd monitor full screen or is that something I've read about elsewhere and different

How much is a little bit of money?

just so we can get a idea on what you want to spend, i just spent $900 on my new system.

and that was just for a processor, motherboard, memory and video card.

Oh I was kinda hoping for <$600, and reuseing all my ide stuff till it dies. Don't think theres anything else from my sony p4 I can borrow. So far I'm up to $400 (just 2 gig mem)

Was tinking a raidmax 612wb case with 500 watt power supply another $100 (4 fans, my sony always ran hot while rendering video, and thats when it died)

 

Jeepers, I don't think my sony xp runs on anything but that sony

I would go with a 2.6 windsor or even a 2.5 brisbane core, the 6000 is pushed to it's limits already with heat and power issues

 

better power supply

 

since you are using 4 ide's you will need a good power supply

I looked at power supplys Chewy, interesting one has a 28 amp 12v, and the other has 2 12v at 18 amp.

Now if I can find the mobo voltage in diagram I can figure out what I need? Or is this a sorted thing, 12v to mb, seperate 12v line to drives, and the other unit shares. Have not played this deep in computer before.

they have 2 2.6 windsor, both 129$

L2 cache

2 1mb or 2 512kb, bigger is better or just more heat?

 

decisions , decisions ,

thanks for the help Chewy

the larger l2 is wasted on the amd64's as the onboard memory controller is so damn fast

 

the one thing to know is the amd64's need premium ram to keep up with the cpu's design

premium ram?

ddr 2 800

Latency 4 or 5

or do you have a specific brand to avoid

That memory also has a bundle deal with XION Supernova XON-800R14N ATX12V quad rail nvidia sli cert.

Still makes $133 for psu though.

if we had another 600$ of cath's money to spend we could get him into a E6850 and a decent video card another 2 gigs of that ram, course then he would want to go 64 bit

I thought we would save the second 300$ card for after we got him hooked and then he would spend 1500$

 

course then he would need to stripe some raptors

If I had another $600 I'd probably go on a motorcycle vacation and worry about computing some other time. I've always got sweeties computer, although it goes somewhere in computer dreams sometimes. Taskmanager says system 98% idle, 2% taskmanager, and half my keystrokes nevermake it to the monitor.(it's not my spelling) I think she could use a clean install of everything, her kid says no.

 

Was looking at am2 fans, and reading the reviews, nobody sounded like they were doing a really good job. Let me see, 70c* 9/5+32= 158F (I understand F and that seems quite toasty, don't remember my p4 ever breaking 100F. )Should I continue saving money, and go some other way or does everybody run this toasty?

Dynatron > Item#:N82E16835114044 new idle temp of 105F vs. 116F with stock fan. Sustained torture CPU temp max of 136 to 141F compared to stock AMD cooler max at 153F

 

I may have been wro, wro, wrn, I may have been less then fully correct, I only remembered it as C

Still for $30 it not a bunch better then stock
