computer help!



what would you guys choose? PC800 or PC1066? im currently deciding and i dont know what to choose..either way im getting 512MB of it, and yes i know you need 2 sticks of ram at a time...so im getting 2x256RDRAM. i mostly just go on msn, icq, maxbimmer...but i play games like need for speed hot pursuit 2 and quake 3 also im getting counter strike, plus i want a computer that will be fast for a long time....where i can just add more ram instead a of a different type of ram....my system will have P4 northwood 2.4GHZ, 512 PC800/1066 ram, and Asus P4T533-C which has the intel 850 chip.

Well if I were you I'll go with 1066.
But why waste your money getting the latest, fastest, blabla if you're just going to use it only for ICQ,MSN, browse internet (MILF? ) such a waste of power if you asked me.. my P 200 can do all that.. and more (FTP server, file server , MP3 Storage)

Now as for gaming, yes you will need all those power.. but you didnt mention anything about what graphic card you gonna use, if you're gonna get ATI xpert 32 (or whatever they call it ) forget it! You're just wasting your money

Combine that system with Radeon 9700 pro or Geforce 4 Ti4600 (or if you have the $ wait for Geforce FX )
you'll have a kick ass system..

Go get it and let's play UT 2k3

hope this helps

You forgot to mention that you use your computer to download porn and masterbate.

I'd go with the 1066 over the 800, apparently its the best stuff available, next to Dual DDR or DDRII or whatever they're gonna call it.


I'm still Pro AMD though. P4's are too expensive for my blood.

As a teacher of mine once said to us when we were making fun of a fellow classmate in high school about it :

"10% of you have the testicular fortitude to admit it. The other 90% lies about it!"

Boy did that shut us all up fast.

Why do you such expensive computer I got no clue.
I got PIII450 with 768mb of ram and Radeon 7500 64mb, 100gb(3 drive combined)

I'm happy with it, and not planning on upgrading, it is stable and I don't fell any difference between my computer and friends PIV1.7ghz with 896mb of ram. Well NFS:HS2 kinda slow, but i don't really care.
