Buying new comp please advice

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Der Steppenwolf, Dec 28, 2004.

  1. I am putting together new comp for a friend of mine and since he is not
    that good with computers I want to build something STABLE for him. So
    any advice on a nice, stable motherboard. Computer will be mostly used
    for surfing and some playing (not often though) as well as DVD watching
    and surfing. I do want to get Nforce4 motherboard as it will provide
    some uppgrade path later on. Any sugestions on a good 6600GT card to go
    along with it ?

    My current choices are:

    Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4
    Asus A8V-E Deluxe K8T890
    Microstar K8N Neo4 Diamond nForce4
    Also if you could point out what wattage Power supplie should I use ?
    Since high powered power supplies (over 400 Watts) are kinda expensive
    around here(Sweden) I was thinking of using something around 350 too 400
    watts. Will it be enough, considering that computer will NOT be
    overclocked and will only have one SATA HD, Geforce 6600GT and one DVD
    burner ? Any sugestions for a good QUIET cpu cooler ?
    Any advice is welcome.

    Does the nForce4 chipset have a reputation for stability or is it too
    new to know yet? If it overclocks easily that is a good sign.
