This is my first attempt at putting together a system so please excuse my ignorance. I have been thinking of using an Asus P4T motherboard and an INTEL? PENTIUM? IV PGA478 CPU at 1.5 G. These will cost me approx. $350 US
Today I stopped by my computer store to pick up my new case and saw a bundle consisting of an Intel P4 PGA423 D850GBC mobo with an Intel P4 PGA423 1.5 ghz for $270.00.
In your opinion, which is the best combination to get? I don't want to cheap out for the sake of cheaping out, but I do want to get as much bang for my buck as possible.
Any expert opinions would be appreciated.
Thx in advance
PS Some folks are also telling me to get a
1.4ghz Athlon and DDR motherboard (cheaper and faster than a P4 at 1.5ghz.)
