Hi,

I am planning to go for a pc that has the following configuration:

-Intel Motherboard 865 GBF ( 800 MHz FSB)
-Intel P-6 2.6cGHz HT (800 Mhz)
- Hynix 512 MB DDR 400 RAM
- Samsung Hard disk 40 GB 7200 RPM

Is it a good configuration to go for?
Will the RAM performance increase if I go for 2x256 MB DDR 400 RAM rather than one stick of 512 MB DDR400 RAM for above said configuration?


Thanks in advance,
Ashish

The system is fairly decent.  But the other question is what kind of stuff do you plan to do with this system?  and what kind of applications will you be running?
Also what kind of price range are you looking at?  

Really the only thing I don't like about the parts you have there is the Samsung 40 Gig drive.  It's noisy...and is not as much of a standard hard drive (it will work.....but.....)  there are other brands that are more reputable for Drives.....

Maxtor, Western Digital, Seagate....etc etc...

basically I am planning to go for whatever is latest available so that later it doesnt become obsolete.

865 GBF has the dual channel support so it will support 2x256MB. But i would like to know how much performance difference will be there between single 512MB vs 2x256MB.

Also for CDRW I have the following three options. Which one will be better?

Samsung 52x 24x 52x
LG 52x 32x 52x
Sony 52x 32x 52x

LG is a better know brand for CDRW's....

The Intel 875 chipset is newer and better than the 865.  So if you are going for logenvity....skip the 865.

I dont really know what the percentage differences are between the ram.  I would gather or guess that it is probably around 33% or less.

actually 875 is not available at market now (In India retail market). so I have to go with 865 only. Same applies to other components which I am going to buy to assemble a pc.
As you said Samsung Hard disk is not good. Other option is Seagate. So should I go for Seagate 7200 rpm.

ya.  I prefer seagate....875's not available huh?  That's a bummer.  Been available for quite some time here in the states.  probably around 4 or 5 months.  Maybe more.
