I've just been reading about the Intel D805 chip's and they seem to be cracking value for money. I'm upgrading from an Athlon 1200 so to be honest anything is an upgrade! I'm looking to spend up to £600 or so, including graphics card, case, psu, cooler, ram etc. At the moment I only have EIDE disks but can buy SATA if necessary. Most of my usage is internet / email, I'll be increasinly editing video (mpeg2) though so this is why I like the idea of the dual core 805. I'd also like to be able to play the odd game, battlefield 2 etc would be a bonus. I saw this spec and was considering tweaking this setup (cheers Raikiri): MB-116-AS Asus P5ND2 SLi nForce4 SLi (LGA775) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-116-AS) £59.95 £59.95 CP-116-IN Intel Pentium 4 805 Dual Core "LGA775 Smithfield" 2.6GHz (533FSB) - Retail (CP-116-IN) £73.95 £73.95 MY-000-PA Patriot Signature 1GB (2x512MB) PC5300 667MHz DDR2 Dual Channel Kit (PSD21G667K) (MY-000-PA) £55.95 £55.95 HD-023-WD Western Digital Caviar Special Edition 80GB 800JD SATA-II 8MB Cache - OEM (HD-023-WD) £29.95 £29.95 CD-018-AS Asus DVD-E616P1 DVD-ROM (Black) - Retail (CD-018-AS) £11.95 £11.95 CA-048-AN Antec SLK3800BUK Black Quiet Midi Tower Case - 400W SmartPower PSU (CA-048-AN) £51.95 £51.95 GX-045-LT Leadtek WinFast PCX6600GT-TDH GeForce PCX6600 GT 128MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-045-LT) £69.95 £69.95 Subtotal £353.65 VAT £61.89 Total £415.54 Any ideas / thoughts welcome. I'm not in a huge rush to upgrade so if I'm better off waiting for another chipset line etc then just say. Cheers.
