Another new system thread...
I am building a new system for a friend at work. She wants something simple and cheap just to use for business and general web browsing. The computer she has now is very old, either a P3 or an early P4, so anything would be an improvement.
So I was thinking of going with an AMD processor. But since I have always used Intel I don't know much about AMD and would like to get some other opinions. Here is what I have selected.
Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz
Motherboard : MSI K9VGM-V AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX
Memory : Kingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
HDD : Western Digital Caviar SE WD400JD 40GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150
The one thing I am not sure about is the memory. I always have a hard time with that, making sure the voltage is compatable with the mobo.
