Built it from scratch it was my first time doing this it was fun I would upload pics but I don't know how. If someone could tell me I would
This is my first new custom computer build in over 13 years!:
Computer case: Zalman ZM Z9-U3 Black Mid-Tower computer case Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard CPU processor: AMD FX-4300 3.8 GHz quad-core processor CPU cooler: Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler Power supply unit: Fractal Design Integra R2 500W power supply Hard drive: Western Digital 1 TB WD Black (WD1003FZEX) SATA III 7200 RPM hard drive w/64 MB cache DVD-ROM: Lite-On iHas124 Black 24x DVD-RW Dual-Layer burner Card reader: Sabrent CRW-UINB internal memory card reader/writer with USB 2.0 port Memory: 8 GB Crucial (2 x 4GB) Ballistix Sport PC3-12800 DDR3 RAM (expandable to 32 GB DDR3 RAM) Graphics card: EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 520 MHz graphics card with 1 GB GDDR3 1.2 GHz video RAM Operating system: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 x64 retail
All of the computer components from AVADirect were carefully selected and they all work perfectly! It cost me $630.95 (plus $64.53 S&H). Seperate items include the memory card reader which cost $10.99. The unused retail copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate that I got was from eBay. I bid $77.77 back in early December and won the DVD! The DVD actually cost $74 (plus $7.50 S&H).
If you add all of this up, the total cost for a new computer system cost $787.97 (including S&H).
The Windows Vista installation was started from scratch and it went successful without any major problems. Windows XP and Windows Vista driver support for the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard and graphics card are available; however, support is as-is, because these OSes are no longer fully supported and Windows XP will go out of support in a little over a month from now.
The old computer that I have out there in the garage will either be sold or taken to a recycling centre soon. Good riddance!
