I'm building a computer; is this a alright computer? Wed Dec 22, 2004 10:37:09 PM#10650Perm Link
Ok, so for Christmas my dad said I could get all the parts I need for a computer, but I used a couple of old parts. I was on a budget so...
Motherboard: Asus P4V8X-X
CPU: Pentium 4 2.26 Ghz w/ fan
Video card: Gigabyte Radeon 9250
Sound card: On-board.
Memory: Infinteon or something, 128MB DDR
Case: CasEdge, it's silver and stuff
Hard drive: Wesern Digital 20 GB, it's a bit used up, say, 4 years. ^^
CD drive: Liteon DVD-ROM drive 16x (CD speed is 48x)
Floppy drive: Some random one I had.
EDIT: This computer is for a front-end arcade thing.. the games take up about 10 gigs, so that's why it isn't a masterpiece. Iy'll be used for games only.
More RAM will help enormously. Emulators need CPU and RAM to run correctly. That's a pretty interesting use for a computer. I must consider doing the same to one of mine. Stick a few gamepads on it, instant game machine. Very nice idea.
2014 is going to be a good year. More content, more streamlining. Be a part of history!
Neat, good luck. Lotsa wiring for me with the joysticks and buttons. Good thing I'm using a interface called I-Pac, which takes out the hastle of hacking into a keyboard... and no ghost keys! ^^; Thanks for the advice, I'm turning in for the night, thanks, and have a good day/night.
