    Need to build a system for work.

    Hello Everyone.. I have a SGD$600-700 budget to build a system for work..

    I just need the motherboard, cpu and ram (512 should be good right?

    The rest has been handled..

    Please give me suggestions for the system.. Thanks..

    p.s. Intel should be better for heat management since its a system for work right?

    Oh I forgot.. I need the casing and powersupply as well.. That would take SGD$100-150?

    Please help me asap.. Thanks.. Its an emergency.

    Um, Typical Office Work? But maybe sometimes for gaming too..

    Btw, why Abit and not Asus?

    it is obvious... since your using it for work... then get a amd setup
    its cheap too..
    abit nf7-s S$197
    athlon xp 1700 tbred b / or barton 2500 S$110/S$178 (level 5) check all the shops find for green chip(1700)
    geforce 4 ti4200 $150++
    2x256mb twisterx twinmos ddr 400 $156
    segate barrcuda 80gb S$121
    floppy disk abt $16
    dvd-cdrw tdk cyclone $105
    buy a cheap casing wif side panel = $60

    as for heat magment... as long as ur not overclocking dun worry...

    heck my com is running on a 400mhz overclock and still i am using the orginal heatsink...no problems here...

    you can get a better graphic card with the spare money... say a ati radeon 9500 to softmod to a 9700pro... or get a 9500pro???

    if you get this then you can do much more then work...

    erm sorry...im biased towards abit ...many ppl like it..

    AMD is cheaper and better if u want...get a 1700+or 1800+ whichever cpu is cheapest...then get either a nf7-s or an a78nx or sumthin..then get pc2100

    maybe vrforums shd have an inbuilt currency autoconverting script :p
    One of the most addictive web-based game

    www.goldentowns.com

    Playing this web game which claims that the in-game gold is backed by real gold. Quite a vibrant community out there. Seems like the whole bitcoin thingie is spreading to the online gaming world. They are coming up with their own crypto-currency as well. Look for me, i am cccp1979lcw inside!
