Default new system

2800+ Sockel-A Barton
Abit NF7-S nForce 2 Sockel-A Lan/Sound/FW/SATA
256MB Corsair CL2 DDRAM PC400 CMX256A-3200 * 2
Seagate Barracuda SerialATA V 80GB(ST380023/13AS)
graca : waiting a bit longer is the best thing to do, isn't it?
Pioneer (B) DVD-120S 16x/40x IDE Slot-In (Bulk)

This would cost me 581.44 @ K&M Elektronik
What do you guys think?
Is it possible to buy a PIV system with +- the same budget that would give me better OC results? What should I buy then?

case :
Coolermaster ATC-200C-MX2 :: 189
or
Coolermaster ATC-201C-SX2 :: 209

Does anyone know the differnce between them ?

thnx a lot

the AMD system is fine. a P4 will overclock better but you'll pay the price for it!

But then I have to be lucky to buy 2 sticks with those winbond chips (don't know the name exactly)

I know how the cases look, but the one with black is cheaper than the not-painted-one. And I can't figure out why.
And I'll buy my case @ colorcase/DURON

take the ddr pc3200 or pc3500, almost always with the winbound chips (never seen one with other chips)

gvd, they don't sell twinmos
I'll have a look @ funcomp

mod :
256MB DIMM DDR PC400 TwinMOS 49,99 or
256MB DIMM DDR PC466 TwinMOS 69,99

And you're certain I'll get corsair-like results?

mod 2 :
weird ****, seems like I can't order 2 sticks of twinmos pc400 at the same time! And if I buy the pc466 it costs all together 579.94

SO, is the twinmoss PC466 better than the corsair PC400 C2 ?

TwinMOS PC3200 is mostly Mtec chips.
And even the BH5 model won't be as good as corsair.
I got them and they run 400MHz 2-2-2-6 but with quite some effort. (2.9 Vdimm and not 100% stable)

The upside is, they can go pretty high in MHz on EZ settings and are loads cheaper

Corsair it is then.
Would there be a big difference in overclocking between the 2800+ & 2500+ ?

Abit IC7 i875P 800MHz FSB S-ATA/SND/U2
Intel Pentium IV 2.6 GHz 800MHz (BOX)
Pioneer (B) DVD-120S 16x/40x IDE Slot-In (Bulk)
Seagate Barracuda SerialATA V 80GB(ST380023/13AS)
256MB Corsair CL2 DDRAM PC400 CMX256A-3200 * 2

673.94

What do you guys think of this? Will this setup leave me enough room for overclocking?
edit : Is the abit IC7 as good as the Asus P4C800 ?
