    Question New Shuttle System! YIPPIE!

    All, I've got a nice new little Shuttle SN41G2v3 case that I'd like to fill with goodies. Let me see what the experts think and can recommend about:

    It needs an AMD cpu. -I was looking at the: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ w/ 333 fsb. Any other recommendations?

    Also, for some memory, how about the: Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200C2PT. Think that's cool?

    And for a harddrive: Maxtor 160GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive, MODEL 6Y160M0

    I'm up for any recommendations or suggestions.

    Thanks a ton! -cb

    i wouldnt recommend a barton cpu for a barebone, they run too hot and theyre a little pricey (i can buy an athlon 64 2800 for less than a XP 3000+)

    Get a sempron 2500 or 2600. And you probably dont need that XMS RAM, Corsair Value Select is fine. The hard drive is fine, if u need 160GB

    Thanks. How much faster will an XP 3000+ be over a Sempron 2500 or 2600?

    Corsair Value Select sounds good. I'll go with that!

    Thanks again! -cb

    a sempron 2600 is 1.83ghz, 333fsb, 256kb cache. the 3000+ is 2.00ghz, 333fsb, 512kb cache. Not faster by much, certainly not worth the price difference

    If your board has any overclocking properties at all you could overclock a sempron to better speeds than your barton and it maybe even be cooler than the barton.

    Cool. Maybe i'll go with the sempron then. Don't know if I can overclock or not with my shuttle board.

    Thanks again! You guys rock!

    It's a XPC right?... That is a nForce2 chipset so you should be able to overclock fairly well.

    Though i would say nforce 2 is good enough at stock, certainly the best performing chipset for socket A processors.

    I'd go for a Mobile Athlon XP, overclocking or not. It will produce less heat and perform better than similarly-priced Semprons, two qualities that are particularly valuable for a system like this. The 2400, low-voltage 2400, or 2500 would be best for overclocking, but a better model (2600, 3000) would be better if you just want stock performance with no overclocking.
