    also what does SMP mean?
    Actually means symmetric multiprocessor.

    Ok, I went to www.nvidia.com and I think they have already sold me an FX, I think I will wait for this card and buy it as soon as it is released.

    The Audigy platinum looks like the way to go also. Also I want the p4 3 gig instead of the AMD, I dunno I just like intel better.

    Also, will windows xp pro handle 2 gig of memory?

    And could some one link me to that motherboard info plz, thanks.

    what brand of RDR ram should I get?

    And also the mobo?

    after I work this out, then I can look at power supplies and fans and cases right?

    Man this sytem is gonna rock, but hell it's gonna cost a lot! :)

    Intel Pentium 4 3.06G (533Mhz FSB) = $1245
    256M RDRAM PC-1066 Kingston = $280 X 4 = $1120
    Asus P4G8X Intel E7205 Chipset (Granite Bay) = $390
    Nvidia Geforce FX (NV30) = $1000 (approx)
    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum Digital Entertainment 6.1 = $475
    Western Digital 100G 7200RPM ATA-100 (8Mb buffer) = $329 X 2 = $658
    Pioneer DVD-106S 16x 40x cdrom Slot Load = $95
    LiteOn 52x 24x 52x = $144 (for high speed copying)
    Sony CPD-G520 21" FD Trinitron CRT = $1695
    Skyhawk Case - Jupiter = $220
    Antec True Power 550W = $200



    GRAND TOTAL = $7242


    While you're spending up, you may want to consider replacing the components you listed with the ones below ;).

    Replace the Sony CPD-G520 21" with;

    29" ViewSonic PerfectView = $4760

    Coz everyone wants more inches :)

    Replace the Pioneer DVD-106S with;

    Pioneer A05 DVR-A05P DVD-R/RW & CD-R/RW OEM kit = $550

    Why only have CD-R/RW, when you can have DVD-R/RW! I have an A05, and it's great :cool: !

    Replace the Skyhawk Case - Jupiter with;

    Vapochill P4 = $1075

    Instead of getting a standard case, why not get a vapor phase refrigeration system to keep your CPU nice and cool ;) (About -35 degrees C :cool: :cool: ). Tom's Hardware used a similar setup to get a P4 3.06GHz to run at 4.1GHz!! And it was stable!!!

    THIS WOULD TAKE YOU GRAND TOTAL TO $11617!!! BARGAIN!!!


    With a machine like this, it would be THE fastest home user rig I've ever heard of. It would do pooz all over the PC Powerplay beast which costs a lot more!!

    LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    : party ha : party ha : party ha


    man that cracked me up for a cool 15 minutes.
    :D

    But seriously,

    Intel Pentium 4 3.06G (533Mhz FSB) = $1245
    256M RDRAM PC-1066 Kingston = $280 X 4 = $1120
    Asus P4G8X Intel E7205 Chipset (Granite Bay) = $390
    Nvidia Geforce FX (NV30) = $1000 (approx)
    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum Digital Entertainment 6.1 = $475
    Western Digital 100G 7200RPM ATA-100 (8Mb buffer) = $329 X 2 = $658
    Pioneer DVD-106S 16x 40x cdrom Slot Load = $95
    LiteOn 52x 24x 52x = $144 (for high speed copying)
    Sony CPD-G520 21" FD Trinitron CRT = $1695
    Skyhawk Case - Jupiter = $220
    Antec True Power 550W = $200

    That looks the way to go for me.

    Would I need more cooling fans?

    And does the case come with it's own lights?

    Also what else does the case come with? could you please explain them thanks.

    Much apreciated brashquido.:)

    I believe that the Granite Bay only supports DDr...in dual channel of course. Performing real close to RDRAM...especially with good memory like Cosair XMS. RDRAM is going out of style...for now...and its so freaking expensive when you can get DDr for half of what RD cost.

    In my opinion is 2 gigs of memory is a overkill for no reason. I have a gig on mine its like in air. A gig would e more than enough for you. You can spend that on another useful component.

    And the Intel must be just for braggin rights....cuaz if performance was the only thing in mind...than you can see how AMD overperforms by standing up to an Intel 3 gigger with just a 2.2 clock.

    Yes I'd love to see those RDRAM RIMM modules go home in those DDR SDRAM DIMM slots. 2x sticks of any good PC2100 will do. :devil:

    I have a 5 pound sledge hammer that says that RDRAM will fit in those DDR slots ;)

    Good point though, I didn't even stop to think about that. You might want to replace that PC1066 stuff with;

    512mb DDR RAM PC-3500 CORSAIR XTREME MEMORY SPEED 433mhz CAS2 = $465 X 2 = $930

    Well that's the thing, if 1 gig of DDR ram will do the trick, then that's the way to go.

    Also I just don't like AMD for some reason and I want an intel for the name I guess. "Intel, the name you can trust" ;)

    Also I think just one HD will be enough.

    If there is bugger all performance difference, I always seem to go for the underdog.

    AMD, keep the *******s (Intel) honest!;)

    Can you remember what we used to pay for CPU's before AMD was competitive? I'll give you a big tip, there was NO way (unless it was hot) you could buy a performance CPU for under $200!

    Same thing is happening with ATI and Nvidia at the moment. I paid over $600 for my Geforce 2 Pro less than two years ago. At the same time the Geforce 2 Ultra (which was the beez kneez at the time) cost over $900.

    Now that Nvidia are getting beaten around the head like a red headed step child by ATI, you can land their flagship 3D gaming card for under $500! The 9700 Pro which is THE fastest 3D gaming card you can get atm can be had for under $650.
