Ok , first let me tell you that there is nothing wrong with the hardware except for the TI-4400 (because that he got from me a long long time ago..and now I got it back). This is what I got for free (also look at the pics - "evidence"): ASUS P4GPL-X, PCI-Express 16X. With it I also got a P4 @ 3.0Ghz and memory (cheap, same model/speed/brand - Elixir DDR400). No cooler what so ever, that he has on his C2D rig and it's a Zalman. ABIT IS7 Series P4 mobo, I know nothing about this one.. It's only the mobo + drivers etc. Graphic cards: 1.Broken PNY nVidia GeForce TI-4400 (very old). 2.Creative labs Riva TNT2 (even older). 3.PowerColor ATI R96-HD3, AGP8X, 256Mb (Radeon 9600Pro) with stock cooler. If you look at my current system specs (and ignore that I am building a Phenom based rig that is waiting for it's graphics card and Asus Vento case..), can anyone tell me if I should put this current system "on the shelf" and build up the P4 and use that instead for the F@H - 24/7 rig instead? All I need for the mobo is a good cooler, and a graphics card. And speaking of graphics cards.. The ATI R96-HD3 is it better or worse than my 9800SE? My 9800SE is soon to be unlocked and will then use all 8 pipes, but it has only 128Mb ram compared to the R96-HD3.. Thankful for any replies given. The memory that followed the X-Series mobo is "elixir" DDR 400, but can it use faster/better? I would also like to thank my friend Igge for the free computer parts.
