i am going to configure my dream machine. it may not be the top of the line, but that much i can afford.
OS: Win XP Prof 32 bit
PROCESSOR: Core i7 i920 D0 2.66GHz
MOTHERBOARD: MSI X58 Pro
GRAPHICS CARD: Palit GTX260 896MB GDDR3 SONIC or Sapphire HD4850 512MB GDDR3 (which one is better?)
RAM: Corsair TR3X3G-1333 C9 3GB Kit ( can i go for 4 GB ? )
PSU: Corsair TX 650 (is it sufficient? )
HARD DRIVE: Two Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB hard drives in RAID 1
CABINET: NZXT Guardian 921
is my configuration is all right? my goals are playing games, to learn 3ds max, photoshop.
i want to know does win xp support 4GB RAM? some people are saying that it can support max 3 GB ! is it true?
can anyone guide me how to set up RAID 1?
i was going through tutorials & mobo manual downloaded from MSI website. they are saying i have to put RAID drivers in a floppy from where i should install. but nowadays cabinets do not a floppy drive & i'm in no mood buying so. so what should i do?
should i configure hard drives in bios to RAID before installing windows? or i can do that later on?
lots of question. don't whether i picked up right forum category.
many many thanks to all of you. i can proceed whenever i will get green signal from you all.
