Anyone wish they\'d done things differently? 10k rpms? That sort o thing? Tell me what not to screw up, please.
I\'m hoping to have the parts by Monday so I can build one PC to be my orchestra sample player. I figure I can build a computer before EWQL Orch will jibe with my OSX. And I\'m starting to get the shakes.
Of course, I\'m trying to do it for cheap.
Already dismissed the shuttle PC box because it only has two RAM slots and I don\'t wanna pay for the 1g chips but we have to have 2g in these machines, no?
I always build my machines. You save about 66% doing it yourself. I get all of my PC gear from Zipzoomfly.com They are all handpicked too! I stay away from generics and stick with true Intel components, (Motherboards and CPU)
Mainly a name brand like Corsair or Kingston. Some brands offer a lifetime warranty with their RAM, definetely go for those. I wouldnt bother trying to save dollars by using a no-name brand.
Main thing is, make sure to buy the SAME brand if you are buying more than one stick. Some people even go so far as to buy the ram from the same batch of production. This can be determined by the serial numbers on the stick. I dont bother going to this length though.
