Hello all -
So - after 6 years of gaming my Gateway FX6800-01e developed swollen/woofed caps and a hard drive crash that are screaming: "replace me now!"
Having always in the past schlubbed over the big-box and partook of the on-hand wares, I decided enough is enough. I want some control here.
Not having unlimited cash (who does?) I plan to harvest what's still decent and/or recently replaced - so included in this build are a few "keepers"
These items (or near enough) are shown in the build list - as I wanted to ensure compatibility. I hate last minute surprises...
The keepers are as follows:
1 Storage HD (almost 24 hours of use on it as of now...)
2 The case & case fans
3 Video Card (good and not horribly old yet, but could be better and easily upgraded later)
4 Optical Drive (doesn't matter & can be upgraded easily if required)
This violates my budget a bit, but can probably pull it off.
I'd really appreciate any comments - especially if harsh...
