I'm building a computer for a local business I know but I'm not sure whether i should go for the Corsair CX430 which I actually have - or the CX500.
Here are the specs:
Intel Core i3 2100
2 x 2GB of 1333Mhz RAM
Western digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm - SATA 2
and a LG dvd drive - SATA 2
What do you guys think? Is 430 watts enough or should I go for 500??
I spent hours diagnosing OS issues only to spend even more hours re-installing Windows and apps only to have it crash hard again and now be un-recoverable. Turns out the Corsair P3-128 SSD I'm using isn't very reliable (read Newegg reviews now). Today's been a massive headache. I don't want to give up on SSD yet. I want to give it one more try but want to put reliability at the top of my feature list.
ok, i'm adding all my gadgets to my list, but i have a problem: my desktop pc isn't a official pc, i've built it... so, how do i do to add it to my list? i add all the pieces separately?
So far my plan is to get the following parts: - ZOTAC IONITX-F-E Intel Atom 330 - LG BD-ROM - CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) - PCI-e 4 port SATA2 (because MoBo only has 3 connectors and I plan to put a few more harddrives) On the software side, I'm gonna run Ubuntu and XBMC. Has anyone ever used this MoBo or can't recommend me another setup? Thanks in advance.
