i know agp 8x sounds tempting enuff, but the prices will be pretty expensive.

the costs so far:

Ledtek gf4ti4200 + Ledtek 415D nforce motherboard = 150
512ddr ram, roughly 80-90
AthlonXP2000 + heatsink/fan = 80-90

= max 320...which is pretty damn cheap if u ask me?

also wats the reason for the geforce price drop...the 9700 by any chance?
Could ya post the prices in euros?

how come all of europe has had to adopt them and you brits are sticking with your pounds..?


The nforce is a good board, as long as you avoid "superstability" mode. Also, a ti4200 is a fantastic card.

But you'd be much better off waiting for the Nforce2. It shouldn't be too expensive. And like it was said earlier, the GF4s will be dropping in price shortly. The lower priced gf4 will compensate for a higher priced mobo.

One more thing, get a cheaper gf4! That leadtek card is one of the most expensive ones out there!

Believe me, a gf4 with puny cooling will OC as well as that. Besides, it's mem speed that matters more. Just find a card with 'faster' memory on-board!

You're making a wise choice going with AMD.


As for the OS, PLEASE, PLEASE get Win2k over XP.


As for a new mobo, it's ALWAYS a good idea to reformat with a new mobo. Don't bother with repair installs because they are one of the worst things you could possibly do.

I don't know what nForce2 will cost, the version without graphics might be even cheaper because they claim the 415 on the original actually had the graphics onboard but disabled, and the nForce2 version doesn't.
So, to reiterate, I don't know. I got my nForce 415 for $90. You can get a 420 now for $70 (if you know where to look)

Cheaper than that would be an achievement

I didn't see that part earlier, sorry

well, 150 = ledtek ti4200 64megs and ledtek nforce in the same bundle

150 inc VAT = 234.437 EUR = 228.060 USD

so basically wateva way u look at it, u r either getting a free nforce motherboard, or a damn cheap ti card. the only bad point is the 64megs and the ageing motherboard.

i mean the cheapest ti4200 card in the UK is 110 inc VAT, the ledtek one is about 10 more expensive. so 150 for that card and a motherboard is definitely a deal. that means the motherboard is under 40 (thats about $60)

most ti4200's with 128 are at least 140inc vat, so add a mother board, and ur already getting close to 200.

also, for Corporal Dan, u asked for that pricing of my complete package listed before in Euros....so 320 = 500.132 EUR .
