  1. Get a better one! Get the Pentium D 3.2 or 3.4! I used Pentium D 3.4 (the fastest available in the market) and i like it!

    You didn’t mention about RAM. This is important! Get 1GB of DDR2! I recomend not to use DDR.

    Credit me PayPal : jaynier@streamyx.com

  2. terence – Why? You want me to send a despatch boy to pick up a unit from you for me, issit?

    Jaynier – Got lah, Corsair 1GB. Pentium D2.8

  3. no…

    wait after march then buy your PC. the P4 is obsolete already and in 2 months time there will be price cuts on Intel CPU prices. 7600GS is really castrated. Get at least the 7600GT. It is probably 100 ringgit more. Here’s what I would recommend if you REALLY need a new PC right now.

    Rather than the intel P4 2.8 get the AMD A64 3800+ X2, get the 7600GT rather than GS version and 320 GB hard disk. It will be faster than that config.

  4. Get more RAM.

    Play games right? Make sure your LCD Monitor refresh fast enuf, else u regret later.

    Hmm. Got buy 1 free 1? If got, pass me the free one. hehe..

  5. Get an AMD processor instead of a Intel…
    Although AMD is some what less “popular” it has won over Intel in many performance tests…better…

  6. Muffin is right.. Lilian.. Papa BoK only sells AMD computers .. but i’ll check with him later.. and update you .. ya.. 🙂
    Also let me know if you are using it for gaming or not..??

  7. Mike K – Wuah…2.0 GB RAM? Kerng lor…my Dell now is only 512.

    Mama BoK – Yeah, I heard about AMD too. But I used to own an Athlon long time ago, I know they are improved now, but still the experience from the last time sort of turned me off.

    Muffin – Previously, my Athlon gave me tonnes of problems and after that, I am still wary of it.

    keropokman – My kids got their own DRT (dunno what monitor lah) so mine is not so much gaming lah. I where got time to sit down play games ler. Later my whole house upside down.

    rodney – Eh, you referring to OZ or Msia or both countries also the same? But I cannot wait wor…I want it NOW!

    gb – Core 2 Duo and Dual Core tak sama somemore? Aiyor, headache lah.

  8. Haiya… malaysia la.. 🙂

    Prices in malaysia is even cheaper..

    So rather than getting that specs.. change it to below (prices from lowyat computer zone catalog http://pictr.com/pricelist/czone.pdf ) (ringgit):

    Core 2 Duo E 6300 – 590
    Asus P5B -550
    Cosair PC667 1GB Ram – 400
    Samsung 8MB 320GB – 330
    Winfast 7600GT – 525
    Apcer 19 in 1 card reader – 45
    Lite on dvd rw – 115
    17 inch LCD LG – 595
    Cooler Masert Centurion 5 with 380W – 330
    Logitech keyboard mouse – 56

    total 3536 ringgit

    or the alternative is:

    AMD AM2 X2 3600+ – 420
    ASUS M2NPV-VM -360

    Cosair PC667 1GB Ram – 400
    Samsung 8MB 320GB – 330
    Winfast 7600GT – 525
    Apcer 19 in 1 card reader – 45
    Lite on dvd rw – 115
    17 inch LCD LG – 595
    Cooler Masert Centurion 5 with 380W – 330
    Logitech keyboard mouse – 56

    total 3176 ringgit..

    both those config will run circles around the one that you specified.

    and no Core 2 Duo is not the same as the dual Core.. Core 2 Duo starts from E6300 but the Dual Core one is the old Pentium 4.. Runs hot and slow.

  9. Nice spec. This will save you time on photo processing.. You don’t need the bleeding edge stuff, unless money growth on tree 😉

  10. That specs look really hot lah…
    AMD Athlon last time memang got some bugs…but this new one better adi…
    I got the latest price list from PC Depot…cheap cheap stuff…no I don’t work for them but can send to u if u want so u can compare the price.
