Some late breaking changes to the August guides are pretty relevant.
For the “high-end”:https://www.tongfamily.com/guide_to_pcs/2004/09/01/high_end_system_recommendations.html systems, First, taking into account the Silentpcreview.com information, I changed some of the components in the guide to the high end particularly the power supply and the case.
Switched the motherboard recommendation to the DFI Lan Party UT Nv3 250 Gb (love the name) mother board and went back to socket 754. This saves $200 going from Athlon 3500+ to Athlon 3000+.
Also switched the memory being used from the OCZ 3700EB ($307) to cheaper OCZ 3200 EL Platinum Rev 2 ($284). These also overclock very well in the DFI.
Net, net, these change lower the price of the high end system from $1,800 to $1500.
