quote: The great debate
(1) Is Pentium processors more reliable than AMD ones?
. I prefer AMD processors, because they perform great for my needs and I am not a big gamer. Some may argue that Intel is better for business applications. I respectfully disagree. I think they are equal here, but most large companies buy Dell's and they don't offer an AMD solution.
I am not against Intel, they have been the CPU king for sometime and they make a great product... but so does AMD. I like my options as a consumer right now as AMD is the king of dual-core right now. Let the back and forth go on for a while and bring prices down!
(2)Which Memory RAMs are the best ...Kingstone,Lixir,Spectec?
Corsair or GSKILL make the best RAM on the planet.
(3)for a harddisk .... which is better for a 200GB one ...Maxtor/Hitashi/WD?
Given the choices, Maxtor and WesternDigital are okay. I've had issues with Maxtor in the past, but it up to you. I did love IBM UltaStar SCSI drives... they sold the business to Hitachi... I imagine the DeskStar line from them is okay... My last IDE DeskStar (IBM branded) still works great--about five years old in an older system.
(4) for the intel D915GAV motherboard .... Is the Built-in VGA card a good one?
Integrated VGA? Yuk
! I can't imagine it would be good for much beyond web browsing and word processing. It depends on what you are doing... and I guess more importantly, your budget.
What are you looking to build and why?
