Building a P4 system
Jetjockey1 Oct-21-01 05:25 PM
Im building a P4 system using a 1.5GHz Intel chip, an Intel D850GBCAL motherboard, InWin 300 watt power supply, 512 rambus memory, Radeon VE video card, 3COM DVF modem, Yamaha CRW2100EZ CD-RW cd-rom, and a Sony 3 1/2 inch floppy.
Should I assemble this using the same instructions for building a PIII system found on this site or are there special caveates that I should look for?
This is my first system, any suggestions and help will obviously be appreciated.
Thanks
Steven

I have not built any P4 computers. I have not recommend them because of the high cost. The build you own computer how-to articles should provide some good general guidance. http://support.intel.com/support/processors/pentium4/intnotes.htm#Integrating_a_Pentium_4_Processor-Based_System should be useful for the P4 installation.

Well, I found most of the answers myself. The larger part of the information came from Intel's site itself thanks to lbyard. This was truely a plug and play setup. The only thing that needed to be changed was the time in the BIOS setup and to switch the BIOS from the default setting to Plug and Play so that the system would detect the hard drive. After that it was as simple as putting in the Windows XP disc and waiting for everything to load.
