PROLiNK WN2200 Wireless-N 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter Preview

PROLiNK WN2200 Wireless-N 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter is my new USB WiFi module for my dream system. My supplier gave me Wireless-N version instead of G version that matches my wireless router. Does it improve the connection with Wireless-N standard?

Yes. I got myself a SAPPHIRE HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI-E. It is silent efficiency edition. The heat sink is different than the reference design heat sink. And it looks cooler too. I am looking forward to see its performance in action. Can’t wait to play games with it.

Corsair Twin2X4096-6400C4DHX vs Kingston KHX6400D2LLK2/4G

Continued from ASUS P5Q PRO vs GIGABYTE EP45-DS3

Okay… I have selected a motherboard already. It’s time to choose a pair of memory modules to fit in my motherboard. There are DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules in the market now. New product like DDR3 memory should be faster than DDR2 memory, right? Not exactly. DDR3 memory has higher latencies than DDR2 memory. Besides, I checked on lot of review, DDR3 does not provide much improvement to games. And it is very pricey now. I selected 4GB PC 6400 DDR2 in my system. Note – Windows XP 32bits and Windows Vista 32bits can only use up to around 3GB memories. Therefore, I am planning to get 64bits operating system. Or just stick to 32bits OS with 3GB RAM.
