I'm about to build myself a new computer, and this is what ive got so far...
New comp (http://secure.newegg.com/app/WishHistoryReview.asp?position=HISTORY&submit=VIEW&ID=316702)
If anyone wouldnt mind, i would appreciate it if a couple people could look it over and make sure there isnt anything big missing from it.
Also, if anyone has a better mobo in mind, i would take some suggestions on that as well, though i want to stay cheap and stable.

the mobo is good. the oem radeon isnt. most oem ati cards are clocked lower than the retail ATI cards.

aslo why spend 200 bucks on a case and buy crappy ram?

i would ditch the creative sound card and use the onboard sound, works for me.

yeah didnt even see that, the nforce onboard sound is the best onbard sound u'll get, dont need the creative card.

okay, i may stick with the sound card anyway, cause my old comp (this one) could use a decent card, still using some screwe dup onboard atm.

Which Ram would you reccomend? i picked out the stuff i did because its cheap and has the lifetime warranty.

Kingston HyperX, Corsair XMS, Mushkin

Geil is ok

Why spend that much on rounded IDE cables??? You need to buy 2 ATA133 cables also.

corsair or crucial ram would be good for ya, i dont see ya overclocking so just get what ya need.

lol if you need a new system I could sell you most of mine lol


Unless you've set your mind on AMD which is still cool with me.
