    New System! What do you guys think?

    Well i am getting sick of AMD so I decided to go intel. This is going to be my Dream Machine and is going to kick some serious as* but since i dont know to much about intel i was wondering if you guys could help me out. Here is what i got so far. O btw i am trying to keep the price under 2g's

    9800 Pro VisionTek Xtasy 128mb Version: $399.99 TigerDirect

    Intel P4 3.0 ghz HT 800mhz FSB: Retail $428.00 Newegg

    Antec 480w Truepower: $92.99 Newegg

    Lite on 48x24x48x16 Cdrom/cdrw/dvd: Retail $65 Newegg

    WD 120GB: $134.99 TigerDirect

    ABIT IC7-G: $212.00 Retail Newegg

    Corsair TWINX XMS3200 DC 512 256x2: $164.99 TigerDirect

    And some random floopy drive.. I am still looking for a case.

    Please feel free to say what you think and what you would get rather then a certain product.

    Thanks

    Extreme

    It looks tight Extreme. You get an Antec PSU with an Antec case. Thats what I have and I'm very happy with it. Why don't you hold off for the 256MB 9800?

    sure you can get the 3ghz proccessor or you can always go for the 2.4C and overclock it past 3ghz, which would save you some money. but then again overclocking a 3ghz would be even better. eh who cares whetheryou got for the 2.4c or the 3ghz your rig is still gonna rock overclocked or not. have fun

    Ya i could but the reason i am getting the 3ghz is because i dont think i am going to do any overclocking. But if i do o/c it will just be a very mild. I will have fun

    Real nice setup man. Only suggestion i'd have is goin SCSI, and then just get an 80GB HDD. SCSI is amazing, it's definitly worth the money.

    check office max for the WD drive. I just bought a Special Edition 120 for $139 with $80 worth of mail in rebates. Final cost is like $59.

    amen to that, use a coupon too

    U can get a liteon for cheaper at staples. The Cendyne drives are usually Lite-on. Go to staples, look at the back of box, and it tells ut the model number. if its LTR u got a liteon. Use rebates and coupon, and its cheap
