    Building new 'puter...

    I am pretty much a newbie when it comes to building computers, but I am going to give it a shot. How does this look for a system? :

    Chieftec Dragon Case (blue) w/420w PSU
    Soyo SY-KT333 DRAGON Ultra (Platinum Edition) board
    Athlon 2200+
    3x512MB Mushkin PC2700 DDR
    Leadtek ti4200 128MB Geforce4
    WD 120GB 8MB Buffer HD
    Plextor 40X CDRW
    Netgear FA311 NIC
    Coolermaster AAC-001

    This is what I have purchsed so far, does anybody have any suggestions as to what I else would good well with this system? I was going to go for a ti4600 or an ATI 9700, but from what I understand these cards are pretty much overkill at this point?

    TIA!

    The SY-Kt333 is a Sweet Board- The one I would go with is the new one just out - The SY-KT400 Dragon Ultra (Platinum Edition)

    Duzmor -

    Yeah, unfortunately I purchased the KT333 right before the KT400 was released (figures), otherwise I would have gone for it instead. Regardless, everything I have heard about the KT333 has been awesome...Except for the fact that the onboard NIC and audio don't work worth a darn.
