    I was thinking of upgrading some parts.

    These are the parts I already have:
    AMD Athlon 2500+ Barton
    Thermaltake Silent Boost with Ducting Mod and AS3
    Geforce FX 5950 256MB
    Audigy2 zs Platinum 7.1
    7.1 speakers Inspire T7700
    (2) Western Digital Hard Drives 120GB SATA150 7200RPM 8mb buffer
    IBM Deskstar Hard Drive 160GB External USB2.0 7200RPM 8mb buffer
    Sony 8x DVDRW Dual format
    Sony 52x CDROM
    NEC Floppy
    Aerogate II Temp Monitor/Fan Controller

    What brands and models are the best!?
    Motherboard: Asus, Abit, MSI, DFI, Soyo, ETC....
    Memory: Kingston, Corsair, OCZ, ETC... Dual Channel only please!

    All Suggestions will be honored and appreciated!!!

    Most people seem to recommend the ASUS A7N8X Deluxe as a good, solid AMD motherboard. As for RAM, I use Corsar myself, but there's a lot of other good brands out there. Someone else might be able to help with that one.

    These are mobo's that ya should consider;
    Abit NF7-S (ver. 2.0)
    Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
    DFI Lanparty NFII Ultra-AL
    EPoX EP-8RDA3+

    I like the Corsair XMS range myself but some others prefer Kington's HyperX and others go for OCZ's but get either PC3200 or PC3500 but make sure that whichever ya get has 2-3-2-6 timings.

    Thanks for the good help!

    I was also looking into to those three brands. I am not sure which one has the best ratings though. I also have been keeping in mind memory timings. I still am not sure which to choose from. I guess price is the next step.

    I like Asus preferably, but I think Abit has an awesome looking board. Then again DFI got really good ratings, but the are expensive. I need some more feedback and information on these boards.

    Much Appreciated for thoes replies!!!

    I will look into some more information on the products. I will post them here as well.

    Thanks again!!
