    I would suggest going with the P4 3.0C processor, and some type of Springdale board, then just use a BIOS update to get the PAT boost. Check out the News on the TT home page for some baords including those BIOS updates.

    That cpu is running with the older 533 fsb (B type) and isn't the best buy IMHO.

    Get yourself a 800 fsb cpu instead, you can go for a slightly slower speed and it will still be a better buy. Try an find a I865 based mobo that uses dual ddr400 they are fast and cheap. :2cents:

    The ASUS P4P800 is a really cool new board. It has the 865pe chipset and support the new 800MHz P4s and has Dual DDR and 8x AGP.

    If you get an 865 chipset board and want to have a system that will be good for years, I'd go for the P4 3.0C which runs at 800MHz bus, instead of 533 like the 3.06.

    As far as a video card, the Radeon 9800 Pro seems nice and the new GeForce FX 9500 should be shipping soon. On board sound is good. It really depends on what you're going to do. If you're just doing some gaming and listning to music I think its okay. But, if you're going to spend the money on 5.1 or 6.1 speakers I'd say go for the Audigy 2 so you can play games with EAX, which is a surround format for games and a lot of games supports that now. Plus you'd be able to play DVD-Audio, which I'm now hooked on. As far as a case, I like the Cooler Masters and the new Wave Master looks really cool.

    I'd go for an Antec TruPower power supply. They're very quiet and have a special plug for your case fans to run them at a lower speed so they're quiet.
