    OK this is a work in progress computer. I ran out of money towards the end so it is not completely finished. But tell me what you think so far, things i should have done instead or other options i should have looked at.
    Ok here is the setup:

    MB i875P 5P1A4D IC7 ABIT ATX (Qty=1,Price=130.00)
    CPU P4 2.4CGHz 800M 478P/512K HT RT (Qty=1,Price=172.00)
    DDR 2x256 MB TWINX 512-3200LLPT COR RT (Qty=1,Price=170.00)
    KB LOGITECH|OPTICAL DESKTOP BLK (Qty=1,Price=31.00)
    FD 1.44MB MITSUMI (Qty=1,Price=6.50)
    CPU FAN INTEL P4 SPARK7+ A1715 RT (Qty=1,Price=25.99)
    CDRW LITEON 52X32X52X LTR-52327S BK (Qty=1,Price=45.99)
    ETHRNT LINKSYS|LNE100TX 10/100 v5.1 (Qty=1,Price=16.99)
    The case is a Xaser III with 420watt silent pure power ps
    This is where i ran out of money so you can see theres no video card yet nd no monitor.
    For a month or so until i save enough money up i will be using my old video card from my old computer, ok dont give me too much crap about this i know why did i buy this in the first place but i will be using a
    Voodoo 64mb card
    And a cheap monitor thats about 7 years old

    Ok tell me what you think

    THanks

    Change to 1x512. Then buy another 1x512 with your Vid card. Or buy 2x512 now. Preferably PC-3500, but i have no problems with 3200 either.

    GeForce FX5600 Ultra. ATI9600 or higher.

    I'm in a position close to yours... I'm gonna go with the 9800 non-pro, and hope to overclock it near or to pro speeds. I'd rather have it than the 9700 pro because it's not far off being the same clocked speeds and it's been updated a bit since the 9700 series. Just my two cents.
