    Just piece it together yourself. For one, its a fun experience, two, you will feel a lot better about it, and lastly and most importantly it will save you some money.

    But if you want a 3.4E gaming system, put it in an ASUS P4C800E Deluxe with some decently timed (2-2-2-6, 2-3-2-6) 3200/3500 memory.

    Depending how much money you have to spend on graphics, which is the most important part, you can get a 9700 Pro for about $200 or less now, or you can go high end and get a 9800 Pro for around $250. Don't really need to spend any more than that.

    Excellent choice. With PCI-Express, the new new socket for the Prescott cores, and BTX cases coming out, it'd be a very good idea to wait for the new tech :thumb: . : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6

    That would be a wise idea, however all of this stuff isn't being dumped on us until April.
