    Do you want a complete system including case\monitor\keyboard etc or just specific parts like the ones you mentioned?

    Hard disk: I would move your existing 120GB drive to this system

    RAM: Corsair Value Select 2x512MB DDR400 kit - $80
    http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820145440

    Motherboard: Chaintech VNF4 Ultra - $83
    http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16813152049

    CPU: Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester - $130

    I'd change the PSU tp this. Better ratings on almost everything (including being 480W) and it's cheaper. I'd also try to find a way to fit a 6600GT in. A cheaper optical drive can be had, if necessary. The video card is certainly more important.

    I also recommend Raidmax for cheap, but good cases. This is mine, except it has room for two exhaust fans in the back, rather than the one shown in the picture.

    Your existing system with the 20GB HDD could make a nice Linux router/firewall/server or something along those lines.

    I dont recommend Thermaltake power supplies because of the low 12v rails, but I guess its adequate in this case.

    The 12v rail is identical to the Enermax's...

    No. The thermaltake has a total of 18A on the 12v. The Enermax has over 30A combined on the 12v (18+18).

    Now you know why I prefer Enermax to Thermaltake PSUs. In fact from personal experience the TT supplies are more suited to an AXP or older P4 machine with less-power hungry components and graphics cards.
