    Newegg is probably the only U.S. store you'll need to shop at.

    You can try Google. Otherwise, I should be writing one for TweakTown shortly after Christmas.

    The Opterons are good if you want to overclock. Otherwise, it doesn't make much difference.

    Newegg is one of the few good online retailers, and probably the best. There are other places that I'd consider shopping at, but I rarely see any reason to.

    Cool Re: Build me a computer for both computation and game

    Ok I think to have (No OC runing both Linux and WinXP)
    CPU: X2 3800+ or 4200+
    Mobo ASUS A8N-E or MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum
    (Guess will not need SLI as I do not need second video card)
    Hard Drive 250G SATA Seagate
    Video Card will choose a 6800 (have not decide if I will go for 7800GT, BTW what game has to work with only 7800 but not 6800?)
    RAM 2G (Dual 1G)

    Now I am thinking to choose a good case and PSU to make it silent
    Then I might be able to save my money for a Dell 2005fpw :)

    Or save money to buy sth else later
    Please give any suggestion you can

    BTW I am considering Antec Sonata II or P 150 ( but lots of people say the PSU in 150 is not good)

    180 seems nice, but it need another PSU and totally too expensive. As I do not do OC, I guess I do not need it. am I right?

    Any decent 500W PSu ith a 24-pin power connector should be fine. What PSU comes with the case?

    The MSI K8N NEO-4 Platinum is by far the better motherboard. And it will outclock that ASUS board hands down.
    GIgabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
    AMD FX8120 @ 4GHz
    Patriot 1866MHz EL series 2X4GB DDR3
    Powercolour HD 6970 2GB w/XFX 8800GT 512MB Hybrid PhysX
    Creative X-FI titanium HD w/Technics class A 300W amp and tower speakers
    PC P&C 500W PSU
    2TB Seagate
    Coolermaster 690II w/Corsair H100 tucked under the hood

    A 450W isn't enough.

    The MSI is better, as Casecutter said.

    There aren't any games that a 6800 won't play, but a 7800 will play them with higher visual settings and higher framerates.
