    Here is my list so far.
    ---------
    ASUS A7V333 or ASUS A7V266
    AMD XP 1900
    Soundblaster Audigy Gamer
    Lite On 16X DVD
    PNY GeForce 4 Ti 4200 64MB

    Only thing I'm confused on is the power supply. I won't be doing any overclocking, for now, just running it out of the box. i'm thinking I should go with a 350w but don't know. Should I get a 400w just to be safe? I heard Enermax is a good PSU but don't want to spend $100 just for power.

    A 350w PSU should be fine but future upgrades may need more, but then again maybe not. ;)
    Topower and Super Flower PSU's are made by the same chinese company as Enermax PSU's are but at a reduced price so keep an eye out for them as well plus Antec PSU's are good too. :thumb:

    350W will be fine. I'm running an Athlon XP 1800+, GF3, 4 IDE drives and so on off a 250W PSU.. so I think 350W will be plenty. (Note: I don't actually suggest trying to do it off a 250W PSU.. I'm just stupid)

    I agree w/ the dont run it off 250W. 300W is sufficient 350W if you have a GeForce 3 or GeForce 4. Generic PSU's will do the job fine, brand name PSU's are probably a little more efficient but there really isnt a great difference

    I wouldn't say that as I've seen plenty of generic "so called" 300w PSU's that didn't perform. In fact they would have to be the most changed thing I swap out when trouble shootin' someone's PC. Generic cases and their generic PSU's. :(

    "Clean power" and enough of it avoids many problems. Skimp on something else.

    In fact if you want a good stable rig don't skimp on anything. ;)
