    Go for a GF4 Ti4200 64MB - GREAT performance vs price :thumb:

    I've heard you can OC it to 4600 performance (never needed any more performance on mine!)

    They outperform the 128MB model in almost every catagory. I love mine... good product. Forget Radeon or the MX series(just a weaksauce pumped GF2!::thumbs do )

    $131 (free shipping!) BUY IT HERE

    I would also strongly suggest that you take a long look at an Athalon CPU. I honestly don't know why anyone buys intel chips... why don't you just bend over :snip:

    What HD are you going for? There are some killer hard drives at great prices out there!

    ABIT TH7II INTEL 850 ATX MOTHERBOARD - RETAIL Supports Intel Pentium 4 socket 478 processor. Supports up to Four 184-pin Direct Rambus RIMM modules up to 2GB (PC600/800). Supports 400MHz system bus. NO OnBoard LAN - NO RAID. Model#: TH7II

    This means that the only type of RAMBUS I can put in is PC600/800?

    I see them on newegg.com but most of them have an AMD power supply. I will get the chieftec case without the PSU, and I will buy the psu seperately. Which one is the best bang for the buck? 350 watts...

    It is very often your best bet to get a PSU/Case combo. I just bought a case (that has the indentical case guts as yours - made by the same company) For only 40$ more than the power supply costs ALONE! Shipping included!.

    Look at directron.com, they have alot of very similar cases, with different power supplies....

    Get the Abit TH7II w/ PC800 RAM, and a p4 1.8a. You will still get great performance out of that. Also as a video card, i would get either a GF3 Ti200 or Radeon 7500 but that is because i dont believe spending lots of money on video cards, anyway the human eye is not capable of seeing the difference between 75FPS and 175FPS, which makes any GeForce 4 Ti series card useless to me, thats just a personal opinion

    Bang for buck 350W probably something like Antec solution. The antec solution 350W are pretty decent. If you are looking for a little better then i suggest Antec truepower 330W or 380W.
