80GB of hard drive space will start to look really crowded really quick. Think about getting at least 120GB. It's not that expensive. I have a 250GB ATA/IDE hard drive and it's awesome. I don't know how SATA prices compare, though.

I've seen 250GB Sata harddrives on newegg for $90, lol. Also agree with this too, get a bigger harddrive.

It should still be ok. But although it's difficult to judge, tbh by the looks of their cases Apevia PSUs will probably be crap. Can't you get a decent Antec case with a decent PSU, or buy a case without a PSU and buy a seperate one (so that you don't have to explain why you had to buy two PSUs).

I've checked new egg and they have gotten some good ratings. Looks like there new on the block which means they havent gathered much reputation, though you will ;) . Looks like Agentlaidlaw has a 600 watt, I'll go with that.

I'm not really the person who will use alot of space, I just have my music and all my games. No pictures or anything else. I lived with a 39 gig harddrive for petes sake : /. Thats exactly what I wanted to hear Archaeon thanks~. And I'm not going for that power supply I'm going for this Apevia 500 watt. It costs more. I really dont want to buy a seperate one on newegg my mom would freak. Plus I already have to buy a VGA to DVI-I Converter already.

* I dont know why but I'm getting the 8800 now, its only like 34 dollars more, just wondering if it will run on same mother board and it will not bottleneck and if 500 watt is still ok with it or I will have to upgrade the PSU.

General Rommel;3541821MOTHERBOARD: (Socket AM2)MSI K9N4 SLI-F nForce 500 SLI Chipset DDR2/800 SATA-II RAID MBoard w/ Dual 16x PCI-Express PROCESSOR: X2 3800+ AMD ( I understand Intel is better but im going with AMD) RAM: 2 Gig Corsair Ram DDR2 PC6400 HARDDRIVE: 80 GIG SATA 7200 RPM POWERSUPPLY: NZXT 500 watt (Rated good/reliable) VIDEO CARD : Nvidia EVGA 7950GT 512mb

So Can someone review that tell me if there will be any bottlenecking,mismatchs, etc. Thanks

Will that X2 CPU work in an AM2 Board? I thought the X2 3800+ was for 939 Boards. Maybe I'm mistaken ;-)
