Ya dont have to be on the bleeding edge of technology to have a fast computer. Just some words of wisdom. You will pay hundreds for a few frames on the bleeding edge.

Now now, spending money you don't need to is always worth it to out do your friends.

Haha, well, I will have a better comp then him, he is only getting an Athlon 64 +3700 San Diego, a gig of ram, a EVGA GeForce7800GT, and an old 7,200rpm hard drive, mine will be better, not by that much, but it will still be better.

lol. i just bought a AMD 3700 and it is a KILLER processor. the only reason you will notice any difference between the 3700 and the 3800 is that the 3800 is dual core...i would wait out for the dual core prices to go down and for their L2 sizes to go up. i am plently happy with this 3700 and doubt it will need an upgrade for a while.

you should prolly, since you seem to want to go all out on everything, check out the Abit Fatlity mobo (with SLI if you want it incase you're a Nvidia fan).

i have a Abit AN8 Ultra that cost me 10-15 dollars more than that ASUS you're lookin at and this baby came with a surround sound card. (but no mounting screws) good choice none the less.

i have an Aspire 500W power supply and the difference i see between them is your fan is on the bottum, blowing into your case. i'd really commend getting some fans to keep that air moving or find another model that has fans blowing your PSU's heat out of your PC rather than in.

how much will that be running you?
