Cheers Steameh :rock:

Great choices. I have same MB, Proc and RAM with the ATI 9800 PRO, you are going to love it! As for the MX700, I prefer the MX500, I hate wireless crap. Make sure you run the benchmark on my post a few down, after you build your new rig. Use artic silver paste for the heatsink, stay away from that stock sticky pad. good luck

how much $$$$ did you spend? i see that you are custom building which is much cheaper than buying it from a company. and you have to be 18 in england to drive right? :)
I have pretty much same setup as him, and spent a total of $1700, which includes a 19 inch Viewsonic monitor at $269.00

Only 333 fsb? Id go for the 800 fsb but thats just me. All you need now is a T1 or T3 and you can run your own server. I think ill have to order an alienware computer now.

I am old, and I work for a large financial firm. Well, old meaning early 30's :)
My next computer will be the P4 with the 800 FSB to network with this one for head to head games.
sweet putas there!
you have to be 17 to drive in the UK. but it was delivered anyways! case should n arriving 2day WOOP! What operating system do you recommend? Win98 or WinXP????Ill run both 3dmark 01 and 3dmark 03. The cost was 1200 english didleys! Next "project" is a niiiice 21" monitor and some kick ass surround sound speakers :D
VonMeyer, isnt 800fsp for p4's only. Athlons go up to 400fsb but im not paying 200 quid extra for 67fsb increase and about 200 mhz cpu increase.
Ill wait till there chucking new ones out then get the one below the newest. LOADS cheaper and very little performance increase. I was very tempted with the 9800 Pro but again an extra 100 quid.
I just wanting to TOTALLY scrap my old computer and get a brande spanker and then i can upgrade individual parts as and when i need to or when i just feel like blowing some money! :D
As for now this new computer should RAWK!!!
Ill keep you posted when its 2gether :eek: and my 3d mark scores :D
