  1. Yes, I have just ordered my first build parts, see below.

    XION XION II XON-101 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450W Power Supply - Retail

    SAPPHIRE 100189L Radeon X1900GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 (RoHS) CrossFire Video Card - Retail

    A-DATA Vitesta 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model ELJPE1908K - Retail

    BIOSTAR TFORCE945P Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945P ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6400 - Retail

    My question is this, should this system outperform my Celeron D with 768mb Single Channel memory? (;))

    Total With Shipping: 694.96$

    I have a 200GB IDE Hard Drive thats going in this beast, and a DVD-RW/R/CD-RW/R Drive, Black ;)

    ahh, i wouldn't have gone with a biostar mobo.

    are you going to try using the supply that comes with that xion case? you can save yourself a lot of trouble now and get an antec supply of at least 500 watts. it would definitely outperform said celeron D, or at least until that 450w xion gives out...

    I second zephead, that PSU is probably garbage. Get a good quality one (at least 450W recommended) from any of Antec, Fortron FSP, CoolerMaster, Thermaltake, OCZ or Enermax.
    As for the comparison with the Celeron D, there is no comparison. That system blows any Celeron D system far and away. I have a similar setup, only I have an ASUS mobo, two X1900XTs in Crossfire and a Conroe E6700. U definitely won't be disappointed with it, I guarantee that. The E6400 is a great OC'er and comfortably OC's upto 3GHz without problems. Enjoy! :grinthumb
