Alright, I've currently already got a thermaltake 500w W0100RU PSU sitting here I got for $20, brand new. Also have an Nvidia 7900GS XFX card which is perfect for my needs. I'm thinking a Gigabyte board would be best I want to go with an Intel Core 2 Duo, no more than 3.0ghz Western Digital 500gb 7200RPM drive (although I have heard that many come DOA) NO idea on a case/cooling, etc Also need a DVDRW Media card reader interface possibly. My concerns are that I need a PCI-E port, DDR2 or DDR3 doesn't make a difference. I plan on purchasing from newegg and I am in the US. The Mobo bios needs to allow me to switch my DVDRW from Sata to AHCI. If someone can recommend me a complete build I would be very, very thankful as I want to pass this current nice AMD system to my inlaws who need it badly. Considering I have a GPU, PSU, and Wireless card already I don't think this should be TOO expensive. One last thing, is soldering required or does the CPU "pop" in per se?
