  1. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who answered my questions over the past few weeks. I've never built a PC before but was getting picky enough that I couldn't get what I wanted off the shelf. With a little support from you guys, I built my beastie.


    Case: Lian-li PC-65
    Mobo: Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
    PS: Antec TruePower 2.0 550W
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3500 Venice Chipset
    Memory: 2x512 Corsair Value Select RAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
    Video Card: BFG nVidia 6800GT 256mb PCI-e x16
    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA 150 160GB 7200rpm
    Optical Drive: NEC IDE DVD Burner
    Floppy Drive: Samsung 1.44 3.5" internal FDD
    Card Reader: Sabrant 42-1 internal card reader

    Total Cost from NewEgg: $1,240.00
    Seeing it boot up for the first time: Priceless

    My wife won't allow me to call it "Sexy Beast", so I've settled for Mr. Kingsley.

    Thanks everyone for keeping me pointed in the right direction during this. You're advice was greatly appreciated.
