Not so much that, but mATX boards are cheaper.

Suppose I forgot to mention a PSU in teh list.

*is losing sanity*

EDIT: looking at the cart though, it's all very good. The P43 is a great reliable chipset, and everyone loves Asus. The PSU looks sketchy but has an alright overall rating so it can't be all bad. The RAM is a little much, but only costs a little more than it would for 2Gb, so why not. Case looks fine, and of course: The E5200 - a perfect media platform processor.

haha, no biggy. I tried a Micro ATX board once, and it was a POS...then again it did have ATi integrated...so that explains most of it.

Thanks all I think this will be what we purchase. I am going to present the list to the parental units and see if they approve of the cost. (which they should) I am doing my brother a favor here, because he was the one complaining about the current system
