Default Final Build Plans

Ok here it goes this is what i ordered
Motherboard
BIOSTAR NF4UAM2G
CPU
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz
Cooling
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm
Arctic Silver 5
RAM
A-DATA 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800


When i get the money ill buy another gig of ram and a X1950PRO or 8600GTS or whatever my money can buy. ill also pick up a decent PSU

im going to try to write reviews all this stuff if i get time because spring break is over for me
when the parts arrive ill have the stuff abouve and...
Ati Radeon 9250
Logysis Case-51W with the 480 Watt PSU
Logysis 3.5" Thermal Fan Controller
Logysis Dual Red Cold Cathodes
and some Logysis Fans (there a really good brand in my opinion)

Wish i could get overnight shipping luckily newegg has 3 day shipping otherwise i would go nuts. im on my brothers crappy laptop its like 800mhz with 256mb ram...worse then my old desktop

ill post what is supposed to be a build log and since that CPU is supposed to overclock REALLY well(almost as good as a C2D) ill most my success here too.

The thermal probe will go underneath the cpu. Attach it to the motherboard under the cpu with a small piece of thermal tape and snake the tiny wires out between the pins on the cpu and hook it up.

Think of it as an investment. Later on you won't need to upgrade as soon. In turn, saving you more money in the long run. Just my 2 cents.

If you do any type of hardcore gaming, 2 GB of RAM is actually very useful. Runs a lot better.
