Ok thanks all. I'll check anitec, maybe order a couple things from there. I'll also be considering going higher in price, make sure it lasts a couple years . Btw for PSU generic 350w ok? I mean I don't run big programs, mostly games like wow, CS:S not a lot of fans. I have no idea how to figure out what PSU is good.

I think I'll change the case, will a 450 psu generic do? And for the vid card I'll look into it. I might upgrade processor also since I just found some extra funds Since I wont be getting a flatscreen right away I'll use one of my monitors home.

I think that u have a problem with ur vid card. The mobo supports PCI-E, and I've seen only 1 mobo that supports both AGP and PCI-E.
The vid card is AGP so it will not work. U need a vid card with PCI-E.

Only thing different would be the color of the case from blue to silver but still the same make and model.


My system will include a CDRW Burner instead of the regular CD ROM

A 256MB PCI-E XFX Geforce Card instead of the Old Sapphire 128MB AGP

The motherboard would be a an ASUS K8N4-E DELUXE nVIDIA nFORCE4 SLI CHIPSET Socket 754

With the AMD Sempron 3400+ Socket 754 CPU

+ Il preinstall Windows XP pro, Office XP Pro, Publisher XP, Mcafee Internet Secuirty Center, Nero Burning Rom, Antivirus, and many other other software for free.


For a total of 840.00 CAN Shipping Included

Is anyone else getting annoyed by him advertising his site all the time?
