Well so far this one. Any other suggestions appretiated. Oh, and also, will the mobo fit in he case? Cause believe it or not, I once bought a mobo and it didnt fit in the case. Well the mobo itself did, but than there was no room to put the cd drive in...

I might be getting 2GB RAM instead of only 1, and if so, is the following ram any good?:

Sounds excellent. I would suggest getting the 2GB instead of ram since most games require atleast a gig. I know that when I play BF2 with 2GB of memory and a 7900GT, I use up 1.55GB of memory so the extra gig will really help out not just for gaming, but for other stuff requiring alot of processing and memory.

Good Luck man

Alright man, thanks. Can the X2 3800 multi-task fairly good? Atleast better than the Pentium D? Cause thats a big thing for me, aside from gaming.

certainly, the X2 3800+ is a kickass dual core cpu. It will handle wht ever you throw at it. I read in an article the X2 3800+ beat some of the more highend Pentium Ds in benchmarks

You are gonna be amazed when it's up and running

I have the model above it on AM2 and I can run 5 virus and spyware programs, surf the web, watch a movie, and listen to music only using 45% CPU!

It's on hell of a cpu

Good luck and hope you enjoy it

Okay, I would HIGHLY suggest you get a case without a powersupply. Do yourself a favor a dont endanger your brand new spankin computer parts.

And about fans. Its always good to have airflow. Which fans to get depends on the case of how many and how big fans can get.
