That RAM is bloody fast enough.. but if you want faster RAM, then get PC4000 DDR500. yes, order ANY SATAII HDD you want.

HERE is faster RAM:2nd one!
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/GeIL_ONE.html

The First one is also good, but not as fast at higher speeds. This RAM is DDR400, DDR500, and DDR600 alll in ONE chip, aka Geil ONE.

That RAM is pc3200 though. Will that work, if yes can the mobo take 4 x 512mb RAM? Is that processor fantastically fast? Could i buy 2 hd and they'll both fit onto my mother board as well as a zip, floppy and 1 x cdrw and 1 x DVD rw. Could you recommend me a cool looking case that will fit all of that and a PSU. Do i have to buy somthing that connects the power button to the pc motherboard? Then after that i'll upload a word docuemnt containing what i've chosen so far and see if it'll all b copatible
ALSO

I went to this page:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Samsung.html

and scrolled down to the bottom and click the full spec of the hard drive

http://www.samsung.com/Products/Hard...es_SP2504C.htm

It says on feature list:

Feature


125GB Formatted Capacity Per Disk
Serial ATA 3.0Gbps Interface Support
SATA Native Command Queuing Feature set
Device Initiated SATA Power Management
Staggerd Spin-up Support
High Speed Dual Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Based Architecture
ATA S.M.A.R.T. Compliant
ATA Automatic Acoustic Management Feature Set
ATA 48-bit Address Feature Set
ATA Streaming Feature Set
ATA Device Configuration Overlay Feature Set
NoiseGuard™
SilentSeek™

<1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes>

It says only 125GB capicity per disk but the Hard drive is suppost to be 250gb. Or is there 2 disks in it? I need a 250gb hd with SATA 2

Thankyou

That motherboard will handle 2GB easily. Wow, the timings on the Geil is incredible!! I may consider getting that for myself. I'm so use to Corsair XMS's, but that is eye catching. It looks like it's the fastest memory around. Just be careful of the voltage and motherboard timings needed to run it. But Wow...

Yes it will all fit for the 2 hard drives, burner, zip, floppy and so forth. In regards to the power question: when you buy a computer case, the wires are all ready for you to plug onto the motherboard. The motherboard has pins on there (with the help of the motherboard manual), where you can plug those wires onto those pins such as the power button on the front of the case, LED lights for the On/Reset button, hard drive LED, etc.

Some cases come with a power supply and some don't. For you, I recommend you buy a case with a power supply already included for simplicity purposes. Oh, the computer case comes with a power cord for the wall socket. So don't worry about that. Remeber, a lot of these parts comes with cables and everything. As long as buy them retail and not OEM, you will get those cables.

Honestly, I'm not too picky about hard drives. As long as they're at least 7200RPMs and SATA, that's all it matters.

What do you mean. Could the mother board burn out? Do i need anymore fans?

Also Will i just be able to buy a monitor and it will fit (19")?
So it going to be powerful and is it now good to go

Is ervthing plug and play. When everthing is connect do i just turn the pc on and insert Windows Xp 2003 Disc and install? I dont need to do any BIOS stuff do i ?

Thankyou Thankyou i just need a case... How many drive bays do i need of each size. I wanted this case http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Enermax.html (second from bottom) but they sold out! Woudl everything fit in that case?

No you don't need any additional fans for the memory. You tinker with the voltages and timings in the BIOS. But check out the new Geil One or is this old? Even lower timings...

GeIL ONE Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) TCCD chips Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144341

If you're going to buy the monitor that Opeteronix pointed out, you will need a monitor (doesn't matter what size) that supports DVI input from that 7800 video card.
