I added roughly all the costs up and it came to about 700 for this years prices, so would I be right to assume about 450 for in a years time?

By the way the guy who said Socket A was a dead socket, the XP-M processors are still very popular in custom HTPC's as they are excellent underclockers as well as overclockers so they are practically silent.

I started off with a 1200Mhz AMD Athlon Thunderbird CPU more than 2 years ago. And it was a great set up for about 3 months. It just didn't have the speed and cache sizes to cope with what I was doing. So I had to upgrade.

You will appreciate the extra work the newer components can do.

The thing is that by that time you may be able to get a faster setup for the same or close price to the build above. It's one of the things you look at when you're deciding when to buy parts.

My cash reserves are quite limited as I am a student (not at university, doing the two optional 16 -18 years in school in Britain, but we get pretty much the same stuff).
To me the build looks good as it will be fast, but not too expensive, the only thing I may change is to that new Phemon II, the 955 as thats 250 now, but so was the procesor I am thinking about getting now, so it will proberly be cheaper next year.
