Default What do you think?

These are the parts that I have finally settled on for the new computer im building. Are all these parts compatible with each other? Feel free to add any other comments you may have about it.

ASPIRE Turbo Case X-Dreamer Black Mid-Tower Case with 350W Power Supply

Lite-On 12X DVD±RW Drive

Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive

2 Kingston 184 Pin 512MB DDR total of 1024

ASUS "K8V SE Deluxe" K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU

AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 512KB L2 Cache 64-bit Processor

CONNECT3D ATI RADEON 9800PRO Video Card, 128MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP

And the final total is......$786

So......What do you think?

So are you saying wait and get the socket 939 or get the 745 at a cheaper price?

yeah, its your choice though. You wont be able to upgrade 754 much unless with a sempron. The 939 will upgrade into the distant future. Either way wait till the 939 3000+ and 3200+ hits shelves.

And if you do wait you might as well wait just a bit longer cuz 4000+ and fx 55 comes out right after that.

All really depends on your Budget and how long you want to wait? I don't know the prices - but you can be sure they won't be cheap.

okay you can now go ahead and buy parts. Make sure you get a socket 939 motherboard.

The 939 3000+ now can be bought at NewEgg. You had better hurry you never know how much they have in stock.
