    Okay guys, I've changed my mind AGAIN.

    I'm going to use this ASRock mobo for my cruncher #2/GF's rig, so I need all the cheap/free parts I can get to make it happen, as I want to get it done by the 15th, but I simply don't have much money to spare since it's all going to the ring at the moment. (The 15th is our three year anniversary, and I was planning on popping the question.)

    I already have a keyboard, mouse, a 17" monitor, the mobo, and a Zalman CPU cooler. As long as my birthday present from my brother get's here before then, I'll have my current processor to use for it. I know what case I'm going to get for it, since that'll only be $50 shipped and it's what she wants, I can spare it. (Honestly thou, if anyone has a spare case with a window sitting around, that would be fine. I'd at least pay shipping.)

    What I need right now is...

    DDR2 ram (I'd prefer a 2 X 1 GB kit, but really anything helps.)
    Sata HDD, 80GB or larger. I have a 40GB IDE sitting around I could use...
    Sata optical bay, I have a very crappy and dying IDE white one around, but I'd rather not use it.
    A decent PCI-E graphics card, the mobo does have onboard, but it's not so great.
    Good quality PSU, anything works as long it doesn't die/can power the rig.
    [Ion] and Chicken Patty say thanks.

    Think I'll go with the CM 534 since shipping is only $12.71

    Edit- Case ordered, went with the CM refurb. total was $30.70 after shipping.

    Seems Garyinhere has a Seagate 160GB HDD for the rig, so that's one less thing to worry about. :D

    Edit- So I don't cluster up this thread with updates, here's a link to the build thread.

    i need a AM2 CPU (dual,tri,quad anything 95w or less) Also a 512mb or greater stick of ddr2 any speed but 800 is preferred.
    I just noticed that i have everything i need but a CPU to get another rig running.
    I have a stick of ram but it is only 512mb so it wouldn't make for the best cruncher(but would be possible on a stripped down win XP install)

    just a heads up to anyone that maybe willing to help i am flat broke.(nice way to make me feel like a bum)

    I have a stick of 512MB Hynix DDR2 PC-5300 RAM available.

    CP- I still have the same stuff available to give. I no longer need any of the 1156 mounting gear (got it with my Megashadow), but I am looking for a 775 MB that supports 65nm C2D CPUs for this E2140 I want to build out :D

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    Ive got an Athlon 5000+ wanting a new home. Its a good little oc'er for its age. Ive ran it 2.7GHz 24/7 with 0 problems, might be able to squeeze 2.9 or so out of it on a decent board. Its yours if you would like it. I wouldnt be able to ship it till late next week though. Im right in the middle of a move. :( PM me if your interested. :toast:
    EDIT: Almost forgot... It unlocks to full X4 on the right board. ;)
