    pt- cant go intel my board is AMD

    anticlutch- not really much of a budget i just want to get this baby running lol

    fafa21- thanks man i cant wait to get it all finished

    guys here is the HDD i will be ordering and the CD/DVD-RW combo i ordered tonight

    HDD (Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148140

    CD/DVD-RW (ASUS Black CD/DVD Burner with LightScribe): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135141

    what kind of memory would you guys suggest???
     
  6. well if you have the board, i'd go for a better proc. the x2 is pretty dated these days, perhaps and opty or fx60:), other than that the case is pretty sweet, i have one myself you should check it out, it's in my sig, i got the same mobo as you as well, gets me 7500 in 3dmark06, which isn't bad.
