I just put together an intel pentium d machine with an intel 945 psn motherboard, and i did not realise what a pain it is to install the heatsink on the motherboard it actually took a lot more effort than installing the amd athlon x2 heatsink, buyers beware buy an after market heatsink the intel one kinda sucks. Anyways in case anyone wants to know the machine specs are as follows 1 gig of ram 250 gig western digital sata RE antec solution case with an antec smart power 2.0 500 watt power supply, its got to 110 cfm 120 mm case fans and a generic dvd burner, im still waiting to get the video card i have not made up my mind on what to get. I am going to be using the machine to run linux xp 32 bit and and w/e else i can get my hands on.
