for an additional 40% more you can get 100% more drive space and performance will be better also. 74 gig Raptor $175

I agree, get the 74gb raptor.
Also, get a better name psu. A $36 500watt psu is bad news.
With that system I'd go for at least a Fortron Source 500+watt or a Antec True550 psu. Make sure you get the EPS12v or ATX 2.0 versions of the psus, you will need the 24pin power connector.

yeah i think I will get the 74 gig raptor and beef up my PSU. I think I am going to ditch the DDR2 ram and get normal DDR.

I believe that motherboard requires DDR2. DDR and DDR2 have slightly different sockets.

Get the cheapest floppy drive possible if you really need one. I'm not familiar with that LCD so I hope you did a bit of research and it meets your needs.

I can't quite figure out why you want the good system and then put a Sempron chip in it. It's like getting a Mustang with a 4 cylinder engine.

And, I wouldn't buy another MSI product if you paid me to. I bought a CD-RW drive from them about a year ago. Within 6 months, it was classified as 'obsolete' and they would offer NO support nor drivers. Screw that! I went out and got a Lite-On. Even they offer better service.

That looks pretty good to me :) 
That PSU should be fine for your current setup. I'm not sure if it would work so hot if you did sli in the future though. If that is something much to far on the horizon to worry about dont bother. I really like the front wattage readout on that psu, lol. It will let you know how much of the power bill is yours :)

That board is not realy meant to support SLI, but I have no real use for that anyways since I am not even gaming.

The wattage meter on that PSU is garbage I hear, anyways, I pay all the bills myself, so I will know how much that thing will use up.

Sempron chip? Where?

I never saw the Sempron chip suggested either... but what do I know?
Looks like he went from good to better!
