Need advise on new Athlon 64 rig

MSI K8N Neo Platinum (Motherboard)
Athlon 64 2800+ Newcastle Socket 754 (Retail)
1-Corsair VS512MB400 512 MB DDR 400 Cas 2.5
ATX Case (Need advise on a case)

ATI Radeon 9600xt (This is my current video card which I plan to continue
using in the new system.)

I'm considering these parts to upgrade my current Athlon 1600+ system.
Shooter Games are probably the most demanding thing I use my computer for.
I'm trying to keep the cost below $400. Am I doing a good thing or am I
making a big mistake by not spending more and getting a socket 939 setup?

Is this something that would overclock well? if so what type of results
might I expect to see? Is the ram I'm considering of good enough quality
for overclocking?

Is it okay to have only one stick of ram? I sometimes see 512k advertised
as "two" 256k sticks.

I also need some advise on a good case with a power supply. My current case
along with the other left over parts will be used to upgrade my Daughter's
computer. All I ask for is a Plain Jane case that is easy to take apart for
upgrades and maintenance and provides enough power and ventilation for the
new
Athlon 64. I don't need it to look like an alien space ship with lights and
bright colors.

I'm considering zipzoomfly.com to order everything from. They seem to have
good prices and a good reputation. Is that a wise choice?

It seems kind of scary going from the XP 1600+ which is 1400 MHz to a Athlon
64 2800+ which is only 1800MHz. On the surface it doesn't seem like much of
a jump. I know that the benchmarks show a much bigger difference.

Well I hope you guys can help me out. I'm sorry for asking so many
questions but this all seems so overwhelming at times. Thanks for all of
your help.

Learn how to spell advice and then maybe somebody will offer some to you.

Sorry, I've been so advised. Thanks for your advice. Too bad spell

Socket 754 is OK, but you may not find CPUs in a couple of years
if you are thinking about an upgrade then. Also socket 754 CPUs do
not support dual channel memory (see below).

You only need 2 sticks for dual channel mode, which socket
754 doesn't support. Dual channel memory is a performance
boost for memory intensive stuff, not sure about gaming
though.

I have an Antec Sonata and would reccomend it to anybody. It
comes with a decent power supply, and is a low noise design
that works reasonably well for the price.

Why not get a 3000+, it costs $20 extra for a full 2GHz.

I've always had good experiences with them and with newegg.

As for your hardware choices, I pretty much agree with John.

Go with socket 939 if you can. It does costs more now but you will be
able to uppgrade later on, socket754 CPU are getting phased out slowly
and 939 is what amd will use thru 2005 anyway.

Not everyone will check their posts as if they were turning them in to a
professor. Reading usenet involves a bit of mental insight into what posts
with errors are supposed to mean. I don't think you'll be able to change it!

Falcon Freak, aptly named, and a trolling discontent overflowing with
the central conceit and corrosively constructed arrogance that makes
him devoted to the proposition that he and only he is correct.

Character building first requires a character to build, Falcon Freak,
bereft of the crutch of humanity, will walk hand in hand with himself
through the portals of the USENET - alone - and hopelessly floundering
because he and only he has the tools of " good English "

This kind of grotesquery, this bucolic supremacism, this vernacular
tyranny, this self evidently sense of witless hyperboly is ' maladie
de fin de siecle ', but Falcon Freak will of course be the only
affiliate member of the human race - not to see it.

You can preach all you want, do it as forcefully and as
arrogantly as you will. Those empowered with free will
will back their arses up into your face and leave you
looking like a turd with ears.

Corrosively constructed? Alliteration is fine when it makes sense. This
doesn't.

What is "the crutch of humanity"? Humanity is a crutch or the crutch of
humanity is some other thing?

I think you mean hyperbole (not to be confused with Hyper Bowling 4000).

I think you are trying to say that Falcon Freak is behaving like an ass
(which he is), but apparently you've accidentally been set to maximum
verbosity. The message kind of got lost in the pretentiousness.

Good on yer yanquidawg, get free of the restriction the whole big
round world will still know what you were trying to communicate !

Use any word, vernacular or otherwise to communicate it's nice to
learn about other peoples language.

XYZ,

You deserve a medal for showing the restraint you did in replying to that
inane post.

Well done.

I figured he was only having a little fun with my dumb mistake. I feel like
an idiot every time I see what I typed in the subject line of this post. If
I had lashed out, this post would have been in flames and there would be no
room for answers to my question. Falcon's okay, we made peace and life goes
on.
