I will be building a pc finally after wanting to for years. Does anyone
have any suggestions or notice any compatibility issues in the following
setup?? I'm not a gamer, however would rather spend a little now, than have
to upgrade 6 months down the line, and also have room for upgrading when the
need arises. I will shop around for the listed hardware for best prices
before i start buying, this is just an idea of what I'm shooting for. Or if
you have any better ideas for close to the same cashola, please advise.

TIA!
Sam

you could get a sempron 3100 or athlon 64 xp 2800+ for less and almost
similar perf to the athlon xp3200 (which the last I checked didn't get too
many good reviews). Also with sempron or athlon 64, you could get a socket
754 motherboard which has more upgrade capabilities than the Socket A
motherboard. Use the money you save to get a better video card

tho.. Please let me know what im client i can reach you at, i'll dance at
your wedding or funeral, or if you're like me there about the same damn

You're specifying DDR2 memory, which I don't think works with that board and
the video card you mention is PCI express, which that board doesn't have,
you need an AGP video card.
As to the DVD burner, nothing wrong with the LaCie, but you could probably
get an NEC 3520 cheaper.

When you pick a card, check if it's PCI-E or AGP and match it to
whichever motherboard you select. In this case, the PCI-E is not
compatible with the motherboard you chose.

Pretty, but Aspire is on the shitlist at [H]ardOCP while Sharky's
recommends them, personally I put more faith in [H] but to each their
own. For the price, you could choose a PSU that no one will dispute:

Thanks a million! That's exactly the stuff I needed to know. I really
appreciate the explanation..couldn't imagine how pissed I'd be with a bunch
of parts that didn't jive with each other. :)

Does this look a little more reasonable? Video Card, HD, and monitor appear
to be good choices to you?

Also, while I have tapped into your infinite wisdom, can you think of
anything else I would need to complete this system? ie. cables, silicon
paste, or any other items not generally thought of?

Thanks again,
