I've been reading for a week or so now, and have decided upon these products for combination of needs/price. Does this system look like it will work out fine for a basic home PC, burning some DVD's and playing a few games? I plan to add more memory and hard drives after I get it up and running and come up with more bucks...

ASUS A8N-E socket 939 Nvidia nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD mobo

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1Ghz FSB socket 939

Antec TX1050B server tower with 500W ATX 12V v2.0 case & power

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB (2X512MB) DDR 400 (PC3200)

eVGA 256-P2-N516 Geoforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500JS 250GB 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s

Plextor PX740A/SW-BL x16 DVD burner

Any opinions and suggestions are welcome and much appreciated...

Well, almost a week in between work, sleep, eating, etc... I have read a lot in the past week, but it's hard to catch up 3 years in a week...thanks for your sincere help...

Also, I've been noticing that there are SATA II drives that say they are 3.0Gb/s and some say 300Mb/s? That's not making sense to me...

any explanation on that?

Thanks in advance to anyone that's not trying to be Mr. @#$%in Sarcastic

Yeh all looks good

Sata II, 3Gb/sec, 300MB/s all mean the same thing

Thank you sleepdeprived, I'm going to change over to the WD SE16 WD2500KS instead of the WD2500JS, since the SE16 has 16MB of cache compared to the 8MB on the JS series...
