I'd say that if I were building new, I'd go for a new socket, not LGA 775 and DDR2 (I'd get DDR3 today). banthracis December 9, 2009 7:16:31 PM Read http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic... that post just makes my eyes hurt >.< Can't find your answer ?

It's not cheaper and it's not doing anything for you. nVidia's cards are being destroyed by the new ATI 5xxx series, and are only recommended by hardcore fanboys. Ditch the WD for a Samsung Spinpoint F3. It's cheaper, faster and quieter. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumCyberpower Build - How does it look ?
