Well hello everyone heres my most recent system i built since the Amd socket A days. Its an Athlon II X3 440 cpu with 2 gigs of ddr2, a Pny 9800gtx+ ,a 585 watt power supply, a Biostar micro atx board and a cool case i picked up locally for 45 dollars and a 500 gig western digital harddrive 7200rpm. I also added 2 120mm case fans intake and exhaust and 2 cold cathode lights. The whole system was 4 clams. here are some photos hope yall like it.. I was a bit rusty on the build but all in all it worked out.

Because his motherboard was AM2+ which needs DDR2 memory, why OP decided AM2+ instead of AM3 was probably to reduce cost or so.

Thanks because i had the ram from an older p4 system wich was pretty new. And this biostar board was able to use ddr2. Ram is pretty pricy right now its like 50 dollars for 2 gigs so i saved a bit there.
