More about : advice elzt June 30, 2003 8:11:48 PM The config looks fine. But why are you getting an 865G mobo when you'll also buy a R9200 vid card? And for HDD, have you considered other brands like Western Digital and Maxtor? ltj311 June 30, 2003 8:53:23 PM Not to mention you really should look into the HDD's with 8mb cache and/or Serial-ATA. -- "<i>I'm seriously you guys.</i>" - Cartman Can't find your answer ?
