heya Thoid;

If it were me i would build the following

1) Case: ThermalTake Xaser
2) PSU: Fortron 500w
3) Mobo: i875 chipset board - Asus - Gigabyte
4) CPU: Intel 3.2Ghz P4800
5) Ram: 1GB pc3500 Corsair-LL
6) Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce FX 5900 Ultra
7) Hard Drive: 2x60GB Western Digital 10,000RPM SATA - Raid-0 config
8) OS: XP Pro

These are gravy choices.

6) Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce FX 5900 Ultra > Change that to a Readon 9800 Pro. (Cheaper and IMO better)

If he's worried only about performance, not cost, stick with the 5900 Ultra. It outperforms the 9800 Pro, even if it's not as great as Nvidia would like us to believe.

Check out the Doom3 benchmarks. The Ultra rapes.

i´d recommend exactly what XeeNRecoiL said...

Are the FX5900 available? And I never heard about WD 60GB 10000rpm SATA HD (aren´t they only 36gb)

The fastest boards out right now are the Abit IS7/IS7-G and Asus P4P800/P4P800-Deluxe.

The Abit IS7 and IS7-G are the fastest boards, and Abit has excellent warranty service. Asus is neck and neck with Abit on the P4P800 and P4P800-Deluxe. Both use the i865PE chipsets.

Get a Radeon9800 Pro. Visit the graphics section if you really want more opinions, but frankly the cards from Nvidia are questionable since nobody can really be sure what they'll perform like in a real game.

Doom III benchmarks are beta, Nvidia cheated on the 3dMark2003 scores, and it's quite possible that they have cheated on other benchmarks as well.

Yeah, Corsair decided not to release the PC3500 low-latency modules. I would go with two Corsair XMS 512MB PC3500 (non-low-latency) memory modules myself.

How much is a 60GB Western Digital 10,000RPM SATA? And how much would an 80GB cost as well?

maybe it's better if you chose having only 1 dimm module, i'm not quite sure, but i've heard somewhere that it's somewhat slightly stable than having two modules.
