power supply fan
(correct me if i'm wrong)
with the sound blaster live - known issue- go into bios and manually configure an irq... i forget which one but it's on the asus site (www.asus.com) and look in motherboard FAQ
If you don't do that you'll have probs
(i have the same system minus 200 MHz, but working on it )
hope this helps

I don't get it, you amd puppies cry about the P4 being too expensive and yet you are contemplating on paying thru the nose for this system.

Sorry, but what known issue with SB Live! I've used them for my A7V as well as KT7-RAID w/o any conflict problem. I thought it has problem with Coppermine but can be corrected by updating driver.

Yeah I have a system very much like this, A7V, 1Ghz Athlon tbird, soundblaster live! value but 1 DIMM of 256megs pc133 cl=2 memory different CD burner, no DVD, smaller monitor, different hds, but whatever. About that whole SB live! deal, I've had no problems with mine. I might have different BIOS revision or something no idea. I got all this for good price, and I payed $100 more for the memory than I would have to now. It costs a hell of a lot less than a p4 and performs just the same if not better in the software I use. I don't even play Q3(I'm a UT and Cstrike devotee) but if I did, why would 30+ fps over an 1.2 athlon in 640x480 software mode make a lick of difference? Who in god's name runs Quake 3 in software mode? Why not spend the price difference between a 1.2 athlon and 1.5 P4 on a kickass graphics card...?
