1.4ghz Athlon 266FSB (haven't ordered yet)
Asus A7m266 Mobo
IBM Deskter 40GB Hard drive 7200rpm

Looks good. I've heard nothing but good from the Lian-Li cases.

BTW, you might want to think about getting a keyboard with extra buttons. I have the Logitech iTouch cordless, and the shortcut buttons are really nice. I also have the Logitech cordless optical mouse, and I love that.
Just a thought, since you seem to be willing to spend the money.

Oh, the Teac CD-RW is actually pretty close to the same thing as the Plextor. I have the Teac 12x and a good friend has the Plextor 12x, and mine is faster and has more features. Just a though. I got mine for $133 OEM.

I don't understand what is up with everyone
going after the Lian Li cases.. too expensive
and and it doesn't look all that pretty either.

Damnit.. just get a generic case and mod the
hell out of it..

Intel Components, AMD Components... all made in Taiwan!

Just curious on the Teac vs. Plextor burners. Which of you has the least num of buffer underrun/overruns?

I can't say for sure, but I'd say it's a tie, since there's an even buffer, and both have Burn-Proof.

I've never had one, and he hasn't either. I never had one on my 8/4/32 LG/Goldstar either, though.

And Lian-Li cases are high quality, and drop your temps like a rock. They're also very light.
That's why other companies (Antec, Cooler Master) have come out with aluminum cases.

As for not looking good, I think they look pretty sweet, and you can mod them to your tastes if you want anyway.

The Lian Lis look superb!! But i cant picture it with poxy vanilla burners and a poxy vanilla DVD player and a funny blue coloured Game Theatre.

Yeah, that's the problem, most components aren't black. But you could always spray paint it black.*
