Looks great, except, I'd get an Athlon XP and reduce the RAM a bit. I doubt you need 768MB RAM.

Ok, im gonna get 512 Crucial DDR. And an athlon xp 1600+. 2 other questions. Is the power supply enough? Or shoul i go with a 431watt? And can the KG7 accept the 1600? Or will i need to do a bios update?

you should really get MSI K7T266 Pro2-RU, it has raid built in and 8 USB ports, and supports the XP.
the PSU is ok, dont think too much about it.
other then that looks great!

will the KG7 still accept the 1600+ with a bios update? i know one of my friends has a KG7 and absolutely loves it. Thats the only reason i wanted to look at one. Plus i know via chipset have problems with creatvie cards. And is the Delta fan really THAT loud?

yea it should support the 1600+ with bios update, but the performance is much better with the MSI, i think ppl are complaining about the fan too much, u can live with it:) 
i keep my box open at all times, got 6 fans in it plus 2 HD's and its fine, not that much of an issue for me.

The kg7's work with the athlon xp's after a bios update, and in case you are planning to ever use up all the RAM slots, you need registered RAM

Yeah, that's great, you don't need a 431W PSU.

The Delta fan really is THAT loud. Go to www.sidewindercomputers.com and click on "Hear Our Fans". They have a good selection of fans to listen from along with their airflow.

I would personally say that a Delta fan isn't so much loud as it is high pitched. It's the pitch of the fan that makes it annoying.

I agree. I still find my delta annoying. I will never get used to it. One of these days I will do something about it.

I've had my Delta fan for 3 months now, I think I can say I've gotten used to it.

I ditched my delta for a 80>60mm converter and an 80mm sunon, now I can sleep.

All mine are in teh living room. I haven't run the ethernet to the bedrooms yet :/ 

Once I do I may use one in the bedrooms...probably one of the notebooks, since they are smaller footprint and I can use them in bed...

Not that any of this info really matters to anyone...but me...

Mark-

When all else fails, throw your computer out the window!!!

I have ethernet going to my bedroom, my origional plan was to use my 135 gig raid array as a media server to my house, but the delta made keeping it on 24/7 unbearable.
