Ditch the gf2 ti and get a gf3 ti, the price difference is small, but the performance difference is rather large.

Moderate:

Case is good - would prefer to see audio and firewire on front as well, but this is sometimes hard to find.

Motherboard is old tech; would prefer VIA KT333/266a or even SIS 735/745 over this.

RAM, HD, PROC are good.

Video will do. I prefer faster (Gf3/4 non MX or Radeon 8500, but they are more expensive).

Sound is fine.



I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.

If you want an Epox board, I'd recommend their KT266a. $99 at Newegg (last I checked), and it's gotten good reviews. If you're looking for the AMD761 chipset, I'd recommend the updated Gigabyte. They plopped on a new Southbridge with ATA133 and USB2.0.

Gainward. Highest default settings and overclocking program is standard on some models.
