Whats up again guys. Most of you are probably sick of my posts but I am buying this comp this month and I just want to make sure it will work nicely. I believe that it will cost around 1800 including shipping. I also want to know what heatsink comes with the Processor is it a thermaltake? Anyways it doesnt really matter it should overclock well. Anyways, here are the specs and stuff.

Case - Kingwin KT-436 Silver With 3 Windows - $165.00
Power Supply - Enermax EG465P-VE(FC)431 Watt - $83.00
Processor - Pentium IV 2.26b 533 FSB - $274.00
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-8IHXP Tehama E - $168.00
Memory - 2 Pieces Kingston PC 800 256 MB Non ECC - $210.00
Hard Drive - Western Digital Special Edition 100 MB - $147.00
Video Card - Leadtek Winfast A250 TD - $263.00
DVD-ROM - LITE-ON LTD-163 16X DVD ROM Drive - $38.00
CD-RW - LITE-ON 40X12X48 CDRW - $70.00
Sound Card - Creative Labs Audigy XGAMER - $84.00
Speakers - Logitech Z-560 4.1 Sound System - $136.00
OS - Windows XP Home ED. - $90.00

All this costs $1728 plus $77 for Shipping.

Well, those are my specs. I am planning to do overclocking, I hope to get up to 2.7 GHZ and I also hope to overclock the Rambus to 1066. I was going to go with Samsung but NewEgg doesnt carry it anymore. With my luck the Kingstons will probably burn up and ruin my mobo. I was going to wait for the ATI 9700 to come out at the end of this or next month but I may just go with the leadtek and overclock it. Any input would be appreciated and any warnings or tips about overclocking this setup would also be nice.

Thanks alot guys.

Looks OK to me.

<font color=blue>At least half of all problems are caused by an insufficient power supply!</font color=blue>

pretty good parts list.
only thing i would change is the ram. i dont think that kingston will get to 1066. see if u can find some real PC1066.


So I fixed my BIG PC problem by pressing the reset button. I'm not a moron am i? :lol:
