Yes, yes.
I know I already a few weeks ago. But for those not following <A HREF="" target="_new">the story of my life™</A>, let's just say my former hopes were stomped by the ugly boot of cruel reality.

However! As someone probably once said:

Thou shall NOT closeth your heart to protect thyself from sorrow; for thou would also rise a wall that happiness could not tear down.

I decided to follow that advice and let my hopes fly high again. I should have enough money to start ordering things in a few days so here I am again, asking for your assistance.

I have debated long and hard with myself on whether i should get all the components for the computer at once and end up with a "not so satisfactory" computer or to get them little by little and spend more to get an kickass rig. I have recently opted for the latter.

So here are the components I am going to start with:<b>

Monitor 19"
P4 1.8A
Motherboard with Lan/Sound </b>(reliable, good for overclocking, USB 2.0 capable.No need for FireWire/serial ata/raid)<b>
512Mb of RAM
Watercooling Case </b>(I'm really sorry guys, but the PC is in my bedroom, and I leave it 24/24, and I'm sensitive to noise. forgive me..)<b>
PSU 300 or 350 W </b>( I think PSUs are overrated. I won't need a 400W+. I can use the money elsewhere

I won't purchase a graphic card/Hard drive/CDRW/Floppy/ right now. I will use the spares I already have and wait to get something really good later.

When I say watercooling case, It has to include the components needed to cool at least the cpu. Not sure about the PSU cooling...

Those are the rules of the game. If you could include arguments, details and prices, I would be willing to transfer HUGE amounts of money to your favorite bank accounts!!!!!*

* Restrictions Apply.
* What restrictions you ask?
* Well, basically, it's a lie.

Send me $2k and I'll build it for you. The money left over will suffice, no need to transfer any other huge amounts to my favorite bank account!

300-350 for the monitor
150 or less for the mobo
less than 300 for the watercooling case
around 180 max for the memory
The cpu is a no brainer. I already know how much it is and where to get it.

what I need here are names, brands, models, prices, specs. i don't need you to physically build it for me. i just need to know WHAT to order.

and ALWAYS read disclaimers.
