Hello there! Kinda new to this forum, so thanks for the help if you're reading. Precurssor, I've read quite a few of the posts in the last eight hours, trying to piece together a system that I think is leet enough for things like ffxi online, video editing, web design, etc, but now ENTIRELY out of my price range. Could you let me know if you think I'm missing anything? Here's what i got so far, with links to each item:

ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU: $144.99
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Processor

MEMORY: $285.00
CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory

VIDEO CARD: $134.77
XFX PVT42EUDE3 6800 XTreme 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

HARD DRIVE: $77.00
Open Box: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 250GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Rosewill RP550V2-S-SL 550W Power Supply - Retail

CASE: $65.99
ASPIRE X-DISCOVERY-BK Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window

That's it!! Mostly, I'm concerned about compatibility issues, as well as missing anything. This is my first BYO computer, and I'm hoping it turns out well. Thanks for all your help!!

AM2 is out now, and DDR2 memory is cheaper now than ddr its the main reason AMD switched to DDR2.

Prices are getting cut in half in july for x2s because intel launch the new conroe cpu.
