here's my opinion...

chassis/case, PSU, hard drive, and optical drive are okay

Try to look at Asus offical website and make some review of their mainboards, check their compatibilities. I would suggest a mainboard that has 4 slots of RAM sockets just to be sure. =)

If you're going to upgrade your RAM into 4GB, I would suggest buy 2 pieces (identical) of 2GB PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) RAM. =)

My personal opinion is to get this kit instead.

http://www.tigerdire...e...&CatId=3508

First thing is i have always had good luck buying from tiger direct. I have not been that lucky buying from Geeks. Second thing is there is already 4 gigs of ram included, it has a better motherboard by Asus, you get a quad core processor instead of a triple core, I also like the case that has USB ports at the top of the case, it makes it much easier to plug into if your using a desk with a tower alcove. I think tiger direct has better quality than most places.

I built a Intel quad core desktop using one of their kits. A XFX motherboard, intel 2.4 quad core, Crucial memory( 2 gigs), 600 watt Ultra PS, a 500 gig WD sata drive, and a samsung DVD-RW, and have had no problems yet. Its about 7 months old now. Someone told me that the ultra PS was too cheaply built but i have not had any issues with it.

Soon i will build me a new computer using another Tiger direct kit simply because i do this every 6 months and i cannot beat their prices or quality without spending a lot more money.

Just my opinion,
SRX660
