I've completely tired of out of the box systems that can't be upgraded, etc. so I'm trying my hand at a roll-your-own.

Can someone look this list over and see if they spot any glaring incompatibility problems? I would really appreciate it. I'm ordering everything through Newegg as they seem to have the best overall pricing, but of course you can't talk to anyone at an online store! :tazz:

Anyway any comments would be greatly appreciated!

They only deliver in the US and it depends on what state you live in if you get taxed or not

OMG - I didn't even notice it had the 754 Socket (duh!). Thank you, thank you :tazz:

how can you tell if a video card is not compatible?

Also, thanks for the advice on SATA and optical. Wasn't aware of that.
