Yeah I'm pretty much decided on the MSI board. Warriotscot, its interesting that you recommend the Venice, everyone else i have talked to always recommends the Winchester. I don't even know what the difference is myself. Here is the latest build a couple changes were made. Let me know what you think.
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester Integrated into Chip FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - Retail
Thermaltake SViking VA4000BWS Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retailhttp://www.newegg.co...N82E16811133142
CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
Someone recommended this on another forum because its XMS. What so great about XMS that it makes it cost so much more money?

Soxrok, I'm not a huge gamer but thats mainly because most of the good games that have come out in the past four years my current comp hasn't been able to run WELL. It can run them, but they are sometimes bearable and sometimes not. Rome: Total War for example is a game i bought when it was released but i've never really gotten into it because playing it is torture. Hopefully with this new comp I'll be able to get into HL2, CS, CS:S. be ready for Age of Empires III and a few other games that will be coming out. I just want to be ready for another 4 years...
