CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2700+ Thoroughbred 333MHz 256KB L2 Socket A
80$ - Nice and cheap, doesnt have to be upgradeable, and supposibly I can get a nice OC on this thing.
Power Supply: FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN 400W Power Supply
40$ - Recommended solid PSU
Motherboard: ASRock K7S41GX Socket A
45$ - Again cheap, but with rock solid reviews in conjunction with the processor.
Hard Drive: Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB 3.5" IDE Ultra ATA133
55$ - Socket A Mobos dont support SATA from what ive seen, but I wouldnt want to change the mobo for the price, so im sticking to this ATA, unless there is a way to plug in some type of converter?
Memory: CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR
95$ - A gig of 184 pin from a well known company, good price, overclockable.
Graphics Card: XFX Geforce 6600GT
150$ - This is the splurge, this baby will get me running all of the games I want, and im willing to spend it when im pinching other places, still not a bad price by itself really.
Sound Card: Integrated
Free - Sound is fine integrated
Coolant System: MASSCOOL 80mm LED CPU Cooler
10$ - Cheap, decent reviews, very few coolers I could get reasonably. I wanted to led to add a little color since there will be a windowed case, but with the moderate to intensive OC on the processor, I might change it, any ideas?
Chassis: COOLER MASTER Centurion
55$ - Very nice case, the one I will order has a prefab window. The case is pretty hot, very solid looking, good company.
Contolers: Saitek Eclipse illuminated Keyboard + Logitech MediaPlay Cordless Silver/Black Mouse
75$ total - This is my other splurge, I love this keyboard, and I need a nice cordless mouse as my desk will get cluttered easily.
Free - Ones come in the monitor, again, sound isnt number 1 priority.
Free - Duh.
So, any ideas, anything I should change? Ive got the monitor, and just about every product is from newegg so the prices are reliable. The total on this sucker comes out to a nice 605$. Pretty nice id say. Ill grab a few cathodes, and I think im ready to go, but id really like some imput. Thanks
