Default Building PC - Need Advice

Hi,

£133.95


Motherboard
Asus K8VSE Deluxe (Socket 754) Motherboard

£72.02


RAM
Crucial CT6464Z40B 512mb DDR 400MHz PC3200 CL=3 Memory Module

£61.09 x2


Graphics Card
Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 PRO 128 MB DDR 8x AGP DVi & TV-Out

CD-RW/DVD ROM

After looking at some more reviews I have decided not to get the Sunbeam Samurai Gaming Case...
I might get This insted. Would this case big enough?

yes, most atx cases are big enough for most systems, unless you are running some sick hardware

I might change the Mobo to a Asus A8V Rev.2 Deluxe (Socket 939) Motherboard found here
and the CPU to a AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester 90nm (Socket 939).

Anyone else recomend this?
