Okay, here is my updated PC
Mobo: Either the DFI Lanparty nf4 SLI-DR socket:939 ATX AMD, or the DFI Lanparty nf4 Ultra-D socket:939 ATX AMD.
Leaning toward Ultra-D, but not sure.
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice socket:939.
This was suggested since it is nearly as good, and cheaper, than the 3700. "There will only be a little performance drop." Advice?
Memory: Corsiar XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model TWINX1024-3200C2PT.
Okay, I'm wondering, is unbuffered or whatever important? Also, DDR2? The video card is DDR3, and this is DDR. Whats the jig?
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 160 GB 7200 RPM ATA100
Would buying 2 Barracuda 80 GB's be cheaper than the stand alone 160 GB? Any advantages/disadvantages to this? How much TOTAL GB's would you recommend for this PC. To help fuel your answers, I usually have like, Photoshop cs, I will have some of the newer games, and I will have around 800-1000 songs on my pc, with the downloading software; Limewire and such.
Video Card: GeForce 6800 GT PCI-Express 256MB DDR3
This still good to go? Anything cheaper that will look nearly identical and still run as good? Okay, this is DDR3, but the memory is DDR?
PSU & Case: I need a good hookup here. I don't care what kind of PSU as long as it doesn't take away from the performance of the mobo, cpu, video card, etc... Hook me up, maybe one that coincides with a case too?
Drives: Cheap suggestions? I don't really care about dvd burning, but I would like to burn cds, watch dvd's, and would like both opticals to play cd's and run stuff from them.
I know I sound dumb, forgive me?
