Maybe im reading this wrong but id switch the 9600 for at least a 9600 pro.Id recommand a 9800 pro.

Your getting 2 sticks of memory so you have duel DDR for 800 FSB.

he isnt getting the celeron is he? I would go for a prescott tho 2.8E I think is best value atm. And I would definately get a better graphics card, either a 9800pro or an FX 5900.
Pentium 4 2.8 with M0 stepping.
Only air cooling tho

You really should wait till Grantsdale is released and see which direction intel is gonna go.As far as prescot most reviewer's say stick with the Northwood C's.Prescot wont be much till it's clock speed's increase.Prescot uses more electiric and is hotter then the Northwood.

What is the Granstdale and what are the specs supposed to be. I dont know i dont want to spend to much more and i would think that the grantsdale is going to be pretty expensive if it is new. But if you could give me link or something that would be cool. What do you perffer amd or intel and why?
