yes, go with antec because they are a brand name, and because of that, are more trustworthy. and shrap is right, you will regret getting a HDD with a 2mb buffer. if you are looking at gaming, do not skimp on the vid card, but if not, if you are just gonna use the computer for web surfing, and word processing, then get a card that is around 50 to 100 dollars that is at least 64Mb, you wont need 256 ever.

AMD Athlon XP 2500+@ 200x11 - EPoX 8rda3I - Thermaltake 420watt silent PSU - 2x512MB PNY PC3200(DualChannel) - TT HSF - PNY 5900SE, 128MB DDR, 256-bit - - Toshiba SD-R5002: DVD-RW - NEC DVD-RW - 2 Antec 80mm fans - 1 Delta 92mm fan - 1 Antec 120mm fan- 1 TT 120mm fan - Windows XP Pro - WD special edition 80GB 7200 RPM- Seagate 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB cache - Onboard Sound - Onboard Ethernet

i should warn you Allied power supplies are rebadged deer PSU. they are know to be cheap and very unrelaible to the point of damaging your computer hardware. i highly suggest getting the Antec power supply
