hehe my first thought was more RAM... then i thought to check out your case... and i know alot of people swear by lian li cases, but really that case just looks boring, one that im looking at getting that is very kickass is THIS

i mean it is your choice, but for a nicer gaming PC i would suggest a sexy case, and this one is quite the looker...

also on the topic of hs/f, i love the dp102 from aerocool, vey nice looking, and great cooling performance from everyone ive met that has bought it, with the only problem being that once you mount both fans(included) on the heatsink then it is quite massive and heavy...

sorry thats all ican think of at the moment, good luck

The World is my trashcan and i intend to fill it...

Nice setup...but I am now realizing alotta people on here don't know too much about computers.

an AMD 3000+ is Socket 754.That mobo you have is 939 therefor it won't work.My advice is to spend the extra money and get a 939 socket cpu and mobo as they are the future of can get a 3500+ for about 280$.

Get another gig of can pick up some corsair value select 2xchannel for about 150$.

You should try not to get OEM stuff as you have no warrenty and will end up getting screwed over.

For another 70$ you can get a 74Gb Raptor.Twice the size...enough said.

But everything else is nice and have fun after you fix the mistakes.

Antec P160
AMD 3000+ 939 socket
MSI K8V Neo2 Platinum
1 Gb Kingston 3200
BFG 6800gt
WD 74gb raptor

Hey umm im pretty sure he saw the 939 3000+ on
I doubt they would put up false advertising.
