Well all i can say is that, that is a horrible build if you are gaming and whatnot.
SATA II is backwards compatilbe with sata I so your hdd is fine.
SATA has a higher data transfer speed, then ATA and sata uses the smaller cables rather then the big bulky cables of ATA
why are you getting 4*512 as i believe the 2*1GB kit is cheaper.
s478 and AGP are old and you will not be able to upgrade this rig
i would get the X-FI xtreme music for only 20 dollars more.
your processor comes with a heatsink and fan, you can add more case fans if you please but you dont have to
Alright, I'll upgrade to the X-Fi
I'm not sure what AGP is really... and I'm more than willing to get a different motherboard. What is a newer socket for intel processors?
You said this was a horrible build for gaming (which is what I do). Any reasons beyond what you posted?
Edit: On the ram, it said all this 'dual channel kit' crap and I wasn't sure what that was... which is why I didn't get it.
