sorry i posted this somewhere else i thought it would work just copying and pasting. I picked out a mobo, is it a good one or not. I still dont know what optical drive to get though. Does this look like a good system.

Thanks

Well on the HD I would get a Segate, they crash less. And I am in a computer class and that Aspire case is small, the front pannel wires are very tight and that temp thing for the processor doent reach to the cpu, we had to put it on the HD.

MoBo link still not looking good, its a search result instead of just one item
I believe you need DDR2 memory if you are going with core 2 duo
