Default computer runs great

Long story short,

I didn't set my CD drive to be the first boot in the sequence of boots.
I had floppy first, cd second and hd third.
When I change it to be CD drive first.
It read my windows Boot CD and workded fine.
Shooting Spree will have to wait. LOL

Awesome!

How good is your video card? Will it allow you to play games? How good do the graphics look? Does it lag at all?

Much better than it was. Originally I had a Dell Dimension4300 which had an older motherboard sportin only 4x agp. It also had the older 133 Ram.
Updating to the new AMD64 Processor and Chaintech S1689 Motherboard it is now alot faster. Less lag on CounterStrike Online game and better graphics with the 8x AGP.
I have purchased all online components with rebates.
I'm a cheapie. but It looks like my first build is a success. thanks to the help I recieved here on the tech forum.
