Post making my final decision tomorrow on parts and buying them.

Buying the 4 parts that I need for my 9th Build should I change anything before I get these parts tomorrow afternoon ?

The Only thing I'm worried about is the MSI mobo's track record I really don't think I can go through another DOA mobo even if its not from ebay or pricewatch.com
I'm stickin with the celeron D 347 for now.

i highly do not recommend VIA based chipsets, i know this is coming from me, but Intel, ATI, and Nvidia based chipsets dominate the mobo industry, i've never heard of sunbeam PSU's looks cheapo.....

sunbeam actually is a decent low cost power supply producer - at least it used to be. i can't imagine the quality dropping much over time.

Lightbulb Re: making my final decision tomorrow on parts and buying them.

Ok vernong I'm taking your advice and going with this mobo:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-8I865GME-775-RH-AS LGA 775 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Also I need a better computer then I have right now sure my P3 751 got me through whatever I needed it to do in the past 2 or 3 years but, the blasted thing is holding me back from doing more.

I can't sit here for another month with this pc as it just seem's to get slower and slower every few months, so really I need to build one now while I have chance and money.

why do people pick this form factor when they are using a full size case?


EDIT: that board you picked out it DDR 184 pin. You have DDR2 on your list.
