http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126131

MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard
85.50

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

Microsoft Windows XP HOME Edition With Service Pack 2 $91.95

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16837102151


So Im at a little less than $700 so far not including shipping. I will be ordering evertything at once and Im looking to keep it not too far over $1000.








So all I need now is my case, optical drive(s), PSU, and Monitor. And also any extra fans I need. I really like the Thermaltake Tsunami, but its causing me to near the end of my budget quicker unfortunately. How much room does the case have for extra fans and such? Is the case worth it? Then I will choose my drives and monitor based on the color of my case.

Would this PSU be able to run my system alright?

Thermaltake Silent PurePower TT-420AD(DUAL FAN) ATX 420W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CSA, TUV, CE

What is your budget?

For $80.50 you can get a Western Digital 160gb SATA hard drive FYI

Perfect build

But May I recomend at least a Thermaltake TR2 for that system, it's like the TT-420AD except made for PCI-E
