After looking at your list you should change some things.

Get a sata hard drive instead of the pata one.

Atlease get a DVD rom drive or DVD burner, since you won't be able to install your windows vista(DVD) with a cd drive.

Don't even bother getting that sound card, your onboard sound is better than that card.

I know this psu is $20 more then the one you suggested, but it's well worth it. You don't always look at the watts on a psu. The amps are more important. Especially the +12v.

I only got the sound card for the jacks (I have a stereo, keyboard, and mouse.)

I'll switch to a DVD-ROM in that case, I forgot that Vista was on a DVD!

MIDI/Joystick? Not as far as I know.

I'm just getting the sound card for the headphone and microphone jacks.

I'unno what the other two are for.

Oops. The onboard sound has all the jacks I need, doesn't it?

EDIT: Thanks for saving me $19 + tax, brinks!

EDIT2: I must also give credit where credit is due; Thanks M733hz for saving me an unidentified amount of money, plus tax!

It'll be a while before I finish this. My mom won't let me use the money I've saved up (I do most of the menial labor around the house, $12.50 a week= $50/month = $600/year; I have +$1000 in the bank, according to my mom.), so I've gotta convince her, or at least mete out some terms. Chances are, I'll have to get these things over the next year and a half on my birthday and Christmas. By the time I'm done, this PC will be outdated T.T


I expected this to drag on a bit longer, but I'm pretty sure I have a solid list that I can negotiate with my mother about.

Thanks ALOT, everyone!


M733, I PROMISE that when this is done, I'll post here with some pictures. PROMISE.

Haha, Man that's how I had to do mine. Saving checks month after month, It sucks. I just put together a system that's good by my standards but would get blown out of the water by most Core2 rigs now.
