How much faster is Socket B estimated to run? If it's not that much, then I think I'll stick with the Proc/MoBo I have listed right now.

Otherwise, I'll get the processor for my birthday, move the mobo to christmas, and ask my parents for the monitor. I'm sure my older brother or older older brother will get the mobo for me if it's not over $100 (that's my plan anyways.) I *really* wanted to get this running by June '08 though. T.T I'll be in 10th grade by the time this is done. *cry*

I'mma find out just how many things I can get this year. If I can squeeze $500 out of my birthday, I might have it done by *this* christmas.

EDIT: If I can, should it look like this?

I found a deal on Xoxide.com for the case. I can get this PSU, with the case, and Dual Cold Cathode (which I wanted anyways =P) for $100. The next time I upgrade, I plan on getting that HIPER, but until then, will this do?

Also, The Motherboard is $83, and the Processor is $188. I found a deal on DDR2 800 1GB RAM (At $65), and the Video Card is going to be $180, so I'll edit the list right here:
