I guess if you're on a budget it can make an OK card, but the real sound cards start at the audigy2 zs.

only get a 3700+ if your not overclocking and its cheaper it just get a 146 or 144 and just overclock cuse if you dont get your CPU from newegg( you cant get the 144 or 146 from newegg)

check this out:
opteron 146

opteron 144

but if you get the 148 which is dumb cause for about 50$ less you can get a 144 or 146 and oc it

Here's what I'm going to do:
eVGA Geforce 7800GT $314.00

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ $282.00 (I want to go with an Athlon 64)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 120GB $85.50

ASUS A8N5X ATX AMD Motherboard $95.99

Rosewill RP500W Power Supply $59.99

GeIL Value 2GV (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDRAM $182.44

Antec Solution SLK3000-B Black Computer Case $49.99

Total: $1,069.91

Ok, so I lied, I do have $1,100....
I'm pretty sure all I need now is a DVD/CD drive... Do I need 2 for that case? Also, do I need a floppy drive, whats it there for anyway?
