Why can't people post component lists like this:

CPU:Opteron 175

MOBO:ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe

MEMORY:CORSAIR XMS 2G Kit 3500LL

VIDEOCARD:eVGA 7800GTX

It just makes life so much easier, instead of clicking on every freakin' link...

Looks nice.

If you don't plan on OCing than dump the Zalman and the AS5, and get 2GB of RAM.
You could also get a DFI lanparty. Then you could have almost the same system as me. I bought mine for $1250 shipped. Its in my sig.

Yeah, I wasn't talking about you. I'm talking about original tread creators...

the amd cpu comes with a heatsink in the box... the zalman heatsink is indeed much better, but its unnecessary if your not overclocking.

drop the 3700+ for 3200+, u do not need the extra clock, use the money to get another gig and go with a antec truepower supply or forton, and if u do not plan on oc then the zalman is not necessary
