looks great to me, but i'd also investigate some of the core 2 duos (if you can get your hands on one.) but with AM2 you can always upgrade with what AMD comes out with to counter conroe, so i guess it's all good.

well, if i were you i would either get the 4400+ or the 3800+ and over clock because the 4200+ has the samechache as the 3800+.

4400+ has l2 cache

Maybe.

Overclocking isnt so much of an issue. The desert heat is not kind to such things. I'll look into it though.

The computer will be inside, and sand free. But it will still be hot.
