whats your budget?

any way...

your psu is here, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103932

reliable, cheap and second Evreything is compatible and building a computer isnt hard at all...just be patient and if somthings not pluging in or installing right, step back and go to something else....and lol xp is easy just pop it in and install when you turn it on.....

i suggest youll change the graphic card to 7600gt its better and costs just a little bit more http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130283 see this comparison http://www.beyond3d.com/previews/nvidia/g73/ , the psu is very good but if you want a psu with 3yr warranty change to antec truepower ii 430w or alternativly get this antec case that comes with an antec smartpower 450w psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129155 , do you really need 2gb of ram? , the X2 4200 costs only 60$ more might wanna get it instead of the 3800 , 80gb isnt much these days i suggest youll get at least 160gb , you might need a floppy drive for sata driver install in winxp setup. maybe nforce4 supports sata compatbility mode so no driver install will be needed but im not sure about that better get one just incase

good choice on the cpu, but if you're gonna be OCing then i suggest an opteron 165. the video card looks good too, it will play everything out there on med high settings. - charlie
