Lol, you cant fold on nvidia cards. Im selling my 7300gt on ebay, and getting that x1950pro, which is a way faster card. Thats the purpose of the 1950, to fold using the gpu client.

This the case i was looking at:
Ultra Silver MicroFly Aluminum Micro ATX Tower Case with Clear Sides, Front USB, FireWire and Audio Ports MFCLRSL at TigerDirect.com

And I found a guy selling one of these locally for $85, used for less than 30 days
Newegg.com - GECUBE HV195PG3-D3(RoHS) Radeon X1950PRO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

Whats a decent power supply for cheap i can get to run this machine?
do Athlon XP's use PCI-e? because I'm pretty sure all Socket A are AGP...
