So I've picked out everything so far for my new build except for the processor, but I have it narrowed down to my top two choices (too bad I cant afford X2 or it would be in the list too
Shuttle ST20G5 XPC
2 x 512 MB Mushkin PC3200
Sapphire X800GTO 128 MB
120 GB 7200 rpm
NEC 3550A DVD-RW DL
I'm between the Opteron 144 and the Athlon 64 3000+ Venice
I want good performance on new games from the processor and on applications such as Photoshop.
