change the hdd to a - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives it's worth the extra 10$. and i think you can find a 8800gt for about the same price as a 9600gt
why a micro atx board?


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

Sweet you ordered the same case I ordered on Friday.

E7400 2.8ghz? New Wolf Dale!!! Wonder if its just a E7200 with a higher stock frequency.

As far as cooling goes, go with this instead. - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm &#34;Core Contact Freezer&#34; CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

e7400 is just a 7200 with an extra 1 on the multi (10.5x)... looks like it should OC really well with the lower stock FSB which will give you a nice margin for OCing... the Core Contact or the Noctua NH-U12P will be sweet for cooling that thing
