Check your other thread about the video card + motherboard combo for my post. It isn't saving you $129. It's saving you $39 off buying that motherboard separately. I have some better recommendations for you in the other thread.

I think somebody said this in the other thread already but i would go with a Seagate Barrucuda 250 for $108. Its less then 20$ more then what you currently have and has a 5 year vs a 3 year warranty.

Plus i personally have one and know many other people that do and its a very good drive.

You picked an IDE hard drive. This hard drive is SATA and is extremely fast with a 16mb cache http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701

I second that. That's the one I hope to get with my new build.

Personally... i would'nt get the X2 4200+. The way i see it is.. if u want a X2 cpu either get the X2 3800+ or the X2 4400+.

The X2 3800+ is exactly the same as the 4200+ just 200mhz slower.

I would suggest u spend more and get the 4400+ or just get the 3800+. Its just like buying the 4800+ when you can buy a 4400+ for alot cheaper and overclock it 200mhz... and u have youself a 4800+.

But whatever u choose any X2 processor is great.
