I now have the money to purchase my new system and will be having a chat to my tech on friday. I have come up with what is below, i allready have a DVD burner,Keyboard,mouse and hard drive.

AMD X2 3800+

ABIT KN8 Ultra

X1800XT 512

BenQ FP71E+ 17" 8ms LCD

Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Expert TV-tuner

1GBB PC3200 (1GB Stick)

Canon Pixma iP5200a bubble jet printer

Now the only problem i am a little concerned with is will a X1800XT,TV Tuner card and sound card all fit in the motherboard together? I have had a look at pictures of the motherboard and there is basically less then 1cm gaps between each PCI and PCI-e socket.. will this be enought for the X1800XTs heatsink to fit with 2 PCI cards?

Image of the motherboard:

I have chosen the X1800XT over the 7800GTX, because i have had great experiances on ATI, and this card is better then a 7800GTX 256mb, the 7800GTX 512 is just out of my price range.

other than that, what do you guys think?

yeah, there's enough room. You'll kill the PCI slot closest to the video slot, but the other two are designed to fit just fine.

i've just decided to make some revisions.

AMD X2 4400+

ABIT KN8 Ultra

X1800XT 512

BenQ FP71E+ 17" 8ms LCD

1GBB PC3200 2x512mb

Canon Pixma iP5200a bubble jet printer

I dropped the TV tuner and changed the CPU to X2 4400+. I also decided on 2x512 instead of 1x1GB
