Thank you Gara you made some of my choices final then. Put you also pointed out my greatest mistake which I fixed.
I'll leave two links of for a processor one is the AMD 64 which can emulate 64 bit and the other is a AMD 64 X2 Duel Core. I'm almost positive you cannot run a 32 bit OS on this correct? But I also hear that once you get a 64 bit OS installed it will be backwards compatible with all 32bit software. I'm having doubts on fully dedicating myself to a Duel Core 64 bit world but whats your review on this?
I'm using a Athlon 64 X2 Processor does this mean for an OS I must use Windows XP x64 and Vista x64 and cannot use the 32 bit counterparts.
I had to reject PCme's recommendation on a Optical Drive. I'm looking for a drive that will burn both CDs and DVDs I'm not looking for blazing fast speeds but I must be able to burn .ISO files from MSDN. That also leaves out a floppy drive it seems I'll be using a SataI/SATAII setup I'd like the floppy drive also to have a side slot for digitial cameria memory sticks like my old one which is making them hard to find.
Is this enough power for the PC?
