PSU could be a better manufactuer. It will be worth spending $20 more on that.

If you want to, the upgrade to AM2 will be in your budget.

As always, you do realise Intels new CPU comes out in July... It will be worth getting that.


Cisco CCNA, Comptia A+, 1/3 through CCNP

getting tired repeating myself XD So i'll just copy/paste my own words from another recent post..

I think you should wait till the beggining of august[two months from now, a bit less] all of the nowdays high-end tech will have a price fall, and all the stuff you will buy nowdays[ even AM2] will not be upgrde-able in the end of this year... the things that will come out by august will be upgradeable till mid 2007 or so[and will be able to hold up good performence for at least 2-3 years or more]

Just my thoughts, do whichever comes up you'r mind though...
