I read the reviews on how tough it is to setup a DFI and i didnt think it was hard at all. Just read up on it before you start building. I know some links to good guides to building with DFIs if you need them. I would stick with the DFI.

I think the Athlon 4000+ is a little too expensive but how much do you think the 512kb of L2 Cache will affect preformance compared to the 1Mb on the 3700?

Also: Should i get Registered or Unbuffered RAM? I've heard it is mainly for lots of ram (Servers), as of now i'm only planning to get 512Mb (later i'll upgrade top a Gb) so do i need it?

Well here's what i have so far:

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939

Graphics Card: eVGA 256-P2-N516 Geforce 7800GT 256MB

Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

RAM: Patriot Signature Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered


Also, I have a 200W PSU From a Compaq Deskpro EN. Do you think i need to buy a new PSU (if so, suggestions(voltage, Brand))? I really don't want to spend any more money on this but if i have to.

You will definatly need a new power supply.
It is recommended that for the 7800GT you have an 400W PSU or better.

I would recommend these:

OCZ ModStream OCZ45012U 450W Power Supply - Retail

Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 550W Power Supply - Retail

Hope that helps.
