Looks nice ... I think your better off saving $100 and sacrificing the 200mhz or so and getting the Opteron 165 though. Your choice

Also, why get a black and silver case but a beige optical drive O_o ?

You do have an OSS I assume right?

Also, why not stick with DDR 400? I don't know how memory higher than PC3200 performs on that motherboard.

Yeah, I see your POV, but when you put that much effort and hard-earnt cash into something like that, you would like it to look perfect. Or is it just me?
