Prescott dissipates a lot of heat.Wait till it gets a new socket(socket915) if U really want a Prescott. Else go for AMD 64 FX.

Do Zalman do a PSU with a wattage of more than 400? I think a 400w one would suffice but I would be interested in comparing the price.

Thanks

Here is the final list for my components, which I will be ordering in approximately two weeks time. Please no comments about INTEL and AMD; I have made my decision and am going with INTEL. I am having concerns that my machine may not be cool enough though. The case I am thinking of getting has one intake fan, 80mm and one exhaust fan, 80mm. Both of the fans will be Zalman. My CPU cooler and heatsink is also manufactured by Zalman.

Will my system be cool enough? My system specs will be as follows:

Intel Pentium 4 "Northwood" 3.0GHz (800FSB) with HT Technology

Abit IC7-G MAX2 Advance "Canterwood" (Socket 478) Motherboard

Corsair 1GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x512MB) CAS2

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB SATA 8MB Cache

Connect3D ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB DDR TV-Out/DVI

Zalman ZM400B-APS 400W PSU

Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler - 92mm fan

2 x Zalman ZMF1 80mm Silent Case fan - 3 pin

Sony CRX320E 52x32x52x16 CDRW/DVD Combi Drive (Silver)

OcUK Value Floppy Drive - Silver

Creative Desktop 6000

CoolerMaster Centurion - Case

Would I need a fan for my graphics card aswell?

Thanks,

Retro.

If Radeon 9800XT or X800 would be better

I'm sticking with my current graphics card. I'm on a tight budget and I'm not going to be using it for a lot of gaming, mainly work, editing etc.

I would like to know whether my system will be cool enough. I do not want suggestions on what I should or shouldn't get unless it is temperature related, thanks.

Retro.

The performance of 2.8 Northwood is almost equivalent to that of 3.0 and the price difference does not justify it.
Better go for 2.8.
If U r not satisfied u can always overclock
