Suggestion from an old dude. Dont spend all that money modding your case or over clocking you xp 1800 with an expensive water cooling system. With all the bells and whistles you are putting on you could easily have an AMD 3200 64 1mb cache system. You would even possibly be happier with it than the overclocked, glow in the dark, disco flashing, monster. Save the money for better use.

yea since i got a ok job, and i always wanted a comp with all the what nots, might as well get it once in my life :P am not over clocking my amd 1800, am getting a new xp 2600 barton, i hear they need a good amount of cool. also as time passes and the cpu becomes more out date then i will over clock to like 2.2(its 1.9 stock i belive). with all the parts i think am going to be spending like 1400 bucks
