I appreciate the input everybody (THanks for that site too laxboy) But I don't think I was being specific enough - so here's everything I need.

Case
Motherboard
Power Supply
Hard Drives (I don't really need RAID, I just don't feel what I'm going to be doing with this computer Necessitates it - I'm more worried about overall capacity rather than speed. Considering there's going to be a 30 gig partition for the OS and recording programs - and the rest will mostly be used to store sound files)
Ram (I would prefer an amount like 1gig or higher)
Video card (I'm partial to ATI, but remember I like any input)
Sound Card (Something with a front panel, like noted before)
I don't necessarily NEED a dvd-rw, but it would be nice for backups of large sound files (I do a black metal project with 40 minute+ songs)
As far as CD drives go then - atleast 2 (There's going to be an external CD Copier for those who haven't figured that already.)

and whatever else is necessary. (I'm kind of worthless right now because of the pain pills I"ve been taking due to a recent foot surgery) Anyway, be decisive! Act like you have that much money on a computer and just say what you'd put in it, you guys have your own preferences as far as CPUs and Video card companies go, to be honest, I just want whatever you guys would have. I've decided to be indecisive about these things because it's something that gets people in arguments when all it really is is a matter of personal preference.

Sorry for making this so longwinded, but I hope it will atleast give some input in to what I'd like on it.

I want an LCD monitor, if that makes any difference.

Sorry for not being specific enough, once again I strongly appreciate your input!

I should've mentioned plain case - I hate those Xaser cases that are premodded like that- they're ugly.

K8T800? I was looking at that, actually. There's no CPU mentioned there though - that's a nice set up - that might be the one ;p
