Default My FUTURE PC

This is what I am PLANNING (taking suggestions) on building with the tax refund

Case: Thermaltake Xaser III
Mobo: Asus A7N8X
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2500+ 333FSB
RAM: 512MB
Optical Drive: 8X DVD+RW
HD: 40GB ATA/100 HD 8.9MS 8MB 7200RPM
Floppy: SAMSUNG 1.44MB

Not too worried about sound and video as of yet...I just want to get the thing built and then buy the cards.

What do you guys think?

Perty Cool, what kind of video card are you getting?

I would personally get a bigger Hard drive, but your needs are what's important.

It'd be much easier to build if you had the parts. e-mail me. I'm selling a vid card and a sound card (not to advertise or anything'T BAN ME! *hide*)

yeh, ive got a 40 gig drive now and you can fill it up fairly easily
get either an 80GB or 120GB
for video card, i like the Radeon 9600 Pro's, the 9200 is good but I don't think it would perform well in games like HL2 or Doom3, the 9800 Pro is too expensive
if you don't want to play the high-end games like Doom 3 then stick with the 9200, otherwise get the 9600 Pro
that's a fu(in6 good case you're getting
