I think i'm gonna go
Thermaltake Xaser III (have a 500watt power will it fit this case?)
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (pretty set on this chip)
Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro Mobo
1GB Kingston PC3200 RAM (from my old comp)
ATI Radeon 9800 pro (maybe 6800Gt if prices are good at the time of purchase)
2 X 74GB Raptor 10,000 Hard Drives (how do i set these up ?)
TDK CD Burner (old comp)
DVD Burner (whats a GOOD CHEAP brand)
SoundBlaster Live Value (from my old comp, sound not so important to me)
Oh and i need a new monitor... I want something flat screen, doesnt have to be LCD, but 17"+ and at least the res. of my vid card max res. any recomendations? I would like to keep it under $300.
So are these parts good, compatable? any recommendations on similar parts around the same price that would be better for me. Any thing else you would add ?
I mainly use my comp to game.
Aslong as the PSU is ATX it will fit that case
IMO, you should perhaps drop one of those Raptors and put that money towards the GFX card
Unless you really need all that space this would be a logical solution, because RAID really doesn't have any real world performance advantage over a single drive
There are plenty of nice 19" CRT flat screens for around $200
