Instead of one of those expensive drives, a sata drive is faster than ide and not as expensive.

Bassically it is a case with a Powersupply and a motherboard.. It also has cooling for the cpu ..so you can save and get a oem cpu without the heatsink

sff pc is gonna cost a lot..

Sata drives are excellent for gaiming computers..no need to go withg the raptors or other 10 000rpm stuff...too expensive

MasterJason, how many times do you have to post after another.... Ecko obviously few people posting here understand what your looking for.. Since you will not be gaming on this computer, i suggest a Intel Pentium 4.

I recommend this processor.
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...116-171&DEPA=0

I also recommend Seagate 80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive. Heres the link.
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...148-019&depa=0

Also get 512mb Ram-PC3200. You wont need a link for that.
That case MegaDeth suggested would work fine.

This motherboard will work fine too.
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-492&depa=0

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Codeine, I do not recommend that processor. I suggest an Intel Pentium 4 530 which is on LGA775 and runs at 3.0 GHz. He said he would like to keep it upgradable and all future Pentium/4 processors will be on LGA775. There is no point in purchasing a dead platform; that is like saying you should take AGP over PCIe. Secondly, get an Abit AG8 motherboard which takes DDR memory (not DDR2) and it will decrease install times since the 915P chipset is faster than any 8xx chipset. Other than that, what Codeine suggested will work. Oh, and get yourself some Arctic Silver cause if you don't, then that heatsink will be screaming so loud because of the tight space in that case.
