          The only "NO" i put is for the video card. ATI are great for 2D and for DVD playback. but for games forget it, buy a Geforce 2 or 3 instead. For the rest of the components, all great.

            Yah, I figured that card was going to get some flak, I bought it a couple years ago for my existing system and didnt really want to fork out another $150 on a new one... But I guess I might as well do it right.

            Thanks

              Are you planning on overclocking? If so, you might have a hard time keeping the case quiet. If not, then dont get PC150 RAM.

                Yes, I was going to overclock it... What difference will that make noise wise?

                  Overclock = More heat = More fans = More noise
