    Looking to upgrade

    I'm wanting to upgrade my system. These are the components I've picked. What do ya think??

    Motherboard: Soyo P4X400 Dragon Ultra Platinum
    Processor: Pentium 4 2.53GHz Socket 478
    Heatsink: Zalman CNPS7000-ALCu cooler heatsink
    Ram: Corsair CMX256A-3200LLPT 256MB DDR400
    XMS3200 Low Latency SPD Memory w/Platinum
    Heat Spreader
    Video Card: Chaintech Geforce 4 4800se (Already purchased)
    Case: Directron Hydraulic mid-tower
    Power Supply: ThermalTake Silent Purepower W0009 420watt

    Without the video card that I've already purchased, this equals up to around $600. I'm trying to keep the cost range around there.

    If you know of any better components or have any comments, please reply.

    Not bad, but if you're running XP I would get 512MB RAM...

    yeah the fortron are probably better PSU's
    also it may be worth to wait for a springdale/canterwood motherboard

    Psychosylph: I was planning on running 2 256 sticks of ram, forgot to write that down. Thanks for the reply.

    sangapski: Thanks for the heads up on the PSU, I'll check into sparkle/fortron.

    #1 Overclocker: I read about springdale/canterwood motherboards right after I posted. They are like $200 and the 800FBS Processor to go with it is like $500. I would love to have that!! Might wait awhile to upgrade, so the prices will be lower by then.

    I love the Soyo Dragon, the two sticks will definetly be better than just 256 MB of RAM, sounds like a good system!
