Yep... still need help planning that computer. It seems that I can't pick very good choices when it comes to certain parts, so here's what I've chosen so far:


VIEWSONIC G90MB 19" SHORT DEPTH with 2-SPEAKER MONITOR
ATI Radeon 8500 64MB DDR DVI & TV Output: 160+
Kingmax 256MB PC2700 DDR333 DDR SDRAM DIMM 5ns CL2.5 CAS 2.5: 87+ (x2)
MAXTOR 40GB 7200RPM
AOPEN CD-952E 52x CDROM
Floppy Drive (Borrowed from an old PC)
Creative 4400 4.1 Speakers
Microsoft XP Pro Corporate
Microsoft Intellimouse Optical
Aceex V.92 Full Duplex FaxModem PCI Modem 56000bps

And what I need is:

Case
Cooling
Sound
CPU
MOBO


Here's my criteria, in this order:
3D-Gaming
Overclocking
Performance

If you can help that would be great. If you think I should change something, tell me. Thanks.

Wait for T-bred, wait for the KT400 boards, or if you can't wait, get an XP1800 and an Epox 8KHA+ and a Lian-Li PC75 and a Soundblaster Audigy and for sure the new AX-7 or an MCX462!

have to agree with nikhsub1, get the epox 8kha+, get a XP 1800 or higher( i like my 2000:D0. Get the audigy if you can afford it- if not get a game theater(love that too). As far as case goes i would go with a Chenming 601AE, it's got plenty of room.
As far cooling goes do you want to go the water route or air?
And question, only a reg cd drive, why not at least a RW or dvd drive?
