    Thinking of putting my current computer to the living room:
    Asus A7M266
    Athlon 1.4
    ATI AIW9000
    Hitachi 60GB
    Seagate 7200.7 120GB
    DVD drive
    Chaintech AV710
    So all I really need is a pretty case.

    That being said, I need a new main computer....silence is the key. And I should keep an AIW in here 'cause I'm so used to it...plus if a 9000 hasn't been a problem, a 9800 should be more than fast enough. The 120GB seagate will probably go in the new comp as well.

    I'm just going through NCIX 'cause it's easy to play around with the shopping cart...I may end up buying stuff locally or even the states with the state of the US dollar right now:

    all 3200 939's are 90nm right?

    remember that installing a 3rd party vga cooler viods your video card warranty!

    Also, I wouldn't recommend the sonata or the ati card.

    The Lian Li 6070 is much nicer than the antec, imho.

    i'm not too worried about that...if it works without the vga cooler fine for a day or two, I don't think it's likely to fuck up later after I add it

    and the 6070 is like 50-60% more and that's without a PS...what makes it 75% better?

    it's quieter. You can put a good power supply in it (the sonata psu isn't very good) you can fit more in it. It features a much higher build quality. The system will run cooler.
