    All I need to buy is the case, mobo, HDD, and optical drive. I want to try something different on it so I am going to put Windows Vista 64 bit on it for the hell of it. Specs are here...

    3000+ AMD64 S939
    1GB DDR 3200
    6600GT

    I am going to buy this box....

    Anyone hear anything about these?

    tbh, the cpu and gfx card is fine. Not sure what mobo or ram brand you have... that could matter... But that case is junk.

    the artic silver is worthless. don't bother.

    that motherboard is SHIT CRAP HORRIBLE. Don't do it. Get an Intel. It's worth the price.

    For a few bucks more you can get a 500GB Seagate.

    He just wants an extra PC. He doesn't want to spend a lot of money. How much more is an Intel?

    You can find an Asus for around $60 that would be a much better option than that biostar.

    I am getting the arctic silver because on the CPU chip I am going to use the pad that was on the heatsink broke off onto the chip itself.

    i bought that, i hope that outpost doesn't backorder it like they have done in the past...then i have to cancel my order because i won't be able to send in the rebate in time


    oh and ditch that liteon dvd burner and get an NEC...your ears will notice the difference and the NEC will last longer than 1 year
