    Socket 754 is dead.
    AGP is dead.
    DDR1 is dead.
    That Maxtor hard drive will die on you real soon.

    If you can, I'd avoid the socket 754 motherboard and just go AM2 if you want AMD. Also, try to get a dual core processor (I didn't see one listed).

    You'll also want to pick up a PCI-Express video card if you go with AM2.

    I've heard bad things about Maxtor hard drives, and I use Seagate, WD, or Hitachi. Something to consider.

    You might want a DVD or CD burner for small backups. I've had good experiences with Pioneer.
