I have finally started assembling my first computer. I have been waiting for almost a year for money and for the right parts at the right prices. Heres a list of what is in it: Processor: AMD 64 3000+ Venice Core Motherboard: DFI Ultra-D Nforce 4 Memory: 1X512MB Corsair Value Select Vide0: eVGA 6600GT Optical: Plextor 716SA DVD+/-R Combo Optical: Lite-On 16X DVD-ROM Hard Drive: 160GB IDE Seagate Hard Drive: 80GB IDE Maxtor PSU: OCZ Modstream 450 Watt Case: Aerocool JetMaster Jr Speakers: Logitech X-530 Input: Microsoft Standard Wireless Moniter: TBD Hopefully the DFI isnt too picky with my value ram and let me overclock the venice to at least 2.2ghz from 1.8. People have gotten up as high as 2.8ghz with air and better memory. I got some of the stuff for major cheap. The PSU was only $60 after rebate from monarchcomputer.com. Its 450watt, but peaks at 520 plus its a 24pin supply. The video card is only $150 after rebate from the same place. The deal is still going for those interested. The seagate is only $60 after rebate at Circuit City and that is still available. If you're lucky you can get them to price match Wal Mart for additional $20 off. Wasnt too worried if it was SATA even though that was my initial prefence, but saving $40 was too good to pass over. The microsoft keyboard was only $21. At newegg, its 50 plus shipping. Got it off some front store at pricegrabber. Hope it gets here. I got a $10 rebate from microsoft and additional $5 from the store. Yeah yeah, im cheap and im a patient person who waits for rebates. Anyway, here are some temp. picture until everything arrives and i can put it together. Oh yeah and i got a free copy of Far Cry and Half-Life 2 at monarchcomputer.com with a purchase of a cpu and mobo. KICK ASS!
