    that's a shitty case. r u buying this or building it? i would get the xsuperalien thing. it looks like an alien on steriods man!!! and u should try a better psu, much better psu. try a 500 watt. no, u won't be using 500 watt, but at least you have the 500 watt capacity, so if u get better components, ur comp will suppor them. so far, ok, for 1700, it's a bit expensive. i can prob get all that for 1500 or less

    i think you might need to get DDR400, because the Athlon 64 has a 200mhz FSB

    r u buying this from ibuypower? i have a feeling those specs are copied from the ibuypower receipt thing. r u? cuz ibuypower is really good, they just expect u to be an idiot, so i would make sure u check ur comp after u get it. and watch out, use cpu-z to check if u get dual channel or single channel ram. many times they'll try to fool u and give u single channel. but overall, good prices. for ur monster, i would build it urself

    no its not from ibuypower, its a custom comp company and dont worry about that for now, its as cheap as can be. I too do not like the case and since i get it for free I am gonna just get a new one and you know. As for sound I do not care if it is onboard for now. and yes a faster ram would be good..but im on a budget

    alot of the features will change when i get it.. and it will be cheaper..this was all just slapped togehter in like 2 secs i wasnt really thinking of what to really get.

    http://www.dealsonic.com/poalalatxmid1.html is the case i first wanted becuase a friend showed it to me..i am trying to find something better thoguh

    o and i will be upgrading to a 500w power supply anyway, i already have on on my toher comp which dont work n e more

    Onboard sound takes resources from your mobo, if you want a high performance PC you need to have all apart, its just like onboard GFX card, t sucks and let me tell you YOU COULD NEVER GET THE SOUND QUALITY OF A SOUND BLASTER WITH ONBOARD SOUN NEVER
