    hey guys..
    ok so am going to upgrade my system and i need some recommendation's.
    all below things should be latest models.
    1) a new CPU: whats the last pentium series rolling in market, all i know its PIV 3.X or i should wait for new series of intel prossesor if thier coming out any soon. and probably a new MOBO if my current doesnt support 3Ghz series(Gigabyte GA-8PE800), i bought it about a year ago and a label on the box says "supports PIV 3.X" but i doubt it if it can support 3.4 and above.
    2)a 100Gb above HDD: i heared westren digital is best among HDD's, RPM is importent, the one i got is 7200RPm(Maxtor).
    3)a New speaker System not much expensive as some of u may know am not much in Music's.
    4)A sensitve, wirless(not infrared mybe bluetooth if the device come with it) with rechargable battries

    I suggest a 160 or 200 GB hd. They are the biggest you can get for the best price:size ratio (roughly 2 GB per US dollar).

    I think most people will recommend you Seagate. They have the longest warranty, 5 years, and are the quietest. I love my 160GB one.

    I would go with an athlon 64 setup.

    hmm waranty is not a big deal, who needs a exchange after losing all of thier data
    i had seagate and it was quiet i dont know why some people recommended me maxtor and once i bought 2 of them, the last one(120Gb) makes sounds as hell and i think my poor windows proformence(exploring between folders) is becuz of it. some1 told me these sounds r normall cuz of capacity, were they right?

    No. I have a 160 GB Seagate and it's quiet.

    I too recommend you look into Athlon 64.

    Btw. What is your budget and what will be the primarily use of the computer?

    According to Gigabyte, the fastest chip your mobo supports is the P4-Northwood 3.06G (HT) with fastest FSB as 533MHz, so it certinaly won't support the latest Intel chips (not even Celeron D ).

    Athlon 64 (socket 939) is the way to go, especially when the recent price cuts filter through.

    Looks like the fastest P4 chip is currently the 3.8 GHz model 570J (Socket 775), but I bet that is VERY expensive.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Me. I lost all my data and the drive broke, leaving me 100 down and no computer

    AMD64 bit all the way. It'll coswt you half as much as be the same power untill 64bit Windows comes out then you get something like a 23% proformance increase. Also whats your ram? 7200 is the fastest RPM you can get without cutting the size of your hard drive down alot. Clocker has a 36g 10,000RPM he was selling i think. There great for primary drives as they boot windows and explore folders ultra fast.
