I have successfully completed my ongoing build of my new pc. I have selected after careful consideration (and price) to step down from RDRAM technology ( which is still the best in my opinion) and join the Ranks of DDR. For My motherboard i have chosen the MSI 865PE NEO2-P, 3 256MB pc2700 DDR RAM, and a P4 2.6 GHZ CPU. Coolermaster jetmaster 4 cpu cooler and i am using my old but beefed Geforce 3 ti200 with a iceberq gpu fan. i have to say i was quite suprised with the amount of detail provided by the manual on the layout of the motherboard. i did have some difficulties, with hooking up the powerswitch cable to the board but after studying the manual i got that all figured out. All in all i have to say i am quite satisified with my new rig and it looks awesome in my new Electric Blue Gaurdian Case By NZXT. Now let's Breakdown the costs. MotherBoard 149.99 (Compusa) Memory (3) 54.99 (Compusa) 20.00 mail in rebate for each. JetMaster 4 24.99 (CoolerGuys) Case 79.99 (CoolerGuys) CPU 249.99 (compusa) Grand total 669.96 i know alot of the componets i could have shopped for a better price, but it was never about price, and it was available now, which is what mattered most. I am happy with what i got and any feed back you can give would be greatly appreciated. I am in Search of a new card so any suggestions would help. 250.00 or less.
