    After playing around with my Athlon XP Machines for so long. Overclocking 1 for fun. I've decided to do some upgrading. 2 Machines.

    AMD64 Gaming Rig:

    AMD64 3200+ Socket 939 90nm - $199 Monarchcomputers.com
    1GB (512mb x 2) OCZ EL Platinum Revision 2.0 - $273 Newegg.com
    MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum Revision 2.0 - $???? As noone has it in stock it seems
    Thermaltake XP-90 Heatsink - $??? Will buy from Newegg.com
    Panaflo 92mm Fan with Fan Monitor - No clue where to get one of these at the moment.
    Ati Radeon 9800 Pro AIW until I upgrade that later (already have this)
    Seagate 120GB SATA drive (have it)
    SB Audigy 2 Platinum (have it)
    Thermaltake 480W Silent Purepower XaserIII Edition PSU (have it)
    BenQ DW-1620 DVD+-RW Drive Dual Layer 16x (Have it)
    NEC 16X DVD Drive

    Also, my workhorse computer will be rebuilt.

    Intel P4 Workhorse Rig:
    Intel P4 3.4ghrz HT 550 Processor
    IntelĀ® Desktop Board BOXD915PBLL (probably will switch this out with another board)
    1GB Samsung PC3200 Ram
    This will have about 6 HDs ranging from 100GB to 200GB all WD for storage
    Ati Radeon 9000 Pro 128MB Video card (have it) Will get the 9800 Pro AIW when that gets upgraded.
    NEC 2510A DVD+/-RW Drive
    Will use onboard sound.

    Obviously the Video cards are the main things holding me back. But I'm waiting for some price drops.

    Any suggestions or anyone know where to get a good Panaflo 92mm fan with speed control and monitoring from?
