    As you can see my PC isn't the fastest out there. I am thinking about upgrading my mobo, cpu, and ram. Let me know what you think about these choices and if it will be compatible.

    CPU: 1x Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Processor (Northwood) 2.4GHz, 533MHz FSB, Socket 478 Retail
    LINK

    Motherboard: 1x Asus P4T533 RAID i850E P4 Socket478 400 / 533 FSB , 2 x 232-pin 32-bit RIMM 3200/4200 UDMA133 RAID w/ Audio / USB 2.0 ATX MB - Retail LINK

    RAM: 1x Samsung 256MB RDRAM 32bit 232-pins RIMM 4200 1066MHz LINK

    P.S. What do you think about 1 32 bit RIMM 4200 ram module instead of the conventional 2 RIMM 3200 ram modules?

    Do you think that will be widly accepted in the future and make RIMM 3200 a thing of the past?

    I think I need a new power supply. Does anyone know of a good brand and how many watts you think I will need.

    Do you think I am gonna get stuck with the RIMM 4200 Ram, and its not going to be the standard in the future?
