Righty,

Here is a list of the stuff I'm getting in the next couple of days.

Asus A7N8X-E-Deluxe - nForce2 - x8 AGP+Gbit Lan+WiFi+6Ch Sound+SATA+1394+SATA-RAID+USB2

Hercules 256Mb ATI Radeon 9800XT Classic ViVo

Coolermaster Jet-7 AMD Heat Sink Fan

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ *400 FSB* (2.20 GHz) "Barton"

Will this all run in perfect harmony? No incompatability? No problems?

Also, is ATI bringing out another more powerful card out soon?

I don't see any problems...you got some money on your hands, I see.

It's an extremely drooleable system, if that's what you're wondering. Make sure not to get a cheap power supply.

Wht are you using for RAM? The Asus can be a little picky about it.

There is always a new video card just around the corner, but there hasn't been anything annouced as of yet.

Agreed, the SATA drives are the only way to go if you've got something that high-end.

Hmm...the budget is a bit tight but I can just afford it :p
£530 I think it comes to.
Thanks for your help guys!!

(btw, I've got 1gb of pc3200, some random brand me thinks, worked in my A7V8X)

Oh yea another thing I forgot to mention...
I've got a 420w PSU atm, will that power all this stuff?

Well power supplies vary. My rule of thumb is usually the heavier the better. You have to check out the rated full load for that power supply and such.

ati will be coming out with a new product in about 2 months time... if not sooner...

for the cpu I recommend getting @ min perhaps the 3000+ athlon64 cpu from amd... it outperforms most of the other cpu's on the market :)

the better mobo's are teh k8t800 via boards and the best as either msi/asus or gigabyte... all are excellent performers... :)

the cpu retails for just over $220 which is a decent deal :)

spend around 50-80 bucks more (depends where you look) and you can get the 3200+ athlon 64 cpu :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
