Note: the motherboard does not support RAID. If you want RAID in the future, look for a different, more expensive, board.

Bah to RAID, I don't like the sound of losing data, if I need speed I'll just buy a raptor or something...

That build looks really great, and I'm definately going to use that as my prototype for December (hopefully there will be some price drops in that time!). The best part is once I get a new computer, I'm gunna push this tiny 3.2 P4 to the highest it can go

Now to decide whether to spend 80$ (splitting it with the parents) on some RAM. I'd like a 512MB x2 set, DDR667. Corsair, OCZ, Crucial, G. Skill? Anything, I'm not really sure what brand would be the best for my machine.

Thanks for all your help! (Chozart )
