This is a great PSU. More power, and cheaper than the Antec. A lot of people on OCN have this PSU, and love it.

Looks good! One more thing I forgot- maybe get a Seagate 7200.10 perpendicular recording drive. The perp technology is a bit faster than the WD drives, and a very very good HDD (I have one!).

I expected to hear conroe in the first reply of this thread XD

THIS IS AN AMD FORUM I WONDER WHY HIS BUILD LOG IS HERE HE MUST WANT TO BUILD AN AMD MACHINE --- HMM FANCY THAT XD

now that is out of the way, Id say wait for the 65nm chips, you cant really go nuts overclocking the 4200+, also the PSU is way overkill unless you really want to SLi (howeve rid recommend just one 7900GS and overclock it to a GT)

If you are going with that processor and plan to overclock, lap that cooler asap.

Im sure if I played with the prices I could save you some money, but there are guys WAYYY better at that than I am.
