  • CPU Cooling: ASUS Silent Square Sleeve CPU Cooler - Why not one of the good coolers, like the Thermaltake Big Typhoon, Tuniq Tower, or Scythe Ninja
  • PSU:KINGWIN ABT-600MA1W ATX 12V Ver.2.2 600W Power Supply - UGH! Kingwin? Not really a brand known for good PSUs. Get an OCZ GameXStream 600W instead
  • HDD: WD SATA II 250gb (windows), And A WD 200gb PATA 133 HD (Music,Pictures,Videos) - Why not two Sata drives? better performance! And you could even put them in RAID0. PATA is pretty much outdated for HDD's
  • DVD Burner: LITEON DVDRW SATA Burner - SATA is still not fully matured for optical drives. Here I would have gotten a regular IDE drive

Otherwise, good rig! Some comments are minor (like the RAM), but I would definately replace that PSU, even if you bought the other one already.
Thank you for you input!! I have a sata II Bandwith of 3GBPS, And you typicaly don't fill the sata 1.5 bus. So I thought a Raid 0 Or 1 Would of been pointless for any kind of speed boost. And I was given the WD 200 IDE 133 brand new by a friend So I'm not worried about that at all, I'm going to order after christmas a 500GB SATA II drive and get rid of the IDE drive anyway.

And I thought I might give that power supply a test to see what it brings to the table, If it's that bad, I'll RMA It for a OCZ GameXStream, And that CPU cooler after alot of research does really well, I'm going to replace the stock fan with a high CFM Fan, Soo It All works out in the end!

Thank you very much for everything!! Everyone!!

The fact that a single SATA drive does not even get close to filling the SATA bandwidth is even more reason for RAID0 The increase in speed is quite tremendous! See my RAID performance FAQ

Got the PSU and case fans in, Had to eat dinner with the parents, soo now I'm getting the cpu cooler on the motherboard, then it's going in..

Don't worry, I've taken a picture of everything I've done, soo you can see how it's going!

I expect some help on overclocking my C2D, I want to get to 3ghz


Update again soon!!!
