After holding until I could make sense of the 939, PCI-E hoopla, I'm finally gonna stump up for a rig. It'll primarilly be used for general gaming and such but also for an iccle bit of video editing.

I'm thinking:

Abit AX8 (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard £67.00
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester 90nm (Socket 939) £99.95
GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 Value Dual Channel Kit CAS2.5 £87.50
Asus Extreme AX300/TD ATI Radeon X300 128MB £41.95
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 10 NCQ 160GB 6B160MO SATA 8MB Cache £50.25
OcUK Value Floppy Drive £6.50
NEC ND3500 16x DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter £38.70
Arctic Cooling Silentium Silent Midi Tower Case - 350W Seasonic Silent PSU £49.95
OcUK Value Rainbow Series Case Silver With 350W PSU £18.95

I'm concerned about the two cases, I'd rather have the cheaper one because a) I'm cheap, and b) it'll mean the whole thing comes under £500. Will the cheap case be alright or is it (as I suspect) a bit of a dud. (I've linked the cheap case below if anyone has time to have a look). Arigatou.

u can put it in any case u want, but if u dont want one that will implode get the one that is stronger. and unless u are planning on underclocking ull probly need a better psu they those cases have.
1 more thing.....that X300 is going to absoulutly kill u.....i hope your not planning on any games with that thing,.....the most ull be able to get away with will be starcraft lol....i know my X600 blows enough already...i cant wait to get a new 6800 so i can shoot this thing
dont go for cheap cuz in the long run its gunna come back and bite ya in the azz
