:withstupid: agreed, plus rather than a 9700 get a 9800.

I'm slightly suspicious of the MB, though I'm not sure how good it actually is.

Also.. I would have to suggest going A64 if you can.. whats your budget like?

first.. its a decent setup.. go with the 9700 pro.. if you can find one.. go with the 40 then 160 gb hard drive. This is always a good idea because you can keep regular backups of your small hd.. and if something happens, just load up the backup.. and if 1 drive fails, you don

I agree with the others on two sticks of RAM, 4 x 256 with a P4 is just an unecessary complication. I don't know that Aopen motherboard either, but an IC7G or a DFI Infinity (or even a P4C800) would work well. For the HDD, I would just get the one big one and set up an OS/apps partition and a storage partition. If he's not a big gamer, a 9600XT All-In-Wonder would be a nice thing to have.

my ic7 g was a pos

how is using all 4 channels unecessary?

this is not for gaming

i was planning on the os and other utilities to be installed on the 40 gig and 160 for music

no use for an all in wonder card

 

is the 9600 a better card than the 9700?

i also saw that there is a x600 and x700 now

how do those compare?
