First of all, thanks to everyone who posted in my graphics card thread. I've decided to go with the passively-cooled 8600GT. i've spent some time looking on Newegg and have come up with the following parts list: Case - Coolermaster Centurion 5 CAC-T05 Black/Silver (50.00) Power Supply - Antec EarthWatts (50.00) CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (85.00) Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 250GB SATA (65.00) Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-M61P-S3 (75.00) Video Card - GIGABYTE GeForce 8600GT (113.00) RAM - A-DATA 2GB (48.00) Optical Drive - Samsung SATA DVD/CD Burner (32.00) Monitor - Dell S199WFP (183.00) Total - $701.00 I made a Google Spreadsheet of these parts, so you can click on the parts' names to get to the associated product pages. Basically, I want to use this computer for a lot of different things, including Windows development using Visual Studio, audio recording, and some gaming (games like Battlefield 2/2142, Call of Duty 1/2/4, etc.). Will this be a good rig, or are there a few components that might work better? Will I run into any compatibility issues between components? Thanks again to everyone for your help!
