My System Specs


Also just wondering if one should purchase a shipping insurance option? (This is my first build, so I'm a little nervous and unsure...thanks muchly for the help!)
I never have...but that isn't to say that is the best way to go either, as I purchase more n more items I have more confidence in the shipping!

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico

Exclamation Final Review

I first must say a big "thank-you" to everyone for their input, not just on my build but on all the others. The advice I gleaned from the other posts has led me here...

ASUS P5QL Pro ATX LGA775 P43 DDR2 1PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 Sound GBLAN Motherboard
Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 Dual Core Processor LGA775 2.5GHZ 800FSB 2MB Retail Box
Patriot Viper Extreme Performance 4GB DDR2 2X2GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 Memory Kit *IR-$12*
EVGA E-GEFORCE 9800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ 256BIT GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out Video Card
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive OEM

Antec Sonata III Black ATX 16IN Mid Tower Quiet Case 3X5.25 2X3.5 4X3.5IN 500W 120MM Fan

What do y'all think?
And if I'm going Vista should I shell out the extra $$ and get the Home Premium? I.e. is it worth it?Thanks in advance!
