    one suggestion .... get a case without a powersupply, and get a seperate power supply.

    the ones that come w/ the case usually suck, and you'll have to get a better one anyway.

    I'd either get an AMD64 or get a high end intel instead of the AMD 32 bit processors they will become very obsolete very quickly...
