    Hey People.

    Im going to build myself a new PC within the next few weeks, but I just need some advice on what you would consider the best components to put in it - also helping me ensure I dont miss anything out.

    Basically, I lready have some components within my current PC that I can take to the new one. Notably my RAM, PSU & GFX Card.

    Currently im looking at this set up...

    Case: Antec Nine Hundred/Ultimate Gamer Case
    PSU: X-Power XTX-700TW (Already Own)
    Motherboard: Intel 975X S775 Express ATX DDR2
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Socket 775 2.4GHz
    RAM: Crucial CT2KIT12864AA53E 2x1GB PC2-4200 NonECC CL4 (Already Own)
    Graphics Card: ATI RADEON X1950 Pro 256MB (Already Own)
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 500GB S300

    Simple things like CD/DVD drives I can pick up for not too much, but I am just wondering what you think of it.

    Personally I have no problem building it, trouble comes to me when I choose things that will work together - this is why I would like some help, if you can.

    Anyway, please post some comments on what you would consider changing or keeping - it would help me alot! Thankyou!

    I would stick with that mobo. Or you can change to a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3. I just got one for a Pentium 4 build and it's supposed to be great for Conroe.
