    (i just added my email to the list too.)

    i'd say, as far as processors, you might want to get some of the upper mid-range stuff, like 600E p3s, athlon 700s, i.e. with good performance but priced way under an 800mhz something.

    maybe find out what geforce card here everybody wants, and order a crate of those too.

    and some select abit boards. i'm not too current on them now so i won't make specific suggestions.

    good luck.

    Thought most RAM is ECC nowadays,don't think I've ever had a stick that wasn't come to think of it, and I usually buy generic.

    We all pretty much just want memory that can hit high bus speeds. PC-133 2-2-2 is a good choice. No one can go back after using 2-2-2.
    You people who think you know everything really piss people like me off who really do know everything.

    I'm almost positive that the RAM I have n here is ECC as sandra shows the the ID's as ECC, but don't qoute me on that. I need to look at some catalogs again but I'm pretty sure that in the UK we don't really get a choice, it's usually always ECC.

    Though I can't see the use of it. If it detects an error it just hangs the system, which it would most likely do with an error anyway.
