Yea ok, :roll:

Why do people post stuff like this? Any fool with even the brain of a squirrel would know without any question the A64 is a clear, decisive, and overwhelming choice out of the processors he asks for advice on.

I think I heard the Pentium jiggle? Give up on this one guys, he's already too far gone!
Most likely has a collection of Blue Man Band CD's. "Dude its a DELL!!!"

I have both P4 and A64
A64 - 939 with Asus, MSI or DFI Mobo, with SATA 150 and Dual channel, Look for 1G memory with 2-2-2 latency such as HyperX, OCZ gold, Corsair XL or PDP low latency, they run around 220 to 250 for a pair of dual sticks but it's worth it. For a case, look for a case with large fan openings in the rear such as the Chenbro sprider case or the honeycomb wire mesh found on cooler master, xoxide and LianLi cases, this helps with airflow and reducing noise.

Despite what AlabamaCajun saud, you don't need super fast RAM with the Athlon 64. If you run a divider you can get performance that is almost as good as 1:1. Cheaper RAM is a better idea when you don't have so much money to be wasting. If you get the DFI board, you can get TwinMOS' SpeedPremium RAM which if given enough voltage can be as good as stuff 2.5* its price.
