    I take it your not a fan of Nvidia? Hence the Pro instead of a GT.... Also the ZS is slightly better then the plain 2...

    If you are on a budget get a socket 754 ClawHammer instead of the S939 Newcastle. It's much better. If not, get an FX-53.

    I wouldn't buy an A64 with less than 1MB cache. It's similar to buying a Celeron. Cache is very important on today's CPUs.

    The Shuttle is good but the DFI is a monster if you like overclocking and high performance without having to vmod.

    I did think of a shuttle but it would cost me alot for the shuttle as I can get the case and psu for £35 off my mate. I already own everything on the list except the,

    Cpu
    Case
    PSU
    Mobo
    HDD

    So i do not really see the need to buy new ram or a new gfx card.

    What graphics card? Oh, X800 Pro... Well, I'd get the ZS and the rest looks fine! Also that HDD is almost as fast as a raptor! Nice pic!

    Wait one cotton-picking minute here - I too am looking at the ASUS ABV Deluxe. Are you telling me that the 754 Clawhammer (which version should I be looking at?) is potentially better back-per-buck than a 3500+ S939 which I have listed in my long running saga spec????

    The 3400+ is around the same performance for about £45 cheaper, but it's on S754 so you won't be able to upgrade past the 3700+.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.
