    Thoughts and guide me

    After a load of hassle that Im going through atm with all my hardware blowing up and all Im thinking it might be time to go back to basics.

    My PC usage is :
    70% Web
    20% Watching dvds/divx
    10% Gaming

    With music running nearly all the time.

    I currenlty have
    A AMD 64 ( 754 )
    9800 xt with artic cooler 3
    Sonic Fury
    DVD Drive
    NEC 3500 DVD Burner
    1 x 200 GB IDE
    1 x 120 GB IDE
    2 x 512mb pc3200 400mhz OCZ

    I would need to sell all my current cases/mobos etc to fund this.And would like to keep as much as possible of the current setup in the SFF. Not really botherd about o/c anymore and just needs to be stable and reliable.

    So what would be the best setup I could go for? And some links/prices would be great.

    Cheers

    Ch!lled

    You could just get a SN85G4 that will take your

    AMD 64 754
    9800XT
    NEC 3500 Burner
    Both hard drives
    and your ram
    If you're Sonic Fury is PCI you can slap that in as well

    so just chuck your case and get a USB2.0 case for that other DVD drive.

    If at all possible I might order a SFF tonight as I need a base station for my work really by the weekend so all comments welcome.

    Also what HS and Fan will fit on the shappire 9800? I take it I will need to remove the Artic Cooler so looking for a decent replacment that will fit.

    The dvd cable only has one, and the one in the box was also a one.
