This is just a configuration that I've been pondering. The MB and CPU will change when the AM3s come out.

I built it all from Newegg parts. Just ease of looking up. I know I overkilled on RAM, but it means I can re-use parts later too if needed.

And no, I don't think I'll build this...unless the lottery man hands me a check lol

Anything anyone can tell me about various parts of this config? I'd appreciate it.

u can't use DDR3 in a DDR2 m/b?

Hrm...thought there was backward compatibility...guess that's only the CPU then :(

Guess any system I build has to wait til AM3 is out in full force then.

Thanks.
