    Hm.... I think I was going to build one. But finding compatible parts is hard. Assembly is easy.

    I'd reccomend 2GB RAM. Corsair is another brand you can add to his list.

    (I'm an Nvidia/Intel guy. Core 2 duo just owns AMD in heat and speed and price...)

    Oh yeah, skip the 6600, just go straight to a 7 at least. With the 8800 out, the 7's are going to plummet.

    Edit: Forgot to say ANTEC is the best case manufacturer..... They don't lie when they say they have 1000w power supplies... They are quiet and support 180 (?) mm fan slots all over the place. You will never over heat with one of those babies and 3 or 4 fans...

    *ponders how much liquid cooling would cost*

    Well, I'm not one to look at the requirements for the games lol, I just play em. but I don't like WoW. while we're on the subject, why the hell is it so hard to find a decent MMO? the only one I've found that I really like is ROSE online. i'd like to find some actual good free MMOs...

    OMG ROSE!!! i LOVED that game during the international beta. but once they took it to the USA beta, they just made it suck. however the final p2p version is OK (played the 1 week trial) but nothing can beat the international beta (i miss my level 56 Muse )

    Guild wars if you want free.

    Just stick to FPS man. Play what the computer gives you the advantage for..

    off-topic: I want Halo 2 on a computer, Xbox, and wii (or at least glovepie working) just to see the advantages of each control method.

    I have guild wars, but the thing I cant stand about it is you seriously do not get very much exp for completed missions, which means it takes forevvveeerr to get to level 10 -_-.

    Mitch, if you'd like to play ROSE again, I play on a private server and its 1500x exp/zulie and drops, if ya want I can link you.

    I've tried silkrose, didnt like it, scions of fate was meh, theres some others i've tried too many to name lol.

    I have always been an Nvidia fan. No particular reason, just liked em better. I can't remember who made it, but my first was a Voodoo2.

    Yeah, if only because the numbers actually go in order. And the letter extensions are easier...... GT or GTS or GTX. That's about it.

    I used to be an ATI hater, but when the x1900s came out, shoooot they have many advantages and the x2s are coming out like this week or next week.

    crossfire is pure shet. and I retract my statement, the 20 series of ati is already out and apparently they suck due to the fact that ati merged with AMD.

    nvidia wins this round :P
