Very cool !
I seem to have preferred AMD processor setups Lately, myself.
Let us know just how bad it screams !
Yeh, nothing quite like having a gig of RAM.
Go dude !

My current build is similar:

AMD64 Venice 3200 (I think)
1 gig Cosair VS Ram
PCI-E X800XL MSI Dual DVI Graphics Card
MSI Neo4 mobo
Lite-on DVD Burner
Lite-on DVD Reader
WD 200gig HD
XP

19" Dell 1905fs, getting another soon..

Its a pretty creamy system, but on my second mobo, my Asus A8N-e junked out after 2 months.. I don't like the MSI as much, but its what I could get when my mobo died mid school year.

looks good, I'm wondering why AMD? I guess I'm stuck on Intell due to the fact that a very good friend runs a computer shop and has seen too many conflicts with AMD. He does alot of commercial and business networking and has seen AMD conflict with software many times

I also work for a Computer Consaulting Company. I have never run anything but AMD at home and I am currently running an AMD 64 3700. I have never had any issue with any software or hardware conflicts due to the processor. Been at least 7 to 10 years now. There have been many times that I have loaded test servers at home with busness software such as windows server, Linux, BSD, SQL, Exchange server the list goes on and still never an issue due to the processor.

AMD is the best bang for the buck and great for gaming.

Here is my current rig

ASPIRE X-Superalien ATXA6SW-GN/500 Green Aluminum Server Computer Case
DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR MotherBoard
AMD Athlon 64 3700+
Geforce 6800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
OCZ EL Platinum Revision 2 1GB memory
Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive
HITACHI Deskstar 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
ViewSonic VX924 Black/Silver 19" 3ms Monitor

I still can upgrade to a dual core and add a second video card and run sli

Lol, anyone ever notice the correlation?

People who buy AMD also buy ATI

People who buy Intel also buy Nvidia

my last setup was AMD with Gforce. I have just built my newest, and am waiting on the graphics card (christmas) it will be ATI because I can get better performace for the cash.
PS, I have this case, it looks pretty good. I have one side off now for cooling, but plan on adding another fan...

Good Setup!! Personally I would have gone with the 3200+ Venice core, from all I have read it has a slightly better memory handling operation. For me I went the 3200 route and just overclocked it to 3.9ghz. One day I will post a picture, if I ever get one taken.

Those are cool cases! You can take them anywhere, and they arent heavy or bulky! I wanted one, but mine came with a decent looking one, so that will wait.

Actually, most of the people I know run AMD processors with SLi chipsets and run dual nVidia graphics cards on that system.

Thanks. It is nice, but they cost arround 120 bucks, and fo gaming you really need more than a 120 mm PS fan and the PCI slot fan. Sucks to cut on a case like that, thats why it just has a side off right now.

Holy crap, that is one powerful rig. And CHEAP! very nice. I guess 64-bit is the way to go, that will be my next comp, but I love my current one. Bought it 2 years ago in april from Dell...their desktops are indestructable. They're still selling the processor that I have in mine. (P4 3.0GHz, 800 mhz FSB)
