ntomer, config looks good.
but, the board supports only DDR2 667. confirm it pls.
save the pennies on DDR2-800, get the 667. not much of a difference for normal usage.

I bought a new computer.
AMD X2 4000+ Brisbane
2 GB DD2-667 Kingston
Liteon DVD writer
i-ball case
Pleomax mouse and keyboard

Rs.17000 !
Currently playing Richard Burns ;-)

I built this in September and am planning an upgrade sometime in the next few months. Need to swap the graphics card for a good DX10 card (have the 8800 GT in mind but that may change). Will be be doing that along with an additional 1 GB of RAM. Also need to move to Vista at some point - hate the OS but no DirectX 10 in XP so have to get it

Well, I just got delivery of my new computer today.

The ubercool top-of-the-line 24" iMac.

The only change I made was upgrade to Apple original 4GB ram.
Sorry about the poor photo, but I will post a better one soon.
