Alright. First off thanks


Alright. First off thanks everyone for your help. I decided to go ahead and build my own. This is what I got so far:

Asus P5WD2 Premium motherboard
Intel Pentium D 820 2.8Ghz chip
Antec Sonata II case
2 gig corsair PC4200 – 533fsb memory
Pioneer DVR100 Optical Dr.
nvidia geforce 6600 256mb dual video out PCI x16 video card
WD 250 gig HD w/16mb cache
Windows XP Pro

I think this is enough to get my basic system going. Once I get this system up and running then I will buy 2 additional 250GB hard drives and install them in a RAID 0 setup. (Another project for later).
I bought everything from local computer shops to save myself from money. So far I have spent just a little over 1K for everything. I am going to assemble it this weekend. I do have some basic computer knowledge and I will take my time, read the motherboard manual and make sure I connect everything correctly. This I am sure I can do.
The part that concerns me is firing it up and having to configure the BIOS. This is all new to me. So, be prepared to see a new thread from me asking what my screen means when it says………… 🙂 .
Thanks for all your help so far and thanks in advance for the help in the future!!
